truc2 is a multi-effect plug-in with 4 different effect modules and two automated XY pads to modulate their levels and parameters. 

It is designed to add variation and movement, anywhere along the scale of subtle to overkill and is suitable for any material. The 4 effect modules are DIRT, GRAIN, RING and DELAY. The first XY pad modulates the volume/mix level of each module, whilst the second XY pad modulates any 4 of the 15 automatable parameters. Both XY pads can be moved manually and additionally automated with a variety of LFO shapes, speeds and depths.

  • DIRT – 18 flavours of distortion, 3 types of degrading and a resonant state-variable filter.
  • GRAIN – Tempo-sync Granulising with 6 envelope shapes and pitch/size/rate randomisation.
  • RING – Ring modulation with LFO, 14 tones, 11 LFO waveforms, vol and pan modulation.
  • DELAY – Tempo-sync delay with reverse, ping-pong and resonant LP filter.
  • 2 XY pads with simultaneous manual and automatic modulation.
  • Modulate the effect module overall volume or wet/dry mix level.
  • Modulate any 4 from 15 of the parameters in the 4 effect modules.
  • Tempo-sync LFO for each XY pad axis, with 16 waveforms and adjustable depth and phase.
  • Dragable XY pucks for manual modulation, even when automated by LFO.
  • Graphical representation of XY and parameter modulation to see at a glance what is automated.
  • 120 presets.
  • bonus truc2 mini plug-in.
