Virtual Creations has released version 2.1 of Elite Reducer, a free bit/samplerate reducer effect plugin for Windows and Mac.
This effect is a very compact bit/samplerate-reducer with pre- and after cutoff filters. It gives you the ability to let rhythms sound more creaking and tonal sound more electronical.
Artists with a focus on Electro/Techno use reducers to get the unique “LoFi”-sound for the productions.
Version 2.1 now comes with 3 new interpolation algorithms, lp/hp switches, 3×3 types of reduction and improvements.
