Audio Damage has announced the release of an updated version of its audio plugin designed to manipulate audio in exciting new ways.

Completely rewritten to take advantage of advances in DSP since the original was released, Replicant 3 features an all-new, easier-to-understand GUI. The engine now has arbitrary number of steps, from 3 to 16 per measure, and the size control now has multiple size modes, from dotted notes through to nontuplets.

The original stutter slice effect has been joined by new delay, redukt and ringmod slice effects. The Event FX now includes an envelope feature for cross-fading slices, and manual trigger (for touchscreens) and MIDI trigger for is available for full non-sequenced control of the slicing engine. Lastly, the update comes with Audio Damage’s new-style preset manager featuring XML-based cross-platform/format presets.

You can use the built-in sequencer to create custom rhythmic patterns that let you you loop, reverse, and re-slice audio in real-time, while applying delay, filter, panning, ring modulation, and bit-crushing effects.

From dance music to hip hop to experimental to IDM, Replicant is perfect for taking your audio creations to new realms. With its powerful features and intuitive interface, you can create complex rhythmic patterns, glitch effects, and intricate textures.
