Audio Damage has updated Automaton, a cellular automata effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Automaton is a unique look at buffer effects, allowing you to experiment with artificial life within your DAW.

With four separate effects (Stutter, Modulate, Bitcrush, and Replicate) driven by a cellular automata sequencer, Automaton is capable of adding subtle seemingly random fills and “humanizing” effects, but if you like, you can crank the sequencer up to eleven, and watch as your DAW becomes a petri dish while Automaton makes complete hay of the track you’ve inserted it to.

Changes in Automaton v1.1

  • Many minor bug fixes.
  • All versions are now 32- and 64-bit compatible.

Automaton for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $49 USD. The update is free for existing users.
