Faded Instruments has released Litbit, a bit crusher that "breathes along with your audio".
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 (or a sidechained input.). What results is a smooth and dynamic bit crushing effect that breathes along with your audio. But that's not all - it can Crinkle, Filter, Saturate, and just generally mangle your sound into a tangled mess. The icing on this lofi cake is the lissajous display, which draws your sound in real time so you can watch it crunch.
Price: $14.20. Litbit is available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows and an Audio Unit for MacOS. No MacOS VST version is available at this point.
