GlitchCore is an Audio Unit (AUv3) effect for re-sequencing live audio. It can rearrange audio that it processes. GlitchCore lets you glitch audio by making micro loops and scrubbing your sound. GlitchCore also lets you set loop points, variable loop lengths, and can reverse live audio.

GlitchCore can be used in your favorite host app like AUM, apeMatrix, GarageBand, Cubasis, and others.

GlitchCore works really well on drums, samples, or drum machines, but also works great on synths, pads and vocals.

Super slick app

I watched the preview videos of this and was confused as to what was happening, but now after playing with it I can say it is really easy to figure out. It cuts up and rearranges incoming audio in a variety of interesting ways, and can do totally chaotic glitching, subtle re-sequencing, and nearly anything between those extremes.

This app is basically everything that was awesome about Glitchbreaks packed into a super lean, super easy to use AUv3 plugin. It is awesome. Use it on drums, use it on synths, use it on everything. The UI is incredibly clear, it stretches well across various hosts. Not much else to say, if you have any inkling to glitch up anything then this is the app you need.

Instant IDM

Very cool and does way more than I thought. Excellent for 90s style idm a la Aphex Twin, Squarepusher but could still be used to form ambient textures and atmosphere. Well executed and the dev seems driven to keep updating and bug squashing. Well worth the purchase.
