The Mysterizer from FXpansion was included and locked to Steinberg Cubase, but this version is unlocked to be used in any VST host. The Mysterizer is a multi-effect plug-in with a unique hands-on user interface. It can be used as an insert effect or a send effect, and allows you to choose between eight different effects. For each effect, you can control two parameters by clicking and dragging in the display, allowing for continuous real-time effect manipulation, subtle sweeping changes or weird, wild mutations.
Mysterizer starts with a fairly straightforward choice of effects (ring modulation, three types of delay, three types of filter, plus distortion), but it’s the control method that turns it into a tour de force — the X-Y mouse control surface automates two parameters with Newtonian ballistics. If you want to smooth out the jerkiness of your mouse movements, use a slower Rate, while the Overshoot controls the amount of ‘bounciness’ — with the benefit of automation you can add a lot of human feel to a song after some practice.
