Overview

No other plugin has the comprehensive ability to manipulate pitch and time like Fault.

Whether used at mixdown to fortify weak tracks or in sound design to totally mangle instruments beyond recognition, Fault's applications are limited only by your imagination.

With over 100 factory presets included – featuring settings from contributing artists like Richard Devine and Scott Kirkland from The Crystal Method – finding creative inspiration with Fault is fun and engaging.

Seamless integration with ROLI’s latest MIDI controller hardware!

Medicine or Mutilation—You Choose!

Fault's schizophrenic personality can take your tracks in any direction you want: make boring tracks sound richer and more exciting, or take pristine tracks to the next level of frequency-modulated mayhem.

ADT (automatic double tracking) effects for vocals, more realistic than most doublers. Modulate an LFO—patched to the stereo Pitch Shifters—with a second LFO to create tape recorder-style vari-speed ADT effects like the Beatles used on their vocals!

Fault is indispensable for hard rock and alt-rock productions, too. Create heavy sub-octave effects on room mics to send drums to the depths of Hell.
