MixMeister Express
Native Instruments Traktor Scratch Pro 2

Reverb occurs naturally when a sound is created in an enclosed space, and reflects from the walls. This effect can be created digitally, and is most noticeable when a sound cuts out suddenly and then continues to echo, slowly getting quieter.

2.Has a gate effect

A gate is similar to a compressor. However, rather than attenuating signals which are above a certain value, it attenuates weak signals. This can be used eg. to reduce unwanted background noise.

3.Has a flanger effect

4.Has a ping pong delay
