SNAMM04: E-MU Packs DSP Power To VST Plugins
By the Power invested in me

E-MU Systems has announced its new PowerFX hardware-accelerated VST effects, which allows all E-MU Digital Audio Systems and Emulator X owners to run E-MU's hardware-accelerated E-DSP effects as full-blown VST plug-ins, including automation of effects parameters. The PowerFX software release also adds a new reverb and seven new delay algorithms to E-MU's comprehensive effects palette. PowerFX is a free upgrade available at www.emu.com to all Digital Audio Systems and Emulator X owners, and will start shipping with all new units starting early August 2004. Sadly, this is still a Windows only system - no doubt Mac users would love to get their hands on it - speaking as one myself I can only concur! Over 500 hardware-accelerated VST effects, plus a host of new plug-in effects included
These PowerFX presets are identical to the presets currently found in the PatchMix DSP Effects Palette (including all user presets), offering seamless effects compatibility across both environments. PowerFX works like any other VST plug-in, effects are instantiated in a VST insert or aux send locations within the application, and the desired effect (or group of effects) is simply dragged from the Effects Palette field to the center Insert Strip. All parameters for the selected effect can be viewed and edited in the Effects Window, and users can automate and save all parameter settings within the VST environment. And as a fully-featured VST plug-in, PowerFX provides automatic compensation for system latencies and proper synchronization of audio throughout the VST chain. The PowerFX software launch also marks the release of E-MU's first expansion plug-in effects, adding a new reverb and seven new delay algorithms to E-MU's comprehensive Effects Palette. These new algorithms optimize the resources of E-MU's E-DSP effects engine, allowing users to run more reverbs and delays than before. These new effects are also free to all Digital Audio System and Emulator X owners, and will be available for download at
