Highlights(This is a STEREO or 2 channel Unit):

• The renowned TriChorus for the best chorusses ever created or the 1210 for chorusses, flanges, widening and stereoizing.
• A LFO/Envelope modulated HPF/LPF stereo Filter.
• Pitch or Volume Modulation for LFO or ENV based FM or AM modulations or pannings.
• A great Stereo Delay with several configurable top notch filters...sort of a slimmed down Optimus Prime in eurorack format.
• A re-developed Reverb with an easy-to-use remote control, featuring dynamics, chorus, transforms and other smart and tuned options.
• A stereo Insert slot with Highpass and Lowpass filters, for patching an effect of your choice into the chain.
• Select and change the order of your effects ON THE FLY!
• Define and optimize DSP usage of the Unit
• Basically this makes your S|C hardware a hardware multi-effect unit, with a big plus...you can load more as long as you have enough DSP power!

• Remote controllable with midi
Controllable with internal AMC/State-manager!! (v2.0)
• Intuitive user interface
• 96kHz capable

 

Why to use?

Because you want great effects...or to combine great effects into even greater effects to make beautifull big ambient soundscapes, fast order switching, dynamic dsp loading.

Faxi Nadu, Ocean Swift Synthesis: Check out Faxi Nadu's video review here: View video review of dNa-EffectRack

Fernando Abreu, Ocean Swift Synthesis:
"A much needed flexible and High Quality MultiFx Unit for the Scope Platform!
Effect Rack is composed by 6 High Quality Effect Modules that can be rearranged on the fly!

CHORUS/FLANGER: A soft vintage like chorus that helps adding some extra personality to your tones.
REVERB: Scope Reverb on Steroids! With some pretty unique features such as Gate, Saturation, Chorus & more... Its organized in a small friendly interface that makes it fun and quick to tweak.
MODULATE: The Modulate Unit can modulate pitch and volume! Pitch modulation on very soft settings works great as a Stereo Enhancer; adds amazing depth and surround to anything you throw at it! There are plenty of uses for it, Volume modulation works great on drums and drum-groups, a sort of gate effect with great sound and character! Can also be used for panning.
MODULATE can also sound like a ring modulator effect when working on very insanely fast rate settings!
DELAY has pretty much everything needed! The added filters are a clever add-on and a Must to a already great sounding delay.
FILTER: A Small LowPass and HighPass Filter, can easily be used for EQ and soft tone changes, or has a creative filter with LFO manipulations.
INSERT: An Insert Effect Unit, were you can add your favorite Scope plugins. It also features handy low or high cut EQ.

These are my first impressions, but there is more to this device than i can describe here. With the dNa-EffectRack, dNa offers a very intelligent device with great sonic capabilities and almost infinite uses! The Scope platform was really missing a new multi-effect plugin and dNa has delivered it.”

Features:

  • Easy to use: Select an effectmodule from above, and start tweaking
  • DynamicDSP: dynamic distribution of DSP power and functions which are not used are not loaded onto DSP’s for highly efficient DSP usage.
  • Remote controllable through MIDI: Control the parameters for example with an external midi-controller.
  • Automation of parameters through MIDI: When you custom assign the device parameters to midi-CC signals(just right click on a parameter), the device sends out MIDI signals which you can "record" in you sequencer, thus you can automate the device.
  • Saves in screensets
  • Compatible with Scope software 5x and 4x
  • Compatible with all Scope hardware, PCI cards* and Xite
  • 96kHz capable**
    * please take note on DSP-usage/Minimum requirements!
    ** see manual for notes on 96k operation (see bottom of page)

Specifications/Parameters:

For parameters description, see the manual. Downloadable at bottom of this page.

DSP-Usage / Minimum requirements:

The dNa-EffectRack will use roughly between 160 ~ 5210 DSP cycles depending on settings, based on the old 66Mhz SHARC (older CW cards). (Min around 16% of one SHARC max just over five 66Mhz SHARC(@48khz))

DISCLAIMER / IMPORTANT: If you only have a Luna, Pulsar1 or maybe even Pulsar2 PCI boards, we cannot guarantee you will be able to use the plugin to the full extent. It is highly optimised, but uses a lot of DSP processing. These boards alone just don't have enough DSP's to run it fully loaded (like for example with the more advanced SC reverbs). If you have boards combined, it's probably not a problem. Check Faxi's video made on a test sytem with 2 LUNA's and 1 Pulsar1 (that is 10 DSP's)
