Repeat-X: does crazy stuff to your audio.
Repeat-X: does crazy stuff to your audio.

Repeat-X is a new multi-effect/stutter plugin from Z3 Audiolabs that's designed for manipulating audio in realtime. It comes with nine effect algorithms, each of which has its own host-syncable step sequencer and a modulation/gate section.

All parameters can be assigned to your controller using MIDI learn, and each effect can be positioned in the signal chain using a wiring system known as Signalflow. Repeat-X has been designed with live performance in mind, but can also be employed in your studio projects.

Find out more below - Repeat X is available now in PC/VST format and costs €39.90. A demo is available, too.

Find out more at the Z3 Audiolabs website.
