Igor Vasiliev of Motion Soundscape has announced an update to the GlitchScaper rhythm and glitch machine for iOS and macOS.

Version 1.1 comes with a new “Stream” mode for generators, added control of generators’ reverb space and reflections, presets groups, and more.

GlitchScaper is a rhythm machine with six sound generators, each controlled by a two-layer cycle sequencer, designed to easily create glitchy patterns and scapes.

Changes in GlitchScaper v1.1

  • “Stream” mode for generators (in section “Generator – Tone”) allows you to use the app as a 6-channel gated effect. In this mode the generator uses a direct input stream as a signal source. It does not use the loop recorder and is similar to how gated effects work. The “Input” mode has been renamed to “Loop”.
  • “Space: On, Continue, Off” button has been added in the “Output” section to control the common reverb space and reverb reflections of each generator. It allows you to turn off the overall reverb space and reverb reflections of the generators, for use of external reverb/spatial effects as needed. It also allows you to make reverb tails continue after the sequencer stops.
  • Create groups of presets, allowing for organizing the list of presets more conveniently. You can create groups, move presets between groups and merge them. The “Favorites” group is created automatically when you make a preset a favorite. The “Factory” group contains all factory presets, and can be hidden in the settings.
  • Export and import presets and groups. You can save a preset or group to an external file, then import it into the app on another device.
  • “Solo” button has been added for all generators.
  • Several new factory presets added.
  • Improved work of generators in loop recording mode (the “Loop” mode).
  • Sequencer control parameters exposed as MIDI and external parameters of Audio unit.
  • Added a detailed description of the new modes to the built-in description of the app. Also available as a PDF file.

Available for iOS as a standalone app and AUv3 plugin, GlitchScaper is available in the App Store for $15.99 USD.
