Gotharman also makes a realtime time stretcher that could do grain shifting, but at quite a price...

It's not really cost-effective if you are only going to use it for this (glitch) purpose, but a modular-level Eventide with sampling engine, e.g., DSP7500, Orville, H7600, and/or H8000-series, would work very well for this (among other things) since you would be able to program the glitch effects you wanted, with the control and timbral shaping you desired.

All manner of stutters, slicing, drops, reverses, buffer overruns, reorders, reclocks, DC-transients, aliasing, quantizing, bit meddling, and so on can be achieved.


cheers,

The Eventides are definitely awesome (the h8000 is on my wish list for my little home setup) but if you have that much cash to spend and wanted to spend it for glitchery, you'd probably be better off going with a Kyma system or modular or something like that instead, no?

Though ideally you should get the Eventide AND the modular AND the kyma system and be in sound design heaven! :)
.....i have some things that create and sculpt sound.

An Eventide of the ones I mentioned (and a couple I didn't) are fully modular - you can create your own algorithms from scratch. Other than writing your own plug-in that would run on a CPU, I can't imagine an equivalent environment within which to realize an effects processing idea.

A Kyma system would also work, I am sure, but given the feedback I have received from other users, the learning curve is much more steep, and the time-to-implement would likely be longer.

Ian

Nobody is talking about bitcrushing, we are talking about buffer f**k.

I'm going to blunder into this thread like a buffoon and shout "DBLUE GLITCH VST" with the full understanding you want to talk about expensive hardware and I'm talking about free software. This will probably silence the room and everyone will stare until I back out ungracefully, so, cya...

The problem with Glitch is it's hard to make it sound like you didn't just run everything through it. Especially that tapestop effect. Subtle use + automation is best. I've been experimenting with doing live buffer f**k/glitchy s**t with effectrix/buffer override/dblue stretch (didn't know until yesterday that he made a standalone of this effect...so awesome) and controlling it with a touchpad I took off an old laptop and touchpad2midi. Works great so far...like a mini Kaoss Pad but for 20$ and can be used with any effect. It's cured my taste for hardware stuff that does the same. Now to build 3 more and have a 4 touchpad array. Live control over all 4 X/Y pads in zebra? h**l yeah.

DBLUE GLITCH VST with a midi fader controller is great fun too.....

That Gotharman stuff is Very impressive! Looks as though I will have to begin saving up for the deFormer..
@ Over $2000 it should only take about a year or so :shock: the $300 teaspoon is looking Really Good!

I have one very simple (and cheap) trick: Just use an Alesis Nanoverb or Nanocompressor without the power supply. By changing the input volume you'll get a variety of damaged sound. Different than usual aliasing. Good for beats. Might work with some other sound processors, I don't know...

PS. I can sell you a Nanoverb (I'll keep the Nanocompressor), if interested, just get in touch.

korg products have a grainshifter effect thats really cool. the kaoss pad in particular is perfect for it.
