JB TimeMachine is a VST plugin that provides accurate reproduction of the characteristic sound of vintage samplers, such as the Commodore 64, or older Akai samplers. The (virtual) sampling rate can be varied, as well as the number of bits used for digital representation. furthermore, aliasing distortion can be generated individually for AD and DA conversion.
CMT Bitcrusher is an easy to use, opensource distortion / bit crusher / downsampler plug.
Bit/Rate-Reducer vst audio effect with pre- and after cutoff filters. Runs on most vst hosts. Gives you the ability to create Daft Punk like chord sounds, cool lofi beats and more. Version 2 now comes with 3 interpolation algorithms, lp/hp filters, 2 bit reducers and improvements!

Float Crush is a new type of bitcrusher exploiting the nature of the floating point unit. It offers something the regular bitcrusher can’t; a dual flavor distortion.
What does Float Crush do?
A floating point unit has three important segments to it, the sign, the exponent, and the mantissa. A normal 32-bit float uses 23 bits for it’s mantissa values and 7 bits for it’s exponent.
What Float Crush does is applies quantization to the exponent and mantissa range of bits, the same quantization a normal bitcrusher would. But the difference is this creates a multi-staged effect, where quantizing the mantissa range brings a soft, airy texture, and the exponent range which can completely ‘rearrange’ the sound.
There’s only a few presets but try it out for yourself. When adjusting the exponent effect, you might notice the signal gets softer, if that happens use the Pre-Gain control to compensate.
thrummaschine is a 3-band distortion effect with independant, LFO-driven filters. Make your bass, mid and high frequencies oscillate at different speeds, shapes and pan, with whatever flavour and level of distortion you dial in for each band- 3 user-defined bands for bass, mid and high freqencies, with overlap if required- 3 filters with tempo-sync LFO, for each freq band- overdrive, distortion and bitcrush effects- send level for each band to each effect- pan and volume for each band!!WARNING!! Thrummaschine is capable of nasty loudness if you push the settings hard, keep volumes low while you play with the controls
Flanging, bit crunching, distortion effect inspired by the Alesis Bitrman f/x unit.
This FX VST is the same Bipolar Distortion found in the War Drumz VSTi. A filter/bitcrasher/distortion effect which sounds especially good on drums. It comes with 20 presets.
Eat Me is a Stereo Bit Crusher
A simple bitcrusher plugin.
Very simple but effective Feedback / Aliasing FX with Sample-Rate Reduction.
Applies a simple algorithmic sequencer to downsampling settings.
A single-stream quasi-synchronous granulator which also features an analog filter to further manipulate the sound with a smooth lowpass, phatpass(with some big bottom end) and highpass formant hybrid settings. The sonix interface is very easy on the eyes and the gui gives sonix the look of hardware rather than software.All the main controls can be automated of course so you get ‘full control’over your audio grains, and metering is courtesy of a standard rms sensing VU which monitors the mono input level only.
