You decide which frequency ranges to target with the push-pull graph

The push-pull graph lets you have complete control over the frequencies that are going to be crushed, giving you endless possibilities and new sounds. Automate it to create organically changing bit crushed lines and create steep curves for screaming resonances.

"... pushing the envelope in
terms of Bit Crushing"

"Bite Harder is pushing the envelope in terms of Bit Crushing. Abuse the plugin and you will be rewarded with sonic ear candy of the highest order. This is a fabulous sound design tool, super versatile yet easy to use." - Thomas Schumacher

Bite me harder

Refined crush controls

The Bite Harder offers the classic bit crushing features, but adds unique controls to refine or destroy your sound even more. With the Silky dial, you can smooth out the effect of the individual bit and sample controls. Alongside this we’ve added the push-pull graph, a layer of FX and a drive control.

Inspiration

We wanted to create an adaptable bit-crusher with complete control over its sound. On top of that, we wanted an extra layer of surprise, joy and an almost instrument-like feeling. The plugin is based on a crazy sounding bit-crushing algorithm that we added our push-pull graph technology to, which you might know from the Dragon Fire & God Mode, with tailored fx and clever smoothing to top things off. This plugin enables you to destroy your audio and make extremely rough and bold sounds by merging the push-pull technique, as well as classic bit reduction and sample reduction functionalities: You don’t need anything more than this plugin to go from a clean bassline to a distorted, screaming monster, or to give your drums the edge they need and create new glitched up and futuristic arrangements.
... where digital shines
"... many times I look for real random glitches and effects like this and there are not many (good ones) out there. These are the things you can't do with hardware and where digital shines, as usual, great job." - David Gnozzi / MixBusTv
