The FireworX is a multi-effects processor which includes, along with conventional effects like delay, panner/tremolo, chorus/flanger and pitcher, non conventional effects like vocoder, ring-modulator, synth and digital cruncher. The resulting effect processes are not conventional (although the box will do those just as well.)

Each of the effect blocks are configured as "stand-alone" boxes and can be controlled as such. The FireworX provides the possibility to route the effect blocks in any order in an 8x8 grid/matrix (until the limit of the DSP is reached.) Additionally, almost any of the effect parameters can be modified in the modifier section, using eight external controllers (MIDI) and ten internal modifiers such as LFOs, ADSR envelopes, and more.

The FireworX is equipped with 24-bit analog to digital and digital to analog converters, and aside from audio connectors, provides AES/EBU, S/PDIF, Toslink and ADAT digital input and output. The wealth of I/O options can be used in several unique ways. The ADAT interface allows for bringing in two tracks from an ADAT, and sending the processed tracks out to a different pair of ADAT tracks. Or, if one is using the analog I/O's, the digital I/O's can be used to simultaneously output the source audio from any place in the process chain, run it through a hardware processor, and return it to any place in the matrix. This version comes with the Wordclock input as standard.

Any effect block can be placed anywhere in the 8x8 routing grid. Left/Right connectivity can be set up separately for both input and output in each block
More than 35 different algorithms, including ring modulator, digital cruncher, sweeping filters, formant filters, chaos noise generation and many more
Nine external and eleven internal modifiers that can be tied to numerous parameters. Up to twenty connections can be made simultaneously
Internal modifiers include ADSR's, LFO's, envelope detectors, a pitch detector and more
Insert Loop
Enables inserting any other effects processor into the routing of the FireworX. The loop can be analog or digital
All tempo based parameters can be connected to the global tempo. The global tempo can be tapped, dialed, or MIDI clock based
True 24-bit resolution A/D and D/A converters
Balanced analog input and output on XLR connectors
Large backlit LCD displays multiple related parameters at once for easy programming and operation
