Breathing Bit Crushing
Litbit is a simple little bit crusher with a fluid and organic-ly digital sound. It breathes and flows around your audio as it crunches and munches it into lofi goodness.
How is litbit different than the millions of other bit crushers? Litbit’s secret power is in its breathe knobs. Bit crushers are great effects – but often the sound can be too static or unmusical. With litbit, the breathe knobs allow the bit/sample rate reduction to follow the audio input. What results is a smooth and dynamic bit crushing effect that breathes along with your audio.
What else does it do?
Well, first of all – the breathing function doesn’t just need to follow its own audio – it can be sidechained to any other audio track – allowing for complex gestures or pulsating crushing effects that dynamically interact with other instruments.
Then of course, theres crinkle. Crinkle is essentially a jitter or randomize function, and it adds a bit of noisy chaos to the bit/sample rate reduction. The speed of the crinkle is controllable and can be set to mono or stereo – which at slow speeds adds a gorgeous stereo sparkle to your sound.
Not noisy enough? There’s a DC Offset button that realigns the signal and gets quiet sections to blow out and crunch a bit more.
Still not noisy enough? There’s an extra noise dial to add some stereo noise to your signal (pre-effect).
To round the whole thing off, we end with a traditional one knob lopass/hipass dj filter and a blown out saturator to help grime up the sound and blast it through your speakers.
The icing on this lofi cake is the gorgeous lissajous display, which draws your sound in real time so you can watch it crunch
