Major changes since version 1 include:

  • Audio Units and VST support for Mac OS X
  • Full sidechaining (for multi-track hosts) - control effects on one track using audio from a different track
  • MIDI Learn gives instant control of any QFX plug-in using an external MIDI control surface
  • Advanced MIDI control modules allow keyboard-driven effects to be built using the Workbench
  • Improved support for 3rd party DirectX-VST adapters
  • Completely new ready-to-use plug-ins: SideDyn: sidechain compressor & gate, eg for voice ducking between tracks, ChainSaw: sidechaining resonant filter for multi-track hosts, Trance Gate: 32 step rhythmic gate & filter, synchronises to host tempo, Q-Delay: tempo based 3 channel delay, filter & panner

In addition to the Workbench and 50+ Factory Effects, customers buying Quantum FX v2 will receive two bonus premium plug-ins:

  • Destination: a full mastering toolkit in one effect.
  • Aura: a virtual guitar amp loosely modelled on a classic British design but with a highly modified gain/EQ structure.
