A Glitch in the system
Rooted in Sches’ Tantra effects plugin, Thorn’s Glitch Sequencer is a gleefully filthy step sequencing multieffects section comprising six rhythmically modulated audio processors: Gate, Low Pass and High Pass Filters, Bit Crusher, Sample Rate Reducer and Repeater.
The sequencer runs at rates from 1/32 to 4/1, through up to 16 steps. Each module is controlled by a single slider in each step, governing gate time, filter cutoff frequency, bit depth, sample Rate, and number (and thus speed) of repeats. Modules are switched in and out using the power buttons at the left-hand end, while the R buttons on the opposite side randomise the sliders in each lane. A choice of two Sync options have the sequencer retriggering with each new note, or after the amp envelope Release stage; and the global Mix control blends the wet output with the dry signal.
The Glitch Sequencer is utterly brilliant, whether you just want to add a bit of funky pulsation to a pad by flinging the Gate and filters around, or go all-out with the Repeater or distortion modules to construct a searing lead or bassline. The icing on the cake is that it can be placed pre or post FX, enabling reverb and delay tails to be included or excluded as you see fit.
The Glitch Sequencer is immense fun, and sounds mental
