Audio Damage Replicant 2 Glitch Effects

One of the original buffer effects, and still one of the best, Replicant is essentially a randomized looper/buffer reverse, with a randomized stutter effect inside the loop. From a simple delay or panning effect, on up to massive random “instant Autechre” beat mangling, Replicant is a capable plugin well in line with today’s electronic music styles. Stuttering buffers and filter drops are easy to program, and the comprehensive randomization features give it a mind of its own, if so desired. If you’re looking to add some chance to your production, you’ve come to the right place!

IMPORTANT!!!! PLEASE READ!!!

Replicant 2 is a tempo-based effect, and requires a host that provides transport information. A standalone application is supplied, but it requires an Inter-App Audio connection to a host with a transport to work. We strongly advise using the (identical) AUv3 instead. Ableton Link will be added in the near future for true standalone operation.

Also note that AudioBus 3 does _not_ provide transport information. Hence, Replicant will not work correctly in AudioBus 3. We recommend BeatMaker 3, AUM, Cubasis, ModStep, GarageBand, and similar AUv3 hosts that have a transport.

And finally, we have made an iPhone version available for cross-compatibility, but note that the controls are very small. It can be difficult to use in this context, and we do not recommend it.

Replicant 2 is an aggressive buffer-rearranger. It is primarily meant for percussive straight-time material such as drum loops. If the track has a lot of swing, we suggest using loop sizes no smaller than 1/8, as shorter times will nip off the front of the off-beat slices. Furthermore, on legato material Replicant 2 will inevitably choose slice times that contain non-zero-crossing samples. Hence, you will hear clicking on duller material with long decays. This is expected and known. It is a glitch effect. 🙂

Replicant 2 for iOS is otherwise identical to our Replicant 2 desktop plugin. Visit the Audio Damage website for audio samples, a video overview, and a full manual.

FEATURES:

» Tempo-based delay and looping effects, from 1/128th note to an entire measure.

» Stutter adds further subdivisions, down to a 1/16384th note (otherwise known as a “tone”.)

» Seven independant randomization controls, for subtle changes or extreme aleatoric madness, including a global randomize button.

» Our unique “Hold” feature, to store a random sequence you like.

» Resonant low-pass and high-pass filters that change over time.

» Pan position that changes over time.

» Two separate direction modes, for entire events or individual repeats, with randomization.

» Front panel triggering of loop events for live playing of effects.

  • iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Magix Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
