Interesting info about Fusion FX chips

Postby 2ManyKeys » Wed May 16, 2018 7:04 pm

I did a bit of looking into Wavefront Semiconductor and found what I expected. This company was simply the renamed Alesis Semiconductor. Alesis did a lot of custom IC designs and I had heard about their IC division. So, here's a little more info I found.

Here are a couple of the Wavefront FX chips found in the Fusion. Datasheet downloads as well.

Datasheets for the Insert and Bus Fx chips. Really quite capable little units. Just wish the delays were longer.

it's unfortunate that Alesis didn't give us access to all 8 types of reverb in the bus fx chips (the Digital Reverb Engines). Looks like a pretty nice setup. Quite a bit more flexible than the single Hall, Room, Plate setups in the Fusion.

I find it difficult to get a nice warm (realistic) reverb out of the Fusion. The warmer (darker) options that are on the chip would have been nice.
