SFX Machine pro

We've gone out of business. We've shut down. We've closed up shop.

The Adobe Premiere format version of SFX Machine debuted at NAMM in 1997 and was released a few months later. It has been available in various formats for 20 years! Not sure, but this may make SFX Machine the longest-selling audio effects plug-in in history. SFX Machine RT (VST format) was released in 2003, and SFX Machine Pro (VST / Audio Unit) has been on the market since 2006.

Along the way, we also published Backwards Machine, Spectral Machine, ReSpatializer, and ChatterBlocker, not to mention our special April 1st products like Turd Polisher Pro. We've had a pretty good run, but all good things must come to an end.

SFX Machine Pro™ lets you create your own effects from scratch. It's now compatible with 32- and 64-bit VST and AU host programs.

SFX Machine Pro includes:
A modular synthesis Preset Editor
Host Tempo Sync
An Output Limiter
Over 300 Presets, including over 50 New Presets
Twice as much delay time as SFX Machine RT

We're pleased to announce that SFX Machine Pro has won an Editor's Choice Award for Best Signal Processing Software from Electronic Musician magazine.


Mac|Life magazine gives SFX Machine Pro an "Awesome" rating and an Editor's Choice award. They say:

"SFX Machine Pro could be the most important tool in your audio arsenal."

BT (Brian Transeau) says:

"SFX Machine is the one effect that has been on my ever-changing list of hardware and software in my studio. If people knew how much modular effects work I've done in this thing and how many of my sounds I'd made using it, one of my best secrets would be out!!

"Actually the coolest thing about it is that anyone who sits down with it and really digs in comes up with totally unique patches. It's an absolute must-have for anyone looking for new and flexible ways to mangle sound."

FutureMusic magazine calls SFX Machine Pro:

"A great sound-mangling proposition for musicians, sound designers, foley artists, soundtrack composers and anyone else looking for interesting new vibes as well as fresh takes on many old favourites.... If you're looking for a potentially endless repository of interesting effects at a great price, this certainly won't disappoint.

"300 highly usable effects units and a highly flexible modular environment for 200 bucks has got to be a winner in anyone's book." [See below for updated pricing.]

For example:

"Your SFX Machine plug-in has provided me with endless hours of exciting exploration in audio processing and sound design. Making music has truly become an inspirational and joyful experience for me! I have spread the word to as many musicians as possible, and they have told me of their own amazing experiences. So THANK YOU and keep up the fantastic work!!!!" — Justin Browning

SFX Machine Pro is the latest and most advanced member of the award-winning SFX Machine family of audio multi-effects plug-ins for Windows and OS X Universal.

The new Host Tempo Sync feature allows you to match LFO frequencies and delay times to your sequencer's tempo.

While SFX Machine Pro is based on a powerful modular synthesis engine, the main screen offers the simplicity of a multi-effects unit, allowing users to select and modify effects with just a few mouse clicks. SFX Machine Pro includes over 50 new presets (with more coming soon).

The Preset Editor gives you direct access to the modular synthesis parameters that make up a preset, allowing you to modify presets or create new presets from scratch:

  SFX Machine Pro 11 DSP Processes SFX Machine Pro 13 modulations

SFX Machine Pro provides full MIDI parameter control for automated preset modification, using a simple 'MIDI Learn' system. This allows a wide range of interaction; for example, filter sweeps can be controlled by your sequencer. Any number of sliders can be automated simultaneously.

Streamlined for use in audio production environments, SFX Machine has been used to do sound design for radio production, TV shows, feature films, CDs and video games. While SFX Machine Pro has an unparalleled collection of effects, from the conventional to the bizarre, it also serves in everyday use as a "swiss army knife" of audio utilities.
