WOK has introduced Ratchit – a MIDI plugin for Windows designed to deliver the classic Tangerine Dream step sequencing ratcheting effect:
Ratchit is a tool to achieve the “ratcheting effect”, which was made famous by Tangerine Dream on their old records.
It is meant to be placed behind ClockWOrK but will of course work with any step sequencer or manual MIDI input.
Ratchit is a VST-plugin that repeats incoming notes according to the selected clock divider. It can be triggered manually or via MIDI CC controller. That way it can be controlled by the CC knobs of Clockwork to have different divide speeds at different steps.
It is included free with ClockWOrK or available seperately for 5 €.
