Exponential Audio  Excalibur

Creative effects for music and sound design

Excalibur is a stereo multi-effects plug-in unlike any other. With several modulation, pitch-shifting, and dynamics effect modules, Excalibur has the creative tools to tackle any music production, post production, or sound design project. Four independent voice oscillators can subtly change the timbre of your recordings or drastically transform any audio source with swirling kinetic effects.


Highlights

Imagination, meet innovation

Born of the same DSP algorithms that cemented Exponential Audio as a manufacturer of indispensable reverb tools, Excalibur takes this effect processing technology with a totally unique approach to effect routing. Excalibur is driven by four independent voice modules, which can be used to route audio signal and effect parameters through one another, creating unique modulation effects you’ve never experienced before.
