Vbox is a multi-effects control environment for VST Plug-In effects. Sort of a viirtial effects box, Vbox can combine, re-patch, and mix in real-time any VST plug-ins on the market. It allows you to run several Plug-Ins on one insert point and offers more flexible routing than you get from a straight VST insert.
Vbox takes full advantage of the processing power of your Power Macintosh, and requires no additional hardware. As a result, Vbox can create virtually millions of sonic combinations in real-time, while your audio keeps playing. Using a unique effects matrix, Vbox lets you combine and edit multiple individual plug-ins per channel. You can patch plug-ins in series, in parallel, or in series/parallel. You can also hot-swap plug-ins. Vbox offers instant muting, soloing, and editing of parameters, as well as a master wet/dry balance, plus bypass and A/B compare.
Each plug-in's individual input/output levels can be adjusted without ever leaving the Vbox control window, and stereo metering is accurate at every stage. Vbox also enables you to create, store and manage an infinite number of programmed effects, and ships with tons of great presets. Finally, Vbox will ship with more than 25 free VST plug-ins to get you started.
Integrated, Stand-Alone, and Even Live
Vbox functions as an integrated solution within any VST-compatible host application, including BIAS Peak, Steinberg Cubase, Emagic Logic, and others. As an added bonus, BIAS Peak VST will include a free copy of Vbox SE, a special Peak-integrated edition of Vbox that does not operate in stand-alone mode. As a stand-alone signal processor, Vbox is compatible with both mono and stereo AIFF and SDII audio files. And Vbox can even function as a live signal processor, by processing audio CDs, mixer and other audio feeds - making it a killer live performance application.
Pricing and Availability
BIAS Vbox will be available for a suggested retail price of US $129.00 at the end of Q1, 2001.
