ALM Busy Circuits MFX
Save space while maximizing your sound design opportunities with MFX by ALM Busy Circuits, a stereo multi-effects processor packed with ALM's favorite effects throughout the decades. Featuring tonal shaping, modulation, and spatializing effects, the MFX includes 14 individual effects with unique parameters and sonic characteristics that can process either mono or stereo inputs and even synchronize to an external clock with a dedicated input. Much like their famed and fan favorite Pamela's NEW Workout, navigating the MFX is easy and snappy with a program push encoder to dial in each parameter via the stylish OLED screen—there's even a back button for simplified page navigation!
MFX's effects are half made-up of echoes and reverbs including tape, PCM, and multi-tap as well as plates, rooms, and atmospheric spaces, respectively. These offer loads of timbres and stereo imaging for creating dark and moody spaces to bright and ethereal ones, while the other half of the effects introduces more aggressive sculpting of transient shaping, distortion, and even compression. For more bite and grit, the MFX features a bit-corrupter for mimicking faulty digital audio equipment as well as an FM/RM effect for creating gnarly and bell-like tones. MFX even covers widening through its use of modulating panning as well as ensemble/chorus effects to push your signals from lush and roomy to frantic and swirling.
All of MFX's parameters can be modulated externally via the three assignable CV inputs, and further CV control can be implemented over expansion with ALM's AXON-1. Try out some of the factory presets to get a feel and save your own for recall throughout your performance or sound design process. With USB-C functionality on the back to update the firmware down the line, the MFX from ALM is your one-stop-shop for maximal effects processing in a minimal module space.

ALM's MFX is one of the most powerful and downright fun multi-FX modules in the Eurorack modular synthesizer format. Packing high-quality, studio-grade effects into a compact 6HP package, it's a sure way to add tons of colorful processing options into your modular system.
Adapting classic studio effects into playable algorithms, you'll get everything from tape delay, multi-tap delay, lush digital reverb, ring modulation, frequency shifting, bitcrushing, and much more: all with an excellent sound and a fun, playable, intuitive interface.
Inspired by our favourite classic hardware effects processors, the MFX incorporates DSP technologies from the dawn of digital effects in the 70s to the present day. This combines with ALM character and uniqueness to form a highly useful, fun and practical Eurorack effects module.
The MFX user interface is designed to be familiar, quick and easy to use. Each program contains a wide range of controllable parameters both directly editable or freely assigned to CV or clocked control. Additionally, each program includes factory presets as well as the ability to store and recall user presets. All states are preserved across power cycles.
