Fracture by Glitchmachines is a free buffer effect plugin “geared toward creating robotic artifacts and abstract musical malfunctions”.
It features a buffer effect, a multimode filter, three LFOs and a delay; these effects can be reconfigured any way in the processing chain. You can use Fracture to add glitchy articulations and abstract textures in your music, being suitable for drums and percussion, synth lines or sound effects.
Recently, Glitchmachines has released the version 1.2 of Fracture, the new version adding features such as the the ability to re-order the signal chain (I talked about it above) plus 60 new factory presets, bringing the total up to 110.
Also, Fracture has now a new look that matches the rest of Glitchmachines plugins.
Fracture is available as a free download for Windows and Mac (VST/ AU). In order to get it, registration at Glitchmachines is required.
