Audiodamage Discord 3

Chris Randall has released an updated version of his nice stereoizing delay, pitchshifter, modulator named Discord. This plug-in always reminds me of the effect Meat Beat Manifesto used on breakbeats on their early albums.

“The pitch-shifter consists of three separate algorithms: a “vintage” mode (the original Discord algorithm, modeled on the Eventide H910 and H949), a “clean” mode for more modern shifting sounds, and a “granular” mode for experimental effects. Each mode has its strengths, depending on the input material, and Discord3 has a broad palette of capabilities as a result. The P1 and P2 algorithms have full control over the buffer (window) size of the shift effect, for fine tuning the shift to the input signal, or for stranger sound effects. At the extremes of the six-octave shift range, some truly strange aliasing and artifacts can be had with this control. Now, to be clear, if you’re looking for a nice, clean diatonic pitch shifter for fine surgery and re-pitching the full program, you need to look elsewhere. Discord3 is a tool for sound design, barberpole shifting delays, and special effects; think Eno, Visconti, Bowie, or Dirty Mind-era Prince and you’ll be on the right track.” – audiodamage.com

    looks great alright – do you mean the effects on ‘Armed Audio Warfare’ or different albums?

    If I wanted a physical unit that did close to the same stuff what would that be?
