The suite contains lots of effects (delay, modulation, signal processing, filters, equalizers, dynamics, distortion and mastering effects), instruments (SF2 player, organ simulator and a monophonic synthesizer) and tools (analyzer, mono/stereo tools, crossovers). Calf Studio Gear aims for a professional audience.

  • /usr/[local]/share/doc/calf (depending on your installation path) contains a HTML manual on how to use the plug-ins user interface

You can’t perform that action at this time.
