Stutter self-randomizing audio repeater

BUY NOW ... TRY DEMO ... PDF MANUAL

Stutter is a self-randomizing audio repeater. It continuously samples a small slice of incoming audio, repeats it a number of times, and then starts over. Each time this sampling-repetition process restarts, the slice size and the number of repeats are randomized. The effect can run either linked or independently between left and right channels, and also has a variable probability of affecting the input signal. Altogether, these features make Stutter an easy-to-operate, highly useful experimental tool that turns anything into a chaotic rhythm or a grainy, time-stretched texture.
