Image Line has announced its latest VST and FL Studio effect, Gross Beat. Gross Beat is a time manipulation effect designed for repetition and scratching effects. Until the end of December 2008 Gross Beat will feature in Image-Line’s amazing Xmas sale, and will be included free with every order, USD $99 and over.
”Gross beat is perfect for real-time or rendered gating, glitch, repeat, scratching and stutter performances“, commented Didier Dambrin, Chief Software Architect of Image Line Software and developer of Gross Beat.
Gross Beat stores audio in a 2-bar rolling buffer controlled by 36 time and 36 volume mapping envelopes for easy beat-synced glitch, stutter, repeat, scratching and gating effects. The mapping envelopes are pre-assigned to MIDI keys and can be switched live from a controller keyboard or changes can be automated.
Gross Beat features an adaptive ‘sinc interpolation’ algorithm that maintains pristine audio quality of processed audio. Gross Beat provides also includes smoothing attack compensation minimizing clicks caused by discontinuities in volume when playback jumps between locations in the 2 bar audio buffer.
