stwETCH is a playable granular time-stretching / buffer repeater effect capable of stretching up to 500% normal length using granule sizes ranging from 10 to 500 ms.
Further to this there are 2 pitch controls: one that controls granule playback speed, aka speed control (like tape), and one that controls pitch-shift, aka pitch (like a pitchshifter), the company says.
stwETCH was designed as a control surface playable instrument - in a similar vain to wavePLAY. It is said to be entirely monophonic and whilst it has MIDI support, it won't respond to any plain old note-on data.
