Parallax is a unique effect that is part vocoder and part echo/reverb matrix. It can create subtle, modulating filter effects that swell and transform through beautiful, algorithmic spaces. At its heart is a 10-band filterbank that can be shifted in real time to bring out resonances, shift tonal balance and animate specific frequencies. The output of the filter stage is processed by a simple yet effective delay line and algorithmic blurring. With these two chains of processors sounds can be completely resculpted, transformed and reconfigured in frequency and spatial balance.
INSPECT sets the lowest affected frequency that will be processed by the filterbank. You can think of it as a high-pass filter.
The VECTOR control sets the bandwidth of the filters in the series.
VELOCITY modulates VECTOR. As the amount of VELOCITY increases, the modulation rate also increases.
ECHO is a fixed, tempo-synced delay line with built-in feedback.
ABYSS is an algorithmic space and blurring effect. Use it with ECHO to sculpt new spaces.
