LoFi Pitch Dropout

Lofi Pitch Dropout contains six modes to add tasty errors.

Imagine a tape in an old playback system getting stuck and then speeding up again to catch up, adding a nice and subtle flux to the pitch of your signal.

Lofi Pitch Dropout allows you to do this randomly, ranging in frequency from very rarely to extremely often, or even controlled precisely through the Dropout button, which you can automate to sync to your beat.

Add an extra layer of character to your sounds.

LoFi Pitch Dropout - Alive & Tasteful Error Generator

Changing this control from 0% to 100% will increase or decrease the strength of the dropouts.

The visualizer display in the middle of the plug-in gives you an exact feedback on what the virtual tapes inside the circuit are doing.

Pitch Dropout features six different modes, each will give the dropouts a different shape and chance behaviour.

Click the Dropout button to immediately trigger the effect.

You can also automate this control and use it to trigger the effect in a controlled manner.

Set Chance to 0% and syncing the effects to your track with this instead.

The Chance slider allows you to tweak this algorithm and therefore define how often the dropouts are happening.

When Chance is set to a low value dropouts will happen more rarely – the further you increase Chance the more likely it is that dropouts will happen.

When the Channel Selector is set to mono, dropouts will happen the same way on both channels.

With the Channel Selector set to stereo, the dropouts are happening individually for left and right channel – creating a more spread out listening effect.
