Bent has a nice little interface, pretty easy on the eyes and easy to use. I like the old school circuit board look. The "Jitter", "Morph" and "Grain" controls are easy to use with their slider interface. They were pretty responsive, which I also liked.
The sound is nice and dirty, with lots of grit and stuttering added to the source sound. I was taking house tracks and making them dirty and glitched out fast and easy with Bent. It's cool to drop Bent onto a signal chain and just let it mess something up, you can make something new out of that pretty easily.
One thing I'd really like though is a little more grit and distortion. I found myself having to add a distortion effect to get that extra punch that distortion gives to anything Glitch based. I also like a pitch shift of some kind, to really take the sound WAY down or up and really freak it out - but the simplicity of Bent works well too, because most Circuit bent tools aren't overly complex anyway.
Overall, a cool plugin, all I wish is that there were an AU version!Read more
