Favourite Bitcrusher?

Really enjoying new plugin from Unfiltered Audio: Lo Fi Af


The only other bitcrushers etc I have to compare it to are the OTO Biscuit (plugin, would love hardware) and two pedals: Alexis Bitrman and Frostwave Sonic Alienator (those two pedals take my Tenori On into Alva Noto/Ryoji Ikeda territory!)

Main difference with Lo Fi Af is it has modelled behaviour of more diverse degradation processes eg CD skipping ('Oval Popp' preset is much fun for wonky beats a la Markus Popp) as well as mp3 degradation, cellphone bleed chirps etc...




Whats your favourite bit crusher? And what do you most like crushing?

I also quite like this new UA one, but also just got the Denise Audio Bite Harder - and it too sounds brutal. There’s a free version.

I actually love NI's Bite. It's definitely not your standard bitcrusher in that the Crunch knob is dialed in for extreme, industrial-level distortion, and seems to apply some kind of upward dynamics that pull the noise and dirt to the foreground.

I have not tried the new UA one. Tritik Krush Pro has been my main tool for bit crush. I like its features. I also have Decimort and use it now and then. It is good too. Am I missing out?
