All About Excalibur
Excalibur is the most powerful and flexible effects plug-in you can find.
During development our testers and previewers have honoured us by comparing Excalibur to many classic studio effects units, we'll let you decide which ones when you hear it. We think emulation is nice, but we wanted to take that and build on it, adding all the things you could have never have done with the original hardware units.
We asked those who got to preview Excalibur how they would describe it, they said:
Imagine a multi-effects unit that works like a modular synth and you're starting to get close to the heart of Excalibur.
Its modular architecture allows you to assemble millions of effects, configured in ways you've only been able to imagine.
Mac and Windows. 32/64 bit. AAX, AU, VST, VST3 (preliminary), RTAS. Supports sample rates from 44.1k to 384K.
Any Intel computer running at 2GHz or above. Multiple cores strongly recommended. Display of at least 1024 x 768. You'll also need at least 1GB of RAM. These are minimal requirements. Most computers of the last five years have been much more powerful than this.
Excalibur is quite efficient and even gives you ways to control the processor load. It automatically stops processing when it's not doing anything--in any workstation.
ILok2 is also required.
Excalibur will be available on March 23, 2015 beginning at noon PDT (Los Angeles local time). Excalibur is now in the hands of testers who've already used it in music and television projects.
