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.

The Glitch Is Back
Once again back is the incredible port of Audio Damage's all time classic. Repeat it, stutter it, reverse it, pan it, filter it, sequence it, randomize it...freak it.
Disappointed you can’t upload or share your works with the effects
Don’t buy it. To be honest it does what it does, but you can’t upload your music on SoundCloud and iTunes to share online! What’s the point on getting it? If you can share your project? I want my money back!
Replicant is an insert effect; given that it only works with an inter-app audio host or as an AUv3, it is expected that you’d share your audio from the host, not within the effect itself. (Not to mention that sharing directly from an FSU effect to Soundcloud would be a good way to lose listeners.)
After the iOS 11 updates the only app that works reliably with GarageBand is the free one RoughRider2.
I purchased all their apps and only 2 seem to have any functionality. I have already reached out
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
