Well, lets start with what Magic Vox is
not: it is not a guitar emulator, and it is not intended to
replace real guitars on your tracks. Instead, Magic Vox uses the beautiful sonic
qualities of guitar harmonics (Flageolets),
as a basis for the creation of a totally new
playable and expressive musical instrument, with a
distinctive mesmerizing sound!
selected the best sounding guitars for this mission, and carefully
sampled the harmonics that each guitar produces (See the
full list of guitars below). Each guitar brings its own
harmonic character and enables the creation of new
different sounds, and you can layer two guitar sources
for hybrid sounds and richer evolving tones. The advanced synthesis engine
enables interesting sound sculpting options, and the
noise-shaper section brings the vintage analog scent
when it is needed.
Magic Vox expanded effect section is an integral part
of the sound design process. This section includes
traditional effects like Delay and reverb, along with
special effects like the Granular and magic effects. The
Rotator: Smooth and beautiful effect that
accurately emulates a rotary speaker.
Granular: Uses granular synthesis techniques for
the creation of sound clouds and other special effects.
Magic: Has two modes: white magic for a gentle
magical touch, and black magic when you a wild reaction
Chorus: Traditional chorus sound. Has a special
extreme mode that enables you to add metallic flavor to
Distortion: 3 modes of distortion are available:
Booster, Rectifier and Crusher. The distorted sound can
be passed through a dedicated resonant filter for
special distortion effects.
Delay: Advanced delay with a resonant
filter, for coloring the delayed sound.
Reverb: The reverb unit is being used as a send
effect, so you can add reverb to each of your two sound
Magic Vox also has a
Multimode resonant filter section (Lowpass,
Bandpass, Highpass and Notch), two equalizers (one for
each sound source), and two VU meters for volume
can produce a wide range of sounds: from fantastic velvet keyboards to
sweet distorted leads, organs and fender-rhodes style
strange mallets, exotic string instruments, and many other innovative
beautiful tones that doesn't have a name yet- everything
with a delicate touch of magic!
