Love the trigger step function - you can get each trigger to make the FX move just a bit, then stop. Put that on drums, gtr, vocals etc - just wow.
Here is a great video, second half has really useful examples (he even does stutter FX with the Flanger, lol):
Classic FX modeled:
Boss (Roland) CE-1 chorus (I prefer this one over Dim D actually, great for bass too as it doesn't loose the bottom end)
Phasers modeled after Eventide and MXR.
Flanger another Eventide, boy it sounds smoooooth.
This must give Arturia sleepless nights, their recent $149 bundle sounds fine but not the same playground as Waves Kaleidoscopes lets you do all kinds of new cool ways to modulate.
Really smart to also offer through mode, i.e. FX on one side dry on the other. Classic guitar trick, but maybe chorus on L and phaser on R?
Or set it to a smooth random to just add that analog vibe to stale VST patches - golden!
Or set it to trigger mode but turn up threshold so it doesn't trigger, then automate the movement - killer drop and sweeps right there.
Then trow this thing in the free Waves Rack for simple FX chaining and multiband, or make your own 8x FX parallel Kaleidoscopes setup. You can also run a wet reverb or delay with Kaleidoscopes after, then adjust the Wet/Dry of the Waves Rack (2-ch parallel split mode) - fast and simple.Or distort the Mid, and Kaleidoscopes modulation on the Reverb/Delay sides, OK gotta stop, this just got really crazy fun!
And for $39 bucks, I mean... Well done Waves
