Knobster.org has released Slitch, a tool for manipulation of the audio files, and LO-FI Cinematic Grooves, a free sample pack.
Slitch is a tool for manipulation of the audio files. Any recording it can turn into a set of percussions, glitches, or even scratches.
Plugin based on the principle of separation of the audio file into equal chunks, which have consistently mapped to keys for MIDI-keyboard. Adjusting parameters of Decay and Sustain You can get chunks of varying lengths. In addition, you can adjust the pitch, add some distortion and process sound by LP filter.
Interesting effects can be achieved using the built-in LFO, which can modulate all of the basic parameters. MIDI-automation is available.
Slitch is available as a freeware VST plug-in for Windows PC.
The LO-FI Cinematic Grooves is a collection of looped grooves from old rare movies (Indian, Brazilian, USSR), cartoons and advertisments.
