waveTracing has recently released a new audio plugin designed to bring you a different kind of bitcrusher. The DQ5010 dynamic quantizer delivers gritty drums and saturated bass.

The DQ5010 can be seen as a bitcrusher, but with a very distinctive behavior and sound due to its internal floating-point architecture.

Unlike classic bitcrushers where low level signals tend to be buried in noise or distortion while high level ones remain comparatively unaffected, this architecture does preserve the full dynamic of the signal and affects every dynamic part of the signal evenly. The artifacts this produces are quite different and unique compared to any existing plugin or hardware device.

Available in VST3 and AU plugin formats for Windows and Mac, DQ5010 is priced 20 EUR.
