Meatscience releases Bitsmacker
Meatscience has released Bitsmacker, a free distortion effect plug-in for Mac.
The Bitsmacker is digital distortion swiss army knife for adding that certain digital crustiness to your pristine audio signal. Can simulate vintage samplers, classic video game systems, and other lo-fi paraphenalia. At extreme settings, it warps your audio with power you can’t get from a stomp box or full stack.
- Sample rate reduction from 50 to 44100 hz.
- Bit depth range from 0.01 to 32 bit.
- Parametric EQ on Input.
- Parametric EQ on Output.
- Drive adjustment for boost.
- All values continuously variable, no large steps between values.
- Works in any Audio Unit host (Garage Band, Logic, Ableton, etc etc).
Bitsmacker is available as a freeware AudioUnit effect plug-in for Mac OS/X.
