Default new JS effect - paranoia (mangler)!

ok, let's try that again!

paranoia (destructive mangler)

designed to injure your sound in terrible ways. import the included preset library to get a feel for what it can do.


installation:

Now included with Reaper


controls:

* input gain: gain into processing circuit (doesn't affect dry mix)
* dry out: amount of clean signal to mix in
* wet out: amount of broken signal to mix in

* resampler: aliasing resampler. lower is worse.

* bitcrusher: off disables (including next two controls). on is "normal" mode. on+noisier is a buggy implementation that sounds cool on bassdrums.
* thermonuclear war: bit manipulation pattern. 0 is disabled, anything higher than that and you're on your own. highly material dependent. optimized for 8-10 bitdepth, below 8 and it could get even gnarlier.
* bitdepth: bit reduction, 10-3 bit. lower is worse.

* gate: simple one-knob gate. anything below 50% will leak some ungated signal through. use above 50% when bitcrusher is set to 'noisy' to stop it completely freaking out.

* attitude/love/jive: post-processing filter (off/LP/BP/HP)


this plugin is very material dependent - a lot of stuff is unusable through it, but some stuff just works really well. works best on dynamic stuff like single drum tracks.

feedback and criticism gratefully accepted!

ok, it's posted now, sorry about that!

make sure you get the preset library, it does a lot of stuff and it's a bit overwhelming without a starting point.

Cheers!

The gate isn't perfect - so if it goes silent try tweaking that.

It's a bit of a weird effect but I'm pleased with how it came out. Pretty sure it's riddled with bugs tho :-)
