Puremagnetik has released Splitch, which they describe as a hybrid distortion and pitch shifting plugin. They say, however, that Splitch is much more than a pitch shifter as it can cleanly shimmer and reflect, freeze and distort, delay and scatter.
A spokesperson told us, "Working in the spectral domain Splitch is a one octave up/down pitch shifter that grabs the incoming audio signal and routes it however you choose - through a waveshaper, a delay line, a spectral freeze and a random function. Some of Splitch's specialties include subtle, pitch-shifted delays; spectrally frozen distortion drones; octave layering, and chaotic randomized re-pitching. Splitch is perfect for adding embellishments on top of your existing audio and will easily get you to sonic places you never thought of!"
