Manufacturer's Description from FLUX

TRAX - The Next Generation Voice and Sonic Processing Tools.

A suite of three ingenious processors using advanced technology, developed during many years, by the sound analysis/synthesis team at IRCAM. These precision tools provide truly innovative signal transformation algorithms allowing the user to alter sound characteristics such as; pitch, timbre and duration, using a highly intuitive user interface.

 

 

Transformer - Real-time Voice and Sonic Modelling Processor

TRAX Transformer is based on an augmented phase vocoder technology and a cutting edge transformation algorithm, allowing for manipulating characteristic properties of a voice such as gender, age and breath, and on any other sound; expression, formant and pitch.

 

These voice transformation algorithms have already been used, with great success, in international and French cinema productions. (Farinelli, Vatel, Tirésia, Les amours d'Astrée and Céladon).

 

 

Cross Synthesis - Spectral Envelope Morphing Processor

TRAX Cross Synthesis utilizes a phase vocoder (the amplitude and the frequency/phase spectra), to morph the spectral characteristics of two sounds. The amplitude and frequency/phase spectra can be blended continuously and since the features that are used here are strongly nonlinear, the sound morphing is nonlinear as well, offering a way to create a wide range of new exciting and unusual sound effects.

 

 

Source Filter - Enhanced Sound Filtering

TRAX Source Filter is based on a signal model decomposing the signal into a time envelope describing the energy/loudness contour of the sound, and a spectral envelope describing the spectral colour of the sound timbre. The energy contour and the spectral colour of the source sound, can be continuously blended with the spectral colour and energy contour of an arbitrary filtrating sound, allowing transformation that extend well beyond the more common source filter morphing effect.

 

Signal Processing Features

  • Input/Output gain controls for adjusting the levels before and after processing.
  • Dry Mix control (Dry/Wet with gain compensation) allowing for parallel processing or for blending some of the original "peak" into the processed signal.*
  • Bypass routes the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between processed and clean signal.

*TRAX Transformer only

 

Preset and Parameter Handling

 

Preset/Parameter slots

To enhance the workflow the two Preset/Parameter slots, A and B, can be loaded with two full set of parameters at the same time. Apart from saving each preset, a "Global Preset" containing both the A and B settings, and the position of the "Morphing Slider", can be saved.

 

Parameter Morphing Slider with Automation

The Morphing Slider provides morphing between the parameter settings of slot A/B allowing for really creative and useful real-time tweaking. Enabling the Automation control button exposes the Morphing Slider to the host automation.

FLUX Pro Audio and Picture Development

About Manufacturer

Flux:: sound and picture development is a French company involved in pro audio and picture development. We're a new player in the plug-in business. Why founding a new company into this over-crowded domain? We, Flux:: people, believe there is always a place for excellence. Our design is focused on the human element. Senses are bridges between reality and consciousness, between the real world and the imaginary one. We have chosen the best for ears and eyes to free your creativity. We are also aware of the productions short time demand, that's why, every Flux:: plug-in feature a morphing slider between presets that allows users an ultra-fast operation even for plug-ins including many parameters. We haven't chosen between simplicity and sophistication. We think, you need both.

Specifications

Processing Specifications

The TRAX plug-ins, as all Flux:: plug-ins, provide

  • Up to 8 channels Input/Output.*
  • 64-bits internal floating point processing.
  • Sampling rate up to 384 kHz DXD (Pyramix DSP based).
  • Sampling rate up to 384 kHz for native (AU/RTAS/VST).

*Due to the nature of TRAX Cross Synthesis and Source Filter, they only support 2 channels Input/Output.

 

Compatibility

All major native formats are supported

  • Windows - XP, Vista, 7 all in both 32 and 64 bits.
    • VST (2.4)
    • RTAS*
  • Mac OS X (Intel) - 10.5, 10.6, 10.7 in 32 bits.
    • VST (2.4)
