knobster has announced the release of Slitch, a free VST instrument plug-in for Windows for the manipulation of audio files.It can turn any recording into a set of percussion, glitches, or even scratches, knobster says.
The plug-in is based on splitting audio files into equal chunks, which have consistently mapped keys on a MIDI-keyboard, according to the company. By adjusting Decay and Sustain parameters you can get chunks of varying lengths. In addition, you can adjust the pitch, add some distortion and process the sound by an LP filter.
Effects can be achieved using the built-in LFO, which can modulate all of the basic parameters.
MIDI-automation is also available.
