Live usage

All parameters can be tweaked in realtime. If you are using a mouse, the plugin smoothes your movements automatically - there won't be clicks or glitches. The adaptive Midi control smoothing provides parameter changes with no zippering artifacts. A Midi learn function automatically assigns Midi #CC to your controller and remembers it on startup. FilterBank3 is never out-of-beat because it automatically synchronizes delay times, LFO's and the step sequencer to your host's BPM rate.

User friendly interface

A display visualizes in realtime what you are doing, this makes it easy to understand what you are currently tweaking. In addition the user interface offers tool tips and help.
