Main features

FAC Bandit is a multiband audio effect that splits the audio signal into three bands of frequencies defined by adjustable crossover points. Each band is processed independently by its own effect processor and the outputs are then recombined to produce the final effect.

Each frequency range is altered with different effects and settings that won't sound the same if applied on the full frequency range. As you have probably realized, FAC Bandit is a wonderful and powerful sound design tool for designers who want to sculpt new personal, exciting and outstanding sounds. Either in a subtle way, without compromising the original tone, or in a more drastic way.

Following the diagram below, the input sound is split into three bands (Low, Mid, High) which are then recombined to the output.

The three band sections provide: an output gain control, a mute/solo toggle and a dynamic fx slot. The crossover, for its part, is available in the second band section. Both the gain and mute/solo parameters can be used as band killer, like in DJ console.

Saturation: Tube-like distortion

Parameters
  • Drive - amount of saturation applied on the pre amplified signal
  • PreGain - pre amplification of the drive section
  • Pre/Post Filter - cutoff of the filter according the model
Models
  • Soft - soft clip before the drive, then post LPF
  • Hard - hard clip before the drive, then post LPF
  • BPF - pre BPF, then soft clip before the drive
  • BELL - pre BELL, then soft clip before the drive

LOFI: Low resolution character of retro vintage samplers

Parameters
  • Rate - down sampling rate. 1: none, 40: resampling SR of 1102hz
  • Bits depth - resolution of each individual sample involved in the resampling process
  • Filter - post LPF. Useful to reduce the artifacts generated by the decimination
Models
  • Classic - classic quantization
  • Dither - classic quantization with dithering noise applied
  • Rizer - advanced quantization, great down to 1 bit depth!
  • Jitter - classic quantization with fixed down sampling jitter

Ring Modulator: Add inharmonic content to your input signal and get great percussion, metallic or bells sounds

Parameters
  • Note - sets the rate (midi note number) of the modulator. Use it as the root scale, great on jamming and getting tuned percussion
  • Waveshape - shape of the modulator waveform: SIN/SQUARE
  • Tone - LPF affecting the modulated signal, useful to reduce the artifacts generated by the process
Models
  • RM 01 - single ring modulator
  • RM 02 - dual ring modulator

As with all FAC products, the interface has a unique sober look and provides a great user experience. The value of each knob can be monitored at any time. The knobs are very responsive, natural and follow a specific curve according to the parameter type.

Preset Management

FAC Bandit also comes with factory presets to provide you a source of inspiration to satisfy your needs in any situation you might require.

The preset button provides common management features: loading, organization, and saving. The left and right arrows allow fast navigation shortcuts among all the presets (factory + user), a short press on the center label provides a detailed list of all the available presets, select the one you want to work with. On the other hand a long press (hold) provides contextual operation. For factory presets it's possible to save the current preset to a user preset, for user presets it's possible to rename, save and delete the current preset.
