Array is an effect for spectral animation. It filters the incoming audio into eight separate bands and allows you to individually pass or mute them in a rhythmical fashion, essentially working as a gate sequencer in the frequency domain. With macro controls for multiple parameters, Array is a quick yet capable tool for all kinds of spectral effects – morphed, stepped, strobed or glitched.
Array displays a live audio waveform on each filter band and allows to operate on it directly, giving you a true “what you see is what you get” workflow. Every element in its user interface is color-coded and features subtle animations, bringing unusual ease of use and interactivity. Plus, all this goodness is rendered right on your Mac’s graphics adapter meaning fast response and no extra load on the main processor, regardless of how new or old your system is.

Array takes a complicated concept and boils it down to a minimalist set of controls. [...] Its tight focus, superlative ease of use and impressive sonic results really can't be faulted – 4/5 stars, Computer Music Magazine (2012)
It works just as well for both extreme or subtle processing, for when you want to re-invent a sound or give it a slightly unnatural, digital vibe. [...] A simple yet well-implemented plugin for creating new ideas and sequences – 9/10, Music Tech Magazine (2012)
