Faded Instruments has introduced Litbit, a new ‘breathing bitcrusher’ for Mac & Windows.
They say that Litbit’s ‘secret power’ is in its breathe knobs. The breathe knobs allow the bit/sample rate reduction to follow the audio input, which results in a smooth and dynamic bit crushing effect that ‘breathes’ along with your audio.
This feature can also be configured to follow another audio track, for pulsating crushing effects that dynamically interact with other instruments.
Litbit also features Crinkle, a jitter or randomize function that adds a bit of noisy chaos to the bit/sample rate reduction. The speed of the crinkle is controllable and can be set to mono or stereo, which at slow speeds adds a stereo ‘sparkle’ to your sound.
Other features are designed to let you create a wide variety of bitcrushing effects. Here’s a hands-on demo:
