An audio buffer mangling and glitch effect for AUv3.
One of the original buffer effects, and still one of the best, Replicant is essentially a randomized looper/buffer reverse, with a randomized stutter effect inside the loop. From a simple delay or panning effect, on up to massive random "instant Autechre" beat mangling, Replicant is a capable plugin well in line with today's electronic music styles. Stuttering buffers and filter drops are easy to program, and the comprehensive randomization features give it a mind of its own, if so desired. If you're looking to add some chance to your production, you've come to the right place!
IMPORTANT!!!! PLEASE READ!!!
Replicant 2 is a tempo-based effect, and requires a host that provides transport information. A standalone application is supplied, but it requires an Inter-App Audio connection to a host with a transport to work. We strongly advise using the (identical) AUv3 instead. We recommend BeatMaker 3, AUM, Cubasis, ModStep, GarageBand, AudioBus 3, and similar AUv3 hosts that have a transport.
And finally, we have made an iPhone version available for cross-compatibility, but note that the controls are very small. It can be difficult to use in this context, and we do not recommend it.
Replicant 2 is an aggressive buffer-rearranger. It is primarily meant for percussive straight-time material such as drum loops. If the track has a lot of swing, we suggest using loop sizes no smaller than 1/8, as shorter times will nip off the front of the off-beat slices. Furthermore, on legato material Replicant 2 will inevitably choose slice times that contain non-zero-crossing samples. Hence, you will hear clicking on duller material with long decays. This is expected and known. It is a glitch effect. :-)
Replicant 2 for iOS is otherwise identical to our Replicant 2 desktop plugin. Visit the Audio Damage website for audio samples, a video overview, and a full manual.
» Tempo-based delay and looping effects, from 1/128th note to an entire measure.
» Stutter adds further subdivisions, down to a 1/16384th note (otherwise known as a "tone".)
» Seven independant randomization controls, for subtle changes or extreme aleatoric madness, including a global randomize button.
» Our unique "Hold" feature, to store a random sequence you like.
» Resonant low-pass and high-pass filters that change over time.
» Pan position that changes over time.
» Two separate direction modes, for entire events or individual repeats, with randomization.
» Front panel triggering of loop events for live playing of effects.

Ratings and Reviews
It supports AUv3!
I'm supporting all Devs who make 1st class AUv3 plugins. Help bring in the new era of desktop replacement.
Super love this one
Feature request: a microfade setting or fade in out (envelope) setting. Clicks and pops can be a problem other than that it adds such a nice movement to content.
No issues at all
Loving this app exactly what I was looking for! Sounds great, easy to use, no fuss! If any change I will edit later.
