Shuriken has announced the release of BitTest, a free bitcrusher effect plug-in for Mac.

BitTest is a sweet little bitcrusher VST, it converts your data to 8 bits, then you can turn the bit’s off (the top row) or invert them (the bottom row) individually. That is you can individually flip and invert the bits.

Rusty Trombone Erectifier

Rusty Trombone has released Erectifier, a freeware doubler/phaser effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

A little while ago, we, Rusty Trombone of very little fame discussed how to get our music better (specifically the singing) and also how to get more ppl to notice us. So we commissioned this little VST from world famous VST developer, to give away for free, as marketing. Yeah, baby, for free, as marketing. Hopefully this will be as awesome for us as it is for you. Let us warn you though, we seldom read manuals, and we’ve never written anything like this. Anyways if you could listen a little to our music, tip a few friends of our music, be our friend at myspace, that would be awesome. please, we are begging, our knees are bleeding. puhlease.

Erectifier features

  • Doubler/phaser effect designed to widen and phatten.
  • LFO controls echo (length and speed controls).
  • Filter: LowPass, HighPass or Allpass + cut Hz.
  • Distortion effect.
  • Ampily signal control.
  • On/off for each signal.
  • Dry/through to mix the effect.

Erectifier is available as a freeware effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Shuriken 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.

Shuriken Kerrstinn v1.2

Kerrstinn, Weapon of Break Construction, is a great little plug-in to slice and rearrange your loops in a random but controllable way.

Updated in v1.2

  • Bugfixes (stability greately improved)
  • New GUI
  • New generators
  • Slightly modified license

Now about that modified license?…

If you are Timbaland or have been associated with him, you may NOT use this plugin. If you do anyway you give me (Johan Larsby) all your intellectual property. This clause may be changed for a hefty sum of money, contact me for further information.

Ahh…. Neat!
