Glitchmachines has launched Cataract, a Segment Multiplexer plug-in geared toward electronic music production and experimental sound design.

Cataract features an arsenal of sample scanners with integrated modulation sequencers and morphing functions. This makes it possible to construct architecturally complex patterns ranging from nuanced percussive articulations to intricate particle sound effects and all out generative hyper glitch chaos.

Infinitely transform your audio files with Cataract’s extensive randomization and modulation options. Warp pitched samples into parallax melodies or redistribute loop segments into generative polyrhythms. Whether you are sculpting articulate percussion patterns for an electronic music EP or designing high- tech cyborg effects for a sci-fi game, Cataract will give your projects a unique cutting-edge twist.
