The Automaton buffer effect sequencer is available.


Automaton Overview Pt. 2 – Effects… from Audio Damage on Vimeo.

I like Ableton’s Beat Repeat plug-in , Monome hardware, the iPhone and random sequencers so how am I not going to fall in love with Audio Damage’s new plug in Automaton? It was released over the weekend for $49 and is available Mac/PC VST/AU. On Twitter, Audio Damage’s Chris Randall proclaimed this was their fastest selling plug-in to date.

“Automaton is a unique look at buffer effects, allowing you to experiment with artificial life within your DAW. With four separate effects (Stutter, Modulate, Bitcrush, and Replicate) driven by a cellular automata sequencer, Automaton is capable of adding subtle seemingly random fills and “humanizing” effects, but if you like, you can crank the sequencer up to eleven, and watch as your DAW becomes a petri dish while Automaton makes complete hay of the track you’ve inserted it to.” – Audio Damage

Audio Damage’s new plug-in Automaton looks hot.

I really enjoy Chris Randall’s blog Analog Industries. He’s definitely got his own voice. Some people would say he’s rude but I like that he tells it like it is. More importantly his company Audio Damage makes some great plug-ins. The next release from AD called Automaton has peaked my interest. In fact, I’ve left some money in my PayPal designated for this new baby.

Chris describes it as, “…cellular automata plus buffer effects = complete and total chaos.” Check an an audio sample he posted: Automator MP3

From what I see and hear it has some Tenori elements, cool iPhone style icons matched with some audio mangling ala Smartelectronix DestroyFX dfx Buffer Override.

On a side note I can’t leave comments on the Analog Industries blog. I’ve signed up and logged in but a message tells me “You must have an access level of 1 to post a comment.” Anyone know why?
