Shuriken releases CopyShop2
Shuriken has released CopyShop2, a buffer chopping / FSU effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
This my friend is a what you would call a FSU VST, all it does is chopping up buffers and plays them back. of-course you can choose the length of the piece of audio played back and when to apply it. New for version 2 is a pitch control, and boy can that make fun noises
Blargh its hard to explain what it does, throw it into your DAW feed it some audio and press the
little button. Then tweak the big knob. then press the button again, that’s how it works and what it
does pretty simple.
CopyShop2 also has some shortcuts to set the played back pieces to rhythmically valid values. You won’t find these in the GUI but they can be automated.
CopyShop2 is available as a freeware plug-in for Windows and Mac (except for when you’re Timbaland). Donations are appreciated.
