“FLUX:FX live – This video is showing Adrian Belew himself demoing the app at the world-famous Paradiso in Amsterdam, playing a variation on his track ‘Drive’. For the purposes of the demonstration, audio engineer Daniel Rowland is manipulating the FLUX:FX app using ‘call n answer’ settings.
Adrian is playing his custom Parker Fly, through a Roland VG99 and into NI Guitar Rig [for his main guitar sounds] and Ableton Live for the basic loop, and then into FLUX:FX for the filtering, delays and forward/reverse loopage. FLUX:FX is also responsible for the loop destruction later on in the piece. The sound is live from the room via the panasonic gh2 camera mic [sorry!].
FLUX:FX is a multi-effect audio processor app for the iPad that lets you ‘play’ your effects. Innovative, intuitive and exciting, FLUX:FX lets you manipulate any audio signal into something entirely new, and redefines the possibilities of audio design and live performance in an app with an almost unlimited range of effect options.
