DFX is a powerful real-time Quad Multi-Effects Processor for iPad. With an intuitive and beautiful user interface for easy playability and instant fun.

We are curious. We like new experiences. We welcome unexpected discoveries. And... we are musicians. It was an obvious choice for us to develop for the iPad the multi-effects that we wanted, that we needed for our thirst for sound. Four powerful and multipurpose chained effects, driven by trackpads for fast and easy sonic explorations. Like a million of pedal boards on a device.

Plug in any audio source, a guitar, a bass, a microphone, a DJ mixer. Or play your favorite iOS synth or drum machine with Audiobus or Apple Inter-App Audio. Or why not playing a track from your iTunes Music Library. Select one, two, three or four effects amongst 35 hi-quality digital audio effects and explore endless sonic possibilities. Delays, echos, reverbs, filters, tremolo, autowah, compressors, distortions, vocoders, resonators, etc… more possibilities that you can imagine.

At last, but not least, DFX is also a great little sound design machine. Just select one of the built-in tone synthesizers on the first effect and let your imagination build new sound landscapes at the tip of your fingers. We have had a lot fun making ours in the Factory presets.

No in-apps, no ads, no fuss. DFX is simple, intuitive and fun. No user guide required ;^)

Very cool

Normally I wait at least a few days before I review an app to give myself enough time to give it a fair shake, as sometime features are not as intuitive or hidden, but after not even a hour ( more like half ) of buying this, Its already a home run. It packs plenty of fx and features, from basic things you need to extreme experimental things for way out soundscapes , I would definitely recommend it.
* ok, after another day of use, I had to take away a star due to IAA not working. When I try using it in Auria it just crashes. Audiobus does work but I prefer IAA.

Just doesn’t do what the box says

I bought this app a couple of weeks ago, despite it being very old and not AUV3 because it looked interesting, and I’m not one of those aUV3 or die types. But it just does not work. Now that Audiobus is supposedly supported, it still doesn’t work. When I try and launch it in Audiobus 3 it just crashes over and over.I would get a refund, but it’s too late and I was kind of hoping they get their act together. The rest of their apps are fine.

Been looking forward to this one; better than expected in every way

This delivers every bit as much awesomeness as Turnado at a fraction of the cost. Ultra stable, even on older devices. Good job Fingerlab! I have always appreciated the attention given to DM1- it has been awesome watching this app grow over the years. I would anticipate more cool surprises in the future from this one as well. Extra respect for the low asking price. Too many developers overcharge for what usually ends up being mostly unimpressive duds or redundant clones of lack-luster apps. Even a lot of the decent ones often go overboard when it comes to pricing and IAPs. It is nice to see that some developers still get it. Many thanks.
