NAMM 2010: Behringer VIRTUALIZER 3D FX2000 Effects Processor

Published: Thu January 14, 2010  News Feed

Get even more mind-expanding power for your keyboard, bass, guitar or vocals with the VIRTUALIZER PRO 3D FX2000 Effects Processor. This amazing rack unit has 71 incredible new algorithms, including true studio-grade stereo and 3D effects that will add a head-spinning new dimension to your sound, both live and in the studio.
The Behringer FX2000 employs BEHRINGER RSM (Real Sound Modeling) technology to simulate acoustic environments with stunning accuracy. Effects options include powerful modulation, amp simulation, distortion and special effects, as well as effective dynamic and psychoacoustics processing. Performance is further enhanced through user-addressable high and low EQ and wave-adaptive VIRTUAL ROOM reverb algorithms.

Reverbs & Delays

Because it is one of the most desired effects, the Behringer FX2000 provides 12 different reverb programs, so you always have the ideal reverb for your live performance or studio needs.

Reverbs include:

Specialty reverbs include:
• GATED REVERB – reverb is synthetically
turned off after a predetermined
amount of time
• REVERSE REVERB – reverb envelope is
reversed—it slowly gets louder

Delays include:
• STEREO DELAY – delay is processed
across the entire stereo image
• TAPE ECHO – simulates classic tape
echo devices, pre-dating the advent of
digital delays
• PING PONG – delay signal is “bounced”
from left to right at an adjustable tempo

Much More than Just Reverb and Delay

The FX2000 has some of the best-sounding reverb and delay programs, but that’s not all. It also provides excellent modulation effects (such as chorus, flanger and phaser), including special variations like musical pitch shifter, tremolo and even a rotary speaker simulation.

Modulation and Pitch Shifter FX:
• STEREO FLANGER (originally generated by
playing back two synchronized “reel to reel” tape
recorders with a finger rubbing on the flange of
one of the take-up reels)
• VINTAGE FLANGER simulates a guitar fl anger
stomp box
• JET STREAM FLANGER sounds like a classic
analog flanger
• STEREO CHORUS (combines a slightly detuned
signal with the original)
• ANALOG CHORUS simulates a guitar chorus
stomp box
• VINTAGE CHORUS imitates a classic analog
studio chorus
• ULTRA CHORUS creates the sound of an eight person
• STEREO PHASER (combines a second, phaseshifted
signal to the original)
• VINTAGE PHASER represents a guitar phaser
stomp box
• DUAL PHASER processes the left and right
channels separately
• ROTARY (simulation of the rotating speakers
typically used on an organ) – Slow or Fast
• PITCH SHIFTER (changes the pitch of the original
signal) – can be used to create harmonies with
the original signal or replace it entirely with the
altered pitch. Choices include stereo, two and
three vocal pitch shifter
• VIBRATO – the peak frequency of the tone is
periodically and uniformly changed
(quickly or slowly)
• TREMOLO (common vintage guitar amplifier
effect) – a fast or slow periodic variation
in volume
• AUTO PANNING – signal is automatically sent
from one side of the stereo image to the other,
either once or multiple times

Dynamic FX:
• COMPRESSOR – reduces the dynamic
range of the signal, maintains
consistent signal level and thus avoids
distortion associated with excessive
input levels
• EXPANDER – effectively broadens the
dynamic range of source signals while
reducing background noise
• GATED REVERB – helps reduce
background clutter by turning reverb
off below a predetermined threshold
level. Particularly effective on drum
mics and vocals
• ANA. KOMPR/LIM. — similar to
COMPRESSOR but with Limiting
• ULTRAMIZER – analyses incoming
signal and automatically applies
compression across two independent
frequency bands
• DENOISER – eliminates or reduces
noise and other interference
• DE-ESSER – reduces or removes
sibilance (Ssss sound) from signal
• WAVE DESIGNER – allows you to
influence the envelope by adjusting
Attack and Release of the signal
Psychoacoustic FX:
• EXCITER – adds artificially generated
overtones to the original signal,
increasing presence and perceived
loudness without significant increase in
signal level
• ENHANCER – functions much like a
dynamic pitch equalizer
• ULTRA BASS – sub-harmonic processor
combined with bass exciter and limiter
• STEREO IMAGER – divides the signal
into middle and side signals, allowing
individual signals to be amplif ed when
desired and placed on the stereo image
• ULTRA WIDE – creates a broader
stereo image
• BINAURALIZER – also creates a broader
stereo image and compensates for
crosstalk between both speakers

Filter/EQ FX:
• AUTO FILTER – influences the frequency
response of a signal. Two filters
are included: low pass allows low
frequencies to pass and suppresses
high frequency content; high pass does
the exact opposite
• LFO FILTER - Controls the rate of
oscillation effects
• PARAMETRIC EQ – allows you to
control the bandwidth, frequency and
amplitude of a signal
• GRAPHIC EQ – the sound spectrum
is divided into eight (8) adjacent
frequency bands, which can be cut or
boosted, bandwidth is predetermined

Distortion FX and Amp Simulations

The FX2000 is also equipped with distortion, amplifier and speaker simulation including VOCAL DISTORTION, TUBE DISTORTION, GUITAR AMP, TRI FUZZ, SPEAKER SIMULATION, RING MODULATOR and LO-FI.

Special FX:
• VINYLIZER – adds clicks and/or noise
to the signal, reminiscent of old vinyl
records and tape machines
• SAMPLER – allows you to record and
playback up to five (5) seconds of
program material
• VOCODER – allows the input signal
to modulate another signal (usually
a synthesizer sound), creating the
familiar “talking synthesizer” effect
• VOICE CANCELER – removes mono
vocal parts from stereo recordings for
“instant Karaoke”
• RESONATOR – simulates and
oscillating system that amplifies a
specific frequency

Our FX Combinations Go to 11

Sometimes you want to add a little (or a lot) of color to your reverb and delay patches. The FX2000 allows you to layer modulation effects like chorus, flanger, pitch or tremolo with your reverb or delay selections.

FX Combinations include:
• Chorus & Reverb
• Flanger & Reverb
• Leslie & Reverb
• Pitch & Reverb
• Delay & Reverb
• Tremolo & Reverb
• Phaser & Reverb
• Chorus & Delay
• Flanger & Delay
• Pitch & Delay
• Tremolo & Delay


With its extremely powerful processing capability and versatile array of features, the FX2000 will become the busiest tool in your audio arsenal.
