DeskFX adds effects to your audio just before the audio is sent to your output device(s). Click the Options button on the Home toolbar to select the output device(s) you wish to use. Playing your audio will send it through DeskFX.
To add an effect, click the effects button you wish to use on the Effects or Masking toolbar. The effect will be shown in a list on the main window of DeskFX. This list is referred to as the effects chain. The Equalizer is always included in the effects chain.
You can adjust an effect in the effects chain by adjusting the parameters or by selecting a Preset from the drop down list. By clicking the small triangular button to the left of the effect name, you can expand or contract the effect to help manage the effects chain.
To apply or not apply all your enabled effects in the effects chain, click the Power button on the Home toolbar to start or stop the effects. Each effect can be individually applied or not applied by clicking the Enable/Disable button on the top right side of each effect.
You can save an effect chain with all its settings by clicking the Save button on the Home toolbar. You can load a previously saved effect chain by clicking the Load button or delete the current effects chain by clicking the Clear button.
