When nostalgia hits, Bitcrush can bring you back to the digital hardware of times past. It simulates the audio being played back using a low quality sampler with limited sample rate and bit depth. Mm, crunchy.
The Bitcrush can be used to create distorting effects that sound like that of scraping analog radio, or inherently lo-fi sound sources, like old video games.
This plugin is a “Snapin”. Kilohearts plugins work great together, and all the snapins can work double duty as modular components inside our snapin hosts. There are several different hosts:
• Snap Heap, a free host that allows you to quickly and easily combine your Snapins to create your own serial and parallel modular effects units,
• Multipass, a multiband modular host,
• and Phase Plant the award-winning, semi-modular softsynth that enables you to add your full effects chain right inside the preset area.
You can also use it as a regular VST/AU plugin.
