Master FX – new multi-effects app from Igor Vasilliev

Download from iTunes App StoreMaster FX logoIf you have been a regular visitor to the Music App Blog for a while, you might recall that I’ve reviewed both the MasterRecord and Audio Mastering apps from Igor Vasilliev (iMusicAlbum). I was impressed by both of these apps and for a touch of analog warmth or to add some final ‘mastering’ punch and sparkle to your stereo mix, both apps have plenty to offer the iOS musician who uses their iPad for multi-track recording duties.

Igor is now back with a third iOS effect app to tempt you with; Master FX. This new app essentially provides a flexible multi-effects unit in a single app and can be used for real-time processing of either a single stereo signal or two separate signals (on the left and right channels). It can also be used as an effects processor alongside other iOS music apps as it supports Audiobus.

You can customise which effect types appears in each of Master FX's slots.

The built-in effects modules include a 3-Band parametric equalizer, chorus, flanger, pitch modulator, delay, reverb, compressor and finally a limiter onthe main output. Up to six effects can be used at once but the user has full control over the selection of modules and the order in which the processing is done It is also possible to have more than one instance of a module within the signal chain.

Each effects type has a range of detailed controls to fine tune the effects processing.

As shown in the example screen shots, the interface follows the same styling as both MasterRecord and Audio Mastering so if you are familiar with those apps, you will feel very much at home with Master FX. And as well as being useful in an iOS recording context, the app includes a very neat preset feature that makes it great for using in a live context.

I’ve only had a brief play so far but my initial tests suggests the processing is up to the same high standards as Igor’s other apps. Hopefully, I’ll do a full review of Master FX on the blog next week when I’ve had a little more time to experiment.
