NUSofting has announced the release of Bit Fluzer, a free bitcrusher VST effect plugin for Windows operating systems.
Bit Fluzer is an audio effect similar to standard “bit crushers”, but featuring two channels with input filters and audio bit reductions modulated by two LFOs. Using the Bit Fluzer plugin you can alter the bit depth of the audio signal from your instruments or audio tracks in your DAW in various ways.
The two-bit depth controls range from one to 20 bits in a continuous fashion, moreover, the bit depth can be made to rhythmically oscillate with the LFOs. That way you can obtain a range of mono or stereo modulating effects: from subtle “sound warming”, due to the soft noise introduced by a little bit depth reduction, to more aggressive distortions and groovy patterns. The two channels can work independently on different sections of the audio spectrum since one channel features a lowpass filter and the other a highpass filter.
To create a new stereo image on the output, use the pan controls. Also, the dry/wet slider allows mixing the stereo input with the effected signals.
Bit Fluzer comes with a scalable GUI and custom colours. All its parameters can be automated inside your DAW.
The free bitcrusher VST plugin can be downloaded via KVRAudio (no registration required). The formats available are Windows VST (VST2), 64-bit and 32-bit versions.
