Glitch Effects Hardware?

Post by cprescott08 » Thu Nov 19, 2009 6:16 pm

Does anyone know if there is a Glitch (style) Hardware effects unit/pedal available on the market?
I know that there are several Bit crushers that can kind of create the effect..but in my opinion not quite
the same nor necessarily what I'm looking for.
I have also heard of the boutique Glitch Computer pedal..but again it seems more of a
bit crusher/decimator/chaos effect?
I'm looking for something a bit more similar to the retrigger/gater/shuffler style effects
that can be found in the Glitch vst.
So far that closest I've come is a standard digital delay set to a fast repeat.

The Korg MiniKP has a grain shift effect, which takes a tiny slice of the sound and then repeats it very quickly. Is this whatyou are looking for?

(BTW, this was an idea I thought I came up with all on my own back in the day and I wanted to design such a pedal. Then the MiniKP came out and there it was....)

Yeah for the most part that is the basis of the effect I'm looking for.
I'm actually a bit surprised myself as it appears no one has really
attempted such a pedal?
As stated I am aware of numerous pedals/boxes that venture into
some of this territory..though usually they end up being a bit more chaotic
and experimental than I would like.
I'm really hoping for something more precise in cutting up the sound?
I think it would be extremely cool if a company could assimilate some of those Glitch VSt
effects into hardware unit(s).
And with the added ability/features such as adjustable pitch/speed/length/freq/Q
would be Amazing ;)

Not sure if this is more experimental than what you're after but when I think "glitch hardware" I think this.

Thanks for the suggestions. The Boss SL-20 looks interesting though I'm not sure
if I'd be into the preset rhythmic patterns?
The Teaspoon is definitely a possiblity. I do like what it does to the sound..
it is for the most part what I was looking for though it would be nice if they
had a few additional modulation parameters.

You ain't getting a teaspoon anytime soon. The WTPA sampler should be able to do buffer f**k too. You aren't going to get that sound from an SL-20, you need something that has a sampler chip to do grain effects. A shame they don't make a Kaoss knobby box, though I suppose the ESX-1 could be used in that regard.

Yeah I've noticed. Been researching that teaspoon and they are out of production
at the moment according to the site..not sure if that means permanently or temporarily?
Although it appears the more feature laden Teaspoon KINK is available
which is kind of the overall Glitch pedal I was envisioning anyway.
Pretty decent price tag on it as well though seemingly worth it :)

I saw this on youtube a couple months ago and thought it looked kind of cool.

.....i have some things that create and sculpt sound.

Yeah, you have about a dozen or so ravenous people refreshing that page everyday. h**l, I think people buy them just to sell them for close to twice the price on ebay.

Not sure. I just assumed it was an MP3 player or something that he was using to feed audio into the glitch box thing.

I wasn't aware that the WTPA could f**k s**t up in that respect until you said that. I don't wanna plaster the thread up with videos etc but theres a Vimeo clip of some guy running a Public Enemy track into the WTPA, and it's just sick to say the least. Like an 8-bit Teaspoon.

Totally building one, once I finish my Noise Swash.

Apparently they're all sold out. I think you can still buy boards and self source. I got one of the last ones after screwing up my last attempt. Waiting on the new one but the other one I got did work...albeit very distorted; but I was able to try out the granulator effect and it is awesome...not as controllable as the teaspoon though.

Heard lots of bad news about those folktec peoples...

Also, this appears to do the same as the TeaspoonCAS
