Multi FX Plugin

As musicians, we're continuously looking for innovative approaches to advance our art. We want to provide spectacular, innovative, and distinctive sounds. Even if outboard gear and complicated plugin chains have their uses, sometimes you simply need a simple patch to give something a special flavor. Obsidian can produce spectacular effects with just a few clicks, making your synths, bass lines, and vocals stand out from the crowd.

Obsidian is a difficult beast to define and explain, so it's probably best to ignore the science and simply give it a try to experience the mind-bending modulation it has to offer. The plugin resembles a creative tool more than a conventional audio gadget. Obsidian will add color with a secret-sauce FX matrix and spectral delay, changing the character and timbre of any audio input in sometimes unexpected ways.

For those who want to change their audio without losing what made it distinctive in the first place, this is a very creative plugin.

Freq & Hype Matrix

The XY pad at the centre of OBSIDIAN is where the magic happens, with a central node that can be dragged or automated in your DAW to creatively move between different processing styles. FREQ controls the frequency and shape of the audio-rate modulation. HYPE sets the modulation depth and other special parameters. This secret combination of FX creates additional harmonics that add excitement and colour to your sounds. In essence, the incoming signal is modulated at a very high rate and then formant shifted, before being passed through a spectral delay line.

Creative Spectral Delay

The delay unit within OBSIDIAN is something rather beautiful. Containing controls for TIME, MODE and FEEDBACK, this module returns audio to the main matrix to create ever-shifting feedback. This is a delay with deceptively simple controls that has many creative uses; rhythmic effects, ambient textures, subtle vocal thickening and big-room synth echoes. Delay TIME can be changed, from 10ms - 2s to straight, triplet and dotted note partitions. Change the MODE time to freeplay, or sync to the BPM of your host project. Adjust FEEDBACK from 0-100% with precise control.


When you’re stuck for ideas, or just want OBSIDIAN to suggest a magical metamorphosis, hit the central dice icon. The XY pad will be randomized, automatically choosing some stunning effects to shape your audio.

Delay & Filter

Delay the processing by up to 100 milliseconds, useful for carving out a space between the original audio and the chorus signal. The high and low pass Filter dials help to define the processed audio, very handy if you only need some bass grunt or top-end sheen.


For creative purposes it’s useful to be able to mix the effected audio that OBSIDIAN produces with the original source audio. Use the Mix slider for this and conjure every kind of processing from subtle transformations, to full-on dub-style modulations that spin into infinity.


With many included presets, it’s easy to find the ideal way to modulate your music. These factory options can be used on guitars, bass, drums, synths, vocals and almost any kind of audio signal. The presets include everything from subtle transformations to full-on strangled mutations.
