This Replicant screencast by Chris Randall demos the latest sound mangling software from Audio Damage.
Here’s the Replicant description:
Replicant is a delay-based effect in the “beat slicer/looper” vein, with some tricks of its own that separate it from the herd. From a simple delay or panning effect, on up to massive random beat mangling, Replicant is a capable plugin well in line with today’s modern electronic music styles. Stuttering buffers and filter drops are easy to program, and the comprehensive randomization features give it a mind of its own, if so desired. If you’re looking to add some chance to your programming, you’ve come to the right place.
Replicant is available as a VST effect for Windows, and as an AudioUnit/VST effect bundle for OSX Universal Binary. Note that you must have OSX 10.3.9 or greater to use the Macintosh version of this plugin.
- Tempo-based delay and looping effects, from 1/128th note to an entire measure.
- Six independant randomization controls, for subtle changes or extreme aleatoric madness, including a global randomize button.
- Unique “Hold” feature, to store a random sequence you like.
- Resonant low-pass and high-pass filters that change over time.
- Pan position that changes over time.
- Two separate direction modes, for entire events or individual repeats, with randomization.
- Full MIDI Learn for hardware control of every parameter. (VST only; handled by host in AU version).
