After Imagé is an interactive, state of the art echo and reverb plugin engine... Relentlessly defended with honor by a fox called Sox!
Play while you create!
Your centre Joystick is a powerful XY pad that allows you to rapidly morph between the built in Echo and Space engines at the core of the plugin, assisting you in creating your perfect After Image.
If you're looking for pure untouched Echo then slide hard to the left, or if it's an inspiring reverb Space you're after then slide hard to the right. Slide up or slide down to open or focus the stereo image, or leap into the abyss by exploring the possiblities between the extremes.
All the while, you'll stay guided by a purple visualizer that reacts to the dynamics and breadth of the sound you create.
Lets dive deeper!
The Echo section was designed to give you maximum sonic flexibility without overwhelming you with uneccessary controls. We delved deep to bring you a world of Echo, anything from pure slapback delays to rich analog echoes, the choice is yours!
Take control of 2 curved sliders to adjust the Echo time of your left and right channels independently. Explore and you'll be amazed how much can be achieved with these 2 sliders alone.
Activate the Link button to connect both Timer Sliders to each other. A super smart way to keep the Echo times of both your L & R channels in line.
Illuminate the BPM button to sync your echo times to the pulse of your beat, or deactivate to explore the realm of chilled out off-beat delays.
Your super fast way to traverse the deep echo engine within. Choose from an abundance of different styles that each house various feedback and texture configurations under the hood.

After Image has made a home for this so that you can continue to get the same classic analog style filters to shape and craft your sound.
