Audio Damage has released Replicant, a delay-based effect in the “beat slicer/looper” vein, with some tricks of its own that separate it from the herd.

Audio Damage Replicant

From a simple delay or panning effect, on up to massive random beat mangling, Replicant is a capable plugin well in line with today’s modern electronic music styles. Stuttering buffers and filter drops are easy to program, and the comprehensive randomization features give it a mind of its own, if so desired.

Replicant features

  • Tempo-based delay and looping effects, from 1/128th note to an entire measure
  • Six independant randomization controls, for subtle changes or extreme aleatoric madness, including a global randomize button
  • Our unique “Hold” feature, to store a random sequence you like
  • Resonant low-pass and high-pass filters that change over time
  • Pan position that changes over time
  • Two separate direction modes, for entire events or individual repeats, with randomization
  • Full MIDI Learn for hardware control of every parameter. (VST only; handled by host in AU version)

Replicant for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $49 USD.

As with all AD products there is no demo version available (they offer a 30-day “not happy? get 100% refund” policy), so go check the audio demos to see what Replicant sounds like.

For 49 dollars you can’t really go wrong though, especially if you like FSU plug-ins like Glitch and Livecut.
