de la Mancha releases black box slight disorder VST
Like a true black box, you can’t really see what’s going on the inside of it.
de la Mancha explains:
the black box slight disorder was found by pawn shop owner, Jesus “Buffa” Martinez, in the wreckage of a secret experimental gyrocopter that crashed landed in Times Square, New York on Friday 8th January, 1969. Buffa sold it on to an anonymous collector, thought to be a wealthy rock star in a band-du-jour and it has since been stolen, smuggled in and out of all 17 continents, used as a door stop, an assault weapon, integrated into the Soyuz Space Station, survived 2 assasination attempts and came 3rd in last years Big Brother. Although several theories have been put forward, no-one knows exactly how it works. Teams of scientists, engineers, conspiracy theorists and reiki masters have all failed to gain entry to this enigmatic box of tricks. What is known is that it will take an audio input and spit out a modified signal, seemingly using a system of things and other stuff that make you go mmmmmmm.
According to de la Mancha, this rythmic, choppy, buffered and tempo sync output is especially pleasing on drums, but works for most instruments and vocals too.
Its only control is the LED, which you can change to get different effects (click and drag up/down).
