What is reFX Nexus?

reFX Nexus is a virtual instrument that works as a plugin in your DAW (digital audio workstation). It comes with over 3,000 presets that cover various styles and genres, from drums and basses to pads and plucks. You can also expand your sound library with hundreds of expansions that add new sounds and features to Nexus. Some of the expansions include Italo Disco, Drill, Tropical House, Lo-fi, Future Rave, Vintage Synths, and more.

Nexus has a simple and intuitive interface that lets you browse, tweak, and layer sounds with ease. You can also use the advanced librarian to organize your presets by folders, categories, tags, favorites, and bookmarks. You can preview sounds instantly with the search-while-you-type feature and filter by category and tags. You can also access the history function to go back and forth between your selections.

One of the most powerful features of Nexus is the arpeggiator, which allows you to create complex rhythmic patterns and melodies with a few clicks. You can access up to 16 layer arpeggiators, each with its own settings and options. You can also edit the pattern length, step size, swing, velocity, gate, shuffle, and more. You can even zoom in and out of the pattern and follow the playback with the interactive overview.

Nexus also has a flexible routing system that lets you see and edit the signal flow of each layer and effect. You can enable or disable entire layers or individual oscillators and effects with one click. You can also drag and drop effects to change their order or assign them to different layers. You can also use the four macro controls and 24 modulation slots to easily control and automate various parameters.
