Glitch / Stutter plugins

Curious as to what you guys use for glitch / stutter effects. I was watching some guys using SP-404's on the weekend and was really into what they were doing with the stutter and reverse effects. Are there any VSTs that more or less emulate this?

Re: Glitch / Stutter plugins

It might be the unpopular opinion here but I personally don't really believe in glitch plugins. They all produce sounds in a way that doesn't sound allow much creativity, and it usually takes away from the sound in general. I don't know how difficult it is to do in whatever DAW you have, but in Ableton I just manually stitch together every glitch sound I do by micro-chopping and manually reversing or repeating anything I want until it sounds good.

Re: Glitch / Stutter plugins

Besides most of those glitch fx can easily be recognized in a track, Im just not a fan because the whole approach is pretty much off because it has nothing to do with the actual thing.


Instant glitch? Instant IDM? Think about it^^

These are just basic sampler functions. I'd recommend your favorite sampler, TBH

Many DAWs include awesome tools but most people just ignore them or doesn't know about them and instantly try to look for alternatives. That glitch / stutter effect can be achieved in so many different ways, one of them could be in-built sampler, I agree. Short loop, create automation that controls its length or sample offset and fuck with it.

I second that. Using Samplers directly also sounds much better then any buffer based FX.

Re: Glitch / Stutter plugins

I like effectrix from sugar bytes as well as molekular by native instruments as well as flux fx on my iPad
They are more like crazy multi fx tho
I also use a few effects racks I made I live as well as just chopping into a drum rack and resequencing from there

Re: Glitch / Stutter plugins

I like Candy



..seriously, I think the rest of the guys are right about this "effect" being easy enough to do yourself..though not all of us want or feel the need to actually sit there and do it ourselves.

Also, as has already been pointed out, there are different ways of getting that effect..such as chopping up and patching things together yourself..using some sort of granular synth like PadShop to play it key by key..or a half-decent sampler, that will let you tweak the settings as you play/record.

For what it's worth..even if you do want or go with a plug to do this in the end, I'd still invest the time in yourself messing around at different ways of doing this..even if just to experience what it's like to do it.

Re: Glitch / Stutter plugins

I think the issue with a lot of buffer FX software is you can really hear their character in a mix most of the time. I hear dBlue Glitch all over bad/cheesy "glitch music" all the time. But, it will only be other audio nerds who can hear it, so it depends on who your audience is.

Though the big thing for me is that many of them don't give you very much control--which is a big, practical reason not use them. On the other hand, recording some audio that you have run through something dBlue Glitch then cutting out little bits and rearranging that with other audio seems like a good technique. Working with audio is more tedious, but far more precise if you want to get a nice groove going.

Do you actually believe that is an unpopular opinion here? Pretty much every time someone asks for recommendations for glitching plugs, it turns into a "mangle audio directly or in a sampler ya noob" thread.

I see what you mean..but I think you're viewing the replies to this topic wrong..it's not that everyone on here thinks anyone is a noob or should not use plugs to do this..just that most of us think it's always a good idea to push yourself a little to learn how to do it for yourself.

By all means, use plugs if you want to..whatever the effect or sound you're going for..but I..and others on here..still think you own it to yourself to try your hand at doing it yourself. No disrespect intended to anyone..after all, that's one of the main points of this forum..to share info and help others learn..not just to review and pass on a list of plugs and software..folks can get that kind of help from most other sites on the web as it is.

glitch machine have a couple freebies that are good i forgot about those!
but yeah really using ANY effect on its own is obvious if its overdone
so moderation and try to find what you like out of the multitude of effects out there, get trial versions,
and try and work them into your system to personalize your sound
if that's all manual chopping or parallel processing or bouncing different tracks through different effects and mixing them or a mix of the 3 its the result that counts regardless of whatever anyone says!

on an semi-related note man i cant wait to get home and start using live again!

eh, I wasn't even really talking about this thread even, I just thought it was funny the way they were like: "maybe this is an unpopular opinion here" and then followed with the popular opinion that you shouldn't be overly reliant on glitch plugs.

Well I mean if you'll notice my post count I haven't been here very long, so I don't know the general consensus on many things. I was aware that people don't care for dBlue, but I wasn't so sure about glitch VSTs in general.

Harmor in Fl-Studio can do some crazy stuff to samples like reversing the sound, or tuning it to one note. it's like 140 dollars or something but it's totally worth the money, i use it for almost every sound i make, including my bass drums. (you can also use it in other softwares i believe)

Also, Flanger can do some crazy glitch stuff, i use a fast flanger with a slight detune to make some nice screeches.

And of course, Vocodex, or any vocoder. Vocoders are common in glitch hop as the make excellent squelch noises, and can do some craazzy stuff when used with Harmor's re-sampling abilities.

Those are my top choices, but there are plenty other ones out there too. Although sometimes just the way you place the notes can do a better job than a VST plugin, placing notes in fast succession can do some funky stuff too.

How do you use a Vocoder for glitching? *curious*

I usually just confuse Ins and Outs or use wrong cables ( hammer needed)

I use Vocodex so I dont know how other vocoders work, but in Vocodex you can do some crazy modulation. It also has a carrier synth so it can do some crazy stuff.

General vocoding can do some cool stuff too. try running a wavetable synth through one.
