I think the Bit Crusher is broken. doesn't seem to work for me. :/
Agree... only works when you get the knob almost all the way counterclockwise (and doesn't really sound like a normal bitcrusher then, anyway).
Good to know it's not just me then. It's a shame because the TAL Bitcrusher plug is actually pretty good.

Turns out fishing through the presets is the only thing worse than the bitcrusher...painfully slow and cumbersome when having to go through the built in "browser".

People Mover is a nice one, J. It begs to be distorted and destroyed in a none OSC manner. :clap:

Yeah wondered about the crusher myself. It seems it's placed before the filter and specifically crushes what's coming out of the OSCs (labeled OSC CRUSH) with something of a more literal bit reduction style than the "bit crushing" sound in many synths, done more with sample rate reduction, especially to get those talky aliasing resonances going when placed after the filter and playing with the filter res.

All in all, when taking this into account, it sounds quite a bit :) as expected -- but count me in preferring a more "musical" crusher, though.

Dial at max:

At halfway:

At 0.4:

So yeah... It does sound real subtle at first and then kicks in rather rapidly like that.

Thanks a bit for the explanation and pics...and the pun :D, Guenon. In a sense, it's a shapecrusher, for better or worse. Might help make some use out of it knowing this going in.

The actual code for the bitcrusher is very simple:

Hey all! This is my first time in the OSC competition. Here's my submission:

https://soundcloud.com/helicopterdown/h ... me-osc-118

I used 7 Elek7ro plugins, and 8 Noisemakers.

I edited it all in Presonus Studio One, with built-in effects for reverb, delays, and mastering.

Happy to enter! I've had my eye on the competitions for a few months but I finally decided to enter.

Anyone who's interested in getting updates of rghvdberg's Polka (and other shenanigans) can come join us in the OSC Slack group :D
It's a great place to ask questions if you're looking for tips on the synths, also share what you're working on before posting it more officially in this thread for some first pass feedback.

Wow. Noisemaker has been on my todos too. :( Using Pro-Q feels like cheating to me, especially v3 but might be a nice backup EQ if you need extreme slopes. I will get 3-4 days to myself this month, so maybe I can squeeze in an entry. I really like Noisemakers gritty filter/bit crusher combo.
