Multiband Audio Effect
FAC Bandit is a multiband audio effect that splits the audio signal into three bands of frequencies according two 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 to 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.
Saturation: Tube-like distortion
LOFI: Low resolution character of retro vintage samplers
Ring Modulator: Add inharmonic content to your input signal and get great percussion, metallic or bells sounds
Delay: Tempo based delay, provides depth and ambience (In-App Purchase: 3 fxs 9 presets)
Reverb: Recreate the sonic ambience of rooms and spaces (In-App Purchase: 5 fxs 14 presets)

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, saving, importing and exporting. 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 touch (hold) provides contextual operations.

I really REALLY love this plugin. Especially hard saturator on extreme settings, just beautiful distortion. This plugin goes instantly to my TOP 10 best plugins on iOS
Really transforms the original audio source in whatever direction you want. Another great FAC app
One of the apps I have fallen for like really hard is FAC Bandit...
Love it. So nice playing with the high end and muting the bands
Wow this is a really impressive effect. The processing between the separate bands sounds suuuuper clean. This will be my new goto to beef up drums
