HomeCorrupter is a free bitcrusher VST effect plugin (Windows and macOS) by Igorski.
HomeCorrupter provides an effect that harks back to a period in which computers weren’t actually that good at handling audio.
The plugin can degrade the resolution of any incoming audio signal by reducing the sampling rate and bit depth. Further lo-fi quality is achieved by reducing the “computers clock speed” which slows down the playback of the input, all on the fly.
All properties can either be automated using the built-in oscillators or can be controlled directly from your DAW.
Think industrial or dark sound design to find a purpose for the plugin.
HomeCorrupter is pretty straightforward as you can control sample rate, bit depth and playback rate using their dedicated sliders. Each of these can also be controlled by an LFO. The LFO’s become active once their speed is set above 0 Hz.
You can set the speed between 0 – 10 Hz and control the depth of the sweep for a stronger effect.
Additional to the above you can set the wet/dry mix of the effect using the balance controls.
