FKFX are a new software venture, with some serious pedigree in the audio plug-ins market and an interesting business model. Essentially they're giving away plug-ins for free, but hope to secure funding via Patreon by offering their supporters exclusive plug-ins, presets and updates.
First, a bit about the company. FKFX is a two-man show, comprising Nicolas Lacoumette (formerly of Devine Machine) and Laurent De Soras (ex-Ohm Force developer). Their debut plug-in is called Obvious Filter, a multi-mode filter plug-in with powerful modulation abilities. It's capable, say FKFX, of “turning any input into a rhythmical sequence, using a morphing filter sequencer”. There's a choice of 10 filters on offer, including two- and four-pole high-pass, low-pass, band-pass, and band-reject types, these being modulatable by one of the plug-in's 39 LFOs. Morphing, randomising and stuttering effects add to its mangling potential, and it comes with a massive 128 presets to get you started.
