Nostalgic for vintage sound encodings, 80s computer speakers, or the SPC Delay from a famous 16-bit console? chipcrusher’s got all that, plus grit (background noise) and filter-impulse responses. chipcrusher is an advanced bitcrusher, a speaker simulator and a noise machine. It has taken us a lot of effort, but we are finally proud to announce the release of our long awaited effect plugin. We hope you’ll like it.
There is a wide spectrum of results achievable with chipcrusher. For example:
Uniquely destroy/mangle a beat, a guitar or any other audio track.
Play single hits and emulate the sound of old samplers.
Add ‘accurate dirt’ to chipsounds’s output.
The three main components in chipcrusher are: DAC Encoding, Background Noise and Post-Processing. The audio inputs first go through a simulation of early lofi digital audio codecs (DAC Encoding). Then it get mixed with the Background Noise to add some grit. And finally, the sound get sent through a selection of speaker and filter impulse responses that we call the Post-Processing stage. Of course, each component can be bypassed on demand without muting the audio.
