Authentic Tone - HX Effects features a powerful SHARC audio engine, which faithfully replicates the tonal attributes and dynamic response of vintage and modern effects.

Impulse Responses - Load your favorite third party impulse responses.

Behavioral Modeling - By measuring the unique behavior of analog effects devices down to their individual components, HX Modeling technology offers authentic replications of effects that historically have been difficult to model - like germanium fuzz, and "bucket-brigade" analog delay pedals.

Interaction - The clear and streamlined user interface allows for quick tone creation and effortless tweaking with a minimal learning curve, and without endless diving through complex and confusing menus.

Captive Touch Footswitches - Jump to any block in an instant at the touch of a footswitch, and make quick tweaks to parameters or controller assignments. With convenient colour-coded LED rings, you get instant feedback of footswitch assignments at a glance.

Snapshots - Create multiple variations within a single preset with Snapshots, and effortlessly transition between them without audio dropouts when switching between presets.

I/O Level Shifting - Thanks to a switchable line-level input, HX processors are also a perfect tool for keyboardists, DJs, and producers looking to connect electronic instruments, or use HX Effects as an outboard processor while mixing in the studio.

Routing - With versatile routing options, HX processor integrate effortlessly into pedalboards and studio rigs. Internal routing features parallel stereo signal paths, while inputs and outputs feature stereo-linkable effects loops.

Command Center - Capable of functioning as the command center for any rig, with HX processors, you can sent MIDI commands manually via footswitches or external expression pedals - with the ability to automatically send up to six commands when a preset or snapshot is recalled. You can even send QWERTY hotkey commands via USB!

Analog Bypass - With switchable analog bypass, signals at the inputs are routed directly to the outputs, bypassing all A/D/A conversion.

HX Edit - Featuring the same streamlined user interface as HX processors, HX Edit lets you effortlessly build complicated signal chains, tweak settings and parameters with dedicated sliders, customize footswitch labels, and beyond!
