Tor-Helge Skei has released fx_cutter, a free loop slicer/buffer FSU effect plug-in for Windows.
Audio is continually recorded into a buffer (length is ‘beats’, each slice subdivided into ‘slices’), and randomly (‘cut prob’), a few slices will be selected (‘max cut’), and subdivided (‘max loop’), and then this small bit is looped for the duration of the outer selection, the longer bit (the ‘max cut’ part).. and each time this loop wraps around, it can possibly halve (‘slowdown’) or double (‘speedup’) its playback speed, or halve (‘halve’) or double (yes, ‘double’) the size of the looped bit..
it is pretty uncontrollable and unrepeatable with all the probibilities, so i usually run a track several times through this, and cut out the good parts..
The plug-in is available for download for Windows (VST).
ModeAudio says that Burst SFX – Thor & Combinator Presets injects some serious SFX and sound design expertise straight into your Reason projects.

Julien Bayle has released ultraGlitcher 1.0 – a new audio FX unit for for Ableton Live
Ableton Live effects available here: http://designthemedia.com/ultraglitcher
– 3 fx stages based on step sequencing
* frequency modulator modulating the input with a raw and gloomy carrier
* crusher crushing bit depth resolution + sample rate of the input
* dirty delay delaying and modulating the feedback on very uncanny manners
– independant step sequencers for audio-channels L/R
– global bypass switch
– global dry/wet
– master shaper envelope based with retriggering rate
The signal pass thru several internal modules, successively:
– frequency modulator
– dirty delay
Each module are based on a step sequencer, except the step shaper.
Each module can have its own step number. At each step, a value is popped out to a dsp depending on the nature of the module.
You can tweak steps for both L/R channels and you can also link them, the L step sequencer becoming the one used for both channel modulation.
Each module contains a small step sequencer helper providing an eay way to create sequences increasing or decreasing, including a small cycle, on-the-fly
At last, each module contains a smoother providing a small interpolation between each step.
frequency modulator modulates the frequency of the signal by using a carrier. You change frequency from min to max and you can adjust the range corresponding to min & max. You also have a multiplier to make it sounding crazier.
crusher crushes the signal by degrading sample rate & bit depth. You can choose each value for each step for each audio channel. You also have a divider that provide a sample rate tweak for very low frequency with a better resolution.
dirty delay delays the signal. You can choose feedback amount for each step. You can also choose the delay time manually or sync with the transport. A Bizarre mode provides a very strange noise/sample-and-hold delay time movements that is interesting.
A global waveshaper can be enabled at the master output.
You choose a triggering rate and the envelope is applied to the incoming waveform just before to be popped out to the next device in the chain.
M-RGT has announced the release of psyGEN, an experimental granular synthesizer plug-in for Windows.
Using granular synthesis as a basis it adds extensive Modulation and FX capabilities to take any type of .wav file source and turn it into a multi-layered composition of great complexity.
With the built-in 16 track sequencer, long evolving ambient/drone sounds can be created and cross-faded with other sounds to create dense tapestries of sound. Also, the sequencer allows for more rhythmic based compositions or patches as well. It is possible to create an entire composition with just one track incorporating many variations.
psyGEN can be used as a standalone synthesizer with a plug-in like SaviHost or similar program or can be installed as a VSTi with a Host DAW.
The psyGEN plug-in for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for $33.50 USD.
Sinevibes has announced the release of Circuit, its latest Audio Unit effect plugin for multiband waveshape modelling.
Circuit splits the signal into three frequency bands, and passes each band through its own processing engine which offers 12 different algorithms – from sine-based waveshape transformers and foldback distortion, to circuit-bent filters, lo-fi and ring modulation. These models can be further modulated by an input envelope follower, tempo-synchronized LFO or two-dimensional Lorenz attractor. All this is wrapped into a stylish, colour-coded interface based on Sinevibes’ innovative design language, which makes it incredibly fun to work with.
- Morph lifeless waveforms into entirely new, rich and dense sounds.
- Transform synth basses and leads into completely different, layered material.
- Re-synthesise and mangle electronic drum loops beyond recognition.
Circuit is available to purchase for $29 USD. It is also included in the Sinevibes plug-in bundle for $119 USD.
