    Permut8, Stutter Edit, PitchFunk, Spectrum Worx, Shaperbox, Byome, SpecOps, Gross Beat, GlitchBitch and TapeStop.
    I use them, well for multi fxs. On anything a bit boring really.
    Well tbh I use them all a lot less lately. I can do more versatile things using "racks" in bitwig. Nothing keeping from incorporating any of those inside them, but it'll give me a lot more modulation options. If I'm really hot I go for the grid fx. That's on good days.

    Shoutout to a fellow NYC bro.
    We have a lot of cool options for multifx as well. AU only too.
    https://www.sinevibes.com/plugins/
    They are tiny in file size and very very cpu efficient, I would use them way more but the preset menus only appear in Logic and the plugins have many possible complex functions so starting from an initialized preset feels like taking 3 steps back.

    Zebrify. It's as close to perfect without actually being Reaktor.

    Kilohearts - Multipass : utterly amazing plugin if you ask me, very versatile, tons of possibilities regarding
    multi fx preset programming.

    This is going to change my beats. Like playing the instrument, with the Multi FX on and changing Presets.

    Ableton macros really, but I also like Guitar Rig, plenty of interesting chains with wacky modulations to be had + a decent convolver. Sounds really crunchy as well, it's not exactly hi-fi (and for special FX that's a good thing!).

    Man, this has always eluded me, need to try to "get" it eventually, and I'm sure I will because Zebra is a class synth.

    Limits are always boring

    So my Fav is Cherry Audio Voltage Modular . (I believe ,more modulation and modules are not possible ..... Thanks to the integrated VST host everything else becomes an effect or instrument as well .

    So building your own Multi FX becomes possible with unlimited Modulations sources ...
    Just to go on It's so crazy that I can use for example Shapebox as a Modulation source for other effects .)

    MXXX would be second. (I love just how it works and the GUI .... I know, many don't like it, but still I don't get them XD)

    I personally don't use MultiFX plugins cause haven't found one that i really like (remember using the Tornado of Sugarbytes, for example, isn't bad at all although not my thing, i'm more of a 'stomp' guy than a 'pedalboardist' :winker:).

    what i do is load the Blackcat Patchwork (or similar) and insert into it whatever fx plug to makin it sort of a MultiFX plugin/chain depending the chanel or buss where i'm workin on. for old school mods like chorus etc my favs are Mercuriall Chorus Pedal, it has a stereo function ideal for doublin/spreadin guitar or anything mono you put on it, Martinic Scanner Vibrator is very cool for vintage vibrato/chorus. For more tremolos the Blackvibe from AO with the amp turned off is really lovely (check out other FX from AO like some fuzzes and stomps they put out and they sound sick). From the TC Electronic Vintage Pedal Bundle the phaser "sounds like a real life phaser stompbox to me!" and is pretty cool on guitar and asume in other sources too. For granular delay and weird*ss mambos i go to Permut8, absolutely love it. Filterbank from Tone2 works great for that filtering wakiness and has cool presets ready to go. The Abuser from Audiority is mindblowing when it comes to destruction/distortion, agggHH!!! The new Guit Rig 6 comes with all the effects of their NI FX series and they all sound amazing but is huge on CPU resources (in fact i can barely load it in my DAW) plus The Vernon Reid presets are indescribable awesome. And finally but not least, Spin from GG Audio is like a rotary speak sim but with extra features (convo cabs, rooms/amb, etc) that use a lot.
    Maybe try to make your own customized FXchain with your prefered FX plugs in one instance of a patchwork like the BC or similar and see how it works for you!
    Hope contribute something to this thread, if not...:mad: whocares, right? Cheers!!
