Create music using multiple synthesizers within the tracker style interface
Efflux is a music making application, allowing you to compose tracks using a tracker-style approach; in a tracker a sequence of music is traditionally represented using numeric input: both notes and parameter changes, effects and other commands are entered with the keyboard into a grid of fixed time slots as codes consisting of letters, numbers and hexadecimal digits.
Separate patterns have independent timelines; a complete song consists of a master list of repeated and concatenated patterns. While this seems more cumbersome than using graphically based sequecing, it allows for very precise control of parameter changes.
Apart from being a tracker, Efflux is also a synthesizer. Eight synthesizers are available, each with up to three voices. Apart from using generic waveforms (sine, triangle, square wave), users are also able to draw their own waveforms on-screen which are in turned rendered into WaveTables. Each voice has its own tuning and envelope section, while each synthesizers has its own filter and delay section.
To aid in fast creation, Efflux supports keyboard shortcuts, mouse selection as well as live recording from connected MIDI peripherals.
The application allows storing of songs, importing / exporting them between devices, share them online as well as the option to record the audio output as a WAV file.
