Picture a -Filter Bank- with 36 different Filter types and an XY panel which can also be recorded and played back in several different ways. Yes...that is already very cool, however, picture in your mind that you can also use it in combination with 2 other FX, which also have their own XY pad and this is all then polished off with a flexible Stereo Delay!

Imagine using the Lo-Fi effect combined with a Comb Filter and an analog modeled filter, and this all with each its own XY pad and this all topped off by the Stereo Delay. :o

Indeed, thinking out of the box, this is what the - Rob Papen - brand loves to do and of course, this is the case with XY-Transfer And If you are familiar with the instruments, you know the XY panel for sure. It is a very creative tool for adding dynamic changes to a sound.

Well, now you can use our exciting XY panel in combination with a cool range of effects!
The cool thing about XY-Transfer is that each 'BLOCK' which holds one of the FX, also has its own XY field. So very complex effect types are possible which can lead to some unheard and creative effects!

The available Block effects are: - Filter Bank - | - Comb Filter - | - Shaper - | - Room - and - Gater -.
These effects can be combined in these blocks and the - Stereo Delay- can also be placed in different combinations within these 3 blocks.

So, if you are looking for a - Filter Bank ' and beyond... XY-Transfer will transfer your audio into something creatively new and unheard.


  • XY-Transfer is a modular FX unit, which uses 3 blocks with selectable FX and a Stereo Delay to create its sound. 
  • By changing the Path you can rearrange the audio routing of the 3 blocks and the Stereo Delay.
  • PC and Mac. 64bit AU/VST/AAX
  • 200+ presets

Each block has its own XY controller screen, so you can use the mouse to control all of XY-Transfer's controls by moving the red dot around the pad.
It is also possible to record paths and use the XY pad as a programmable two-dimensional LFO.

Block Path:
You can determine how the blocks and delays are arranged via the PATH menu.
Delay> B1 > B2 > B3
B1 > Delay > B2 > B3
B1 > B2 > Delay > B3
B1 > B2 > B3 > Delay
Delay > Parallel
Parallel > Delay

Block controls:
Commands: copy, paste, swap, load, and save the blocks to disk.

Block Effects:

The -Filter Bank - of XY-Transfer holds up to 36 Filter types, which already makes it a great tool to use on your audio.
For creating more of an edge, we have even added a Pre-Filter distortion control and Stereo Spread.
The XY allows you to control the Filter in a dynamic way, being either 'live' by changing the dot, or automated by using a recorded movement.
XY-Transfer is pre-installed with a dedicated Filter bank folder, with many presets that use only 1 block and this extremely versatile - Filter -.
You can select Low Pass (LP), High Pass (HP), Band Pass (BP) and Notch Filter with different slopes (from 6db to 36db), plus we also have included vocal and EQ Filters.
Low Pass Filter (LP)
High Pass Filter (HP)
Band Pass Filter (BP)
Notch Filter
For the 12 and 24dB Filters, there are 3 types, which have different tonal characters.
The Z Filters are zero-delay analog-modeled Filters.
Vowel Filter
Formant 1
Formant 2
Low Shelf
High Shelf
Peak Shelf
Additional Filter controls are, Pre-Distort, and Stereo Spread

A Comb Filter is a very short delay that either enhances or reduces the frequency depending on the comb Filter frequency.
In the XY section, you can directly modulate the Comb Filter Frequency and Feed and Dampening.
The Comb Filter works in positive or negative modes depending on the Comb Type selected.
Additional Comb controls are, Stereo Spread and Random.

With this effect, you can 'shape' the input using several different types of modulation or another audio changing effect.
The available effects are: Ring Modulation, Frequency Modulation, Phase Modulation, Amplitude Modulation and a Lo-Fi effect.

The Room effect is a room simulator, adding depth to the sound and is taken from the RP-VERB 2 algorithm.
We selected this Room sound since it is very interesting to use, and when used in combination with the XY pad you can sculpt some very creative effect sounds.
A special feature is the "Mod" control that modulates the room so that it starts to sound very wild/untamed.

The Gater effect changes the volume of the left or right signal using a 16 steps sequencer to alter the volume of the sound to give a 'Trance Gate' type effect. Basically, it is a sequencer-controlled audio gate.

Stereo Delay
Tape-based delay, which can be placed anywhere in the signal path.

Volume Follower which can be used as a modulation source, and also to trigger things.

Modulation Matrix
4 slot Modulation Matrix, so that all the parameters of XY-Transfer can be altered by a wide range of modulation source.
