Sinevibes has released Stutter, which they describe as a self-randomizing audio repeater available as an Audio Unit plugin for Mac.
A spokesperson told us, “Stutter continuously samples a small slice of incoming audio, repeats it a number of times, and then starts over. Each time this sampling-repetition process restarts, the slice size and the number of repeats are randomized. The effect can run either linked or independently between left and right channels, and also has a variable probability of affecting the input signal. Altogether, these features make Stutter an easy-to-operate, highly useful experimental tool that turns anything into a chaotic rhythm or a grainy, time-stretched texture.”
Pricing and Availability:
Stutter costs $29 and is available in Audio Unit format for macOS 10.6.8 or later.
