Boscomac releases Bit Torsion free distortion effect for Reaktor

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Feb 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Boscomac has announced Bit Torsion, a free distortion effect for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Boscomac Bit Torsion
Boscomac’s Bit Torsion for Reaktor offers “animated distortion”.

As its name suggests, it’s not an emulation of bagpipes but rather an effect of mass destruction of signal. Particularly effective on Drums, I define it as a “Animated distortion.”

“Distortion” because it is here to reduce the bit, the sample rate, add gain, feedback, filtering frequency, clipping, folding, etc. “Animated” because this module has a random sequencer particular: the user chooses the settings, the direction and intensity of modulation that follows data generated randomly. Hmm, what a program!

Bit Torsion is available as a free download (requires full version of Reaktor 5.9). Donations are appreciated.
