How do you suppose this is done?? (Glitchy, some time warping, reversing, etc...)

I'm posting three very short clips of three different songs all done by the same guy. I'm trying to figure out what plug / plugs he may be using to accomplish this sound.

I know he's using a MAC (yes, for a fact) so its def not illformed glitch.

AFAIK Audio Damage's Replicant plug is relatively knew, and most of these clips are at least 3 to 4 years old, so I think that plug may be ruled out as well...

any thoughts?

If he used a special plugin for this glitching on his Mac, you can probably find it here:
Or it could have been made with a softsampler like kontakt.

Buffer Override or similarly named plug-in from Destroy FX might do something like that, but I think Max/MSP is the one to get for doing granular glitchy stuff.

sounds to me like ring modulation, reverse and some manual slice & dice techniques.

thanks guys.

I've messed with buffer override but I can't seem to get it to do anything like that.

I'll keep at it I guess.

any other thoughts anyone?

Here for the gear

its me, the guy who did this...

hey, its cool too find this post!

the first is just white noise with random volume automation on pro tools le 5

the second is the old scrub shuttle on the same set up...(recorded out to a different system)

and the third is a sequence routed through the inputs of the maelstrom (spelling i know) in reason ...

thanks for listening!
