Plogue has announced the release of Chipcrusher, an advanced bitcrusher, a speaker simulator and noise machine effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
It’s an audio effect which plays back input audio through a simulation of early lofi digital audio codecs (DAC Encoding), adds grit (Background Noise), and outputs through a selection of speaker and filter impulse responses (Post-Processing).
It can work as a VST/AU/RTAS plug-in for most major sequencing audio programs and supported tracker programs on Windows and OS X.
There is a wide spectrum of results achievable with chipcrusher. Here’s a few use cases:
- Uniquely destroy/mangle a beat, a guitar or any other audio track.
- Play single hits and emulate the sound of old samplers.
- Add ‘accurate dirt’ to chipsounds’s output.
Chipcrusher for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for $39 ex. VAT.
