Sutter / glitch / repeat in hardware?

Post by Jee »

Hi,

I'm using a bunch of VST's for stutter / glitch and beat repeat stuff and I was wondering if there are any hardware FX boxes that cover these applications.
The VST I use the most for this are:
- Meldaproduction MRhythmizer (probably my favorite)
- Sugar Bytes Turnado
- Sugar Bytes Looperator
- Izotope Stutter Edit

I would need a USB input to be able to use a MIDI Fighter to triggers different FX ideally + MIIDI clock to get everthing in sync properly (Im' not a fan of tap tempo).
Any recommendation?
thanks :)

EDIT: I obviously meant "stutter" in the title :) typo error, I can't edit the title...

Roland aira gear has stutter fx. They're just releasing a new vt micro box thing you might like

Interesting but pretty oriented around the bit crusher. I fear I won't have the control I want with it live but seems pretty creative, still.

VT stuff is for voice processing isn't it? Did I miss something? Not sure it fits my bill of charge here.

I have a Red Panda Particle V2 (forgot to mention it), which I find absolutely amazing (especially on drums).
MASF Possessed seem to overlap with the particle a bit.
Tensor is already on the radar, looks super cool :)

I heard of it (we see it on a lot of YT videos) but never explored it. Which looks like a mistake! Seems amazing. I will investigate :)

Overall, I'm surprised that there is no "replica" of the VST's I mention in my first post. Something with "FX slots" you could simply trigger with a keyboard (or push button on the machine) and a set of customizable effects chains in each slot.
I also was wondering if the Empress Zoia could do this...

It's possible Tech was referring to the Roland Scooper, which is indeed from the AIRA line, it just a bit older.

Ha OK. Well I'm looking for a stand alone device so no Eurorack.
Maybe Microcosm is really worth a look.
Red means recording video on it was pretty instructive and it might be able to do what I want, even though not the way I expected originally...

Microcosm is great for glitch sounds... The Empress Zoia as well, the Zoia is probably a bit better actually, but
you have to design the effect yourself as the included presets are not that great.

The NLC Beat Freq can do stuttering.

I understand you're probably looking for something different, but (just fyi) the Roland Scooper is a desktop unit, with it's own power supply. It just so happens that it can optionally be mounted in a eurorack case.

+1 on Microcosm. Pricey but lots of options plus MIDI etc.

Blooper also has some great options if you're looping. The new Habit seems to do some of the same stuff in a delay format.

If anyone's interested:

Here is a weak 1 min example of glitch with the Zoia on some drums and a drone from a montreal assembly Purppl, comprised of a granular module, some switches, a couple pitch shifters, sample & hold and LFO modulation. *shrug

don't forget an actual kill switch on the guitar itself.

OK I didn't understand, thanks for pointing out. I will have a closer look, just in case I would miss something interesting ;)
