Divide and sequence. Array splits the input sound using eight smooth resonant band-pass filters with selectable -12 or -36 dB/octave slope. Each band features a separate gate sequencer with up to 32 steps, letting you manipulate the spectrum in a rhythmical fashion.

One sound fits all. With tight synchronisation, smooth gate switching, as well as variable sequencer rate and swing, Array can easily match the timing and feel of any input material. It's a very universal effect that works great on synths, basses, pads, drum and percussion loops – but can also turn static sounds or noise into elaborate motion textures.

Light-speed operation. Thanks to its simple yet stylish interface, Array is incredibly easy to work with. For example, it automatically arranges the sequencer steps in groups of three or four, depending on normal or triplet timing. It also has multiple utility functions for randomising or looping the sequencer, allowing to construct complex, interesting patterns very quickly.
