"For wild effects on tap, there's little to touch Turnado.”
Computer Music. Computer Music is a monthly magazine published by Future plc in the UK. It covers the topic of creating digital music on a computer.

The Ultimate Audio-Mangler

Keep it simple! Turnado comes with 8 knobs, each firing up an effect and varying it with their dial. It invites play and experimentation with one or several effects. Customise 24 effects in expert mode. If you want it even more compact: in Dictator Mode, you can control all 8 effects simultaneously with a single fader.

Remix Digital Audio

Re-interpret existing material

Describing Turnado as a multi-effects processor perhaps doesn't capture the essence of what it's about. You can use reverb and delay in a subtle way - but what makes it very different from a conventional multi-effects unit is the combination of effects types available and its real-time control options.

The GUI is clutter free with bright and clean graphics. Open it up, and you'll instantly understand the concept.

Turnado is rock solid and light on CPU, if you plan to use it in a live performance or, say, in a dozen instances simultaneously.

The World’s Most Controllable Effect

Maximum transparency with as few controls as possible

As a plug-in in the studio or on stage, Turnado will prove as a surprisingly versatile tool while its operation is cast into a bare minimum of controls.

If you’re not an octopus, the "Dictator" is probably a feature of interest: this fader provides a unique way of controlling multiple knobs with just one slide. Here you can set up for each knob, when and how much to be rotated.

Of course you can automate all controls in Turnado. Or, if you’re looking for a more natural approach, remote-control them via MIDI.

Turnado in the Beardytron 5000 mkII

Building Beardyman’s Ultimate Live-Production System

What Beardyman dreamt about doing couldn’t be done: Technology simply couldn’t keep up with his demands. To pull off his sets the way he wanted, he spent six years and $30,000 building a complex live setup: Beardytron 5000 mkII.

For Beardyman, the name of the game is being able to control things like high- and low-pass filtering, build-ups and drops, and muting and unmuting of channels in real-time with just two hands: “Without having Turnado, there would be literally no way for me to do it.”

A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Turnado is deep if you choose to dive deeper

When you open up one of the effects’ edit panels, you quickly begin to realise how powerful Turnado really is. With the ability to tweak five different parameters, the degree of control available is staggering.

Each of these five knobs can be tied to the main-screen knob, which is what gives them the magic! If you want some hands-off automation as well, each slot has two LFOs/step sequencers and an envelope follower that can be used to modulate. These can be assigned to any effect parameter.

Dynamic Signal Flow

The Art of Routing

There are two options when it comes to routing the signal through the effects: going through each in series (from bank 1-8) or Dynamic Signal Flow mode, where it follows the order in which each effect is activated.

Setting up the order of effects is an art in itself – and the ability to swap effects by dragging one onto another allows you to quickly audition how a different order can have a drastic effect on the overall sound.

This can also be handy if, for example, you always want a reverb to come last in a chain regardless of when it's active.
