Real Time Glitch Performer

Relevant Content:

glitchTrak is a real-time glitch performance plug-in. It creates controlled glitches on selected samples. It is designed to be used with a GameTrak controller.

Performer can select the duration they want to loop on the sample. It can be a very tiny amount or a big chunk of the sample. Performer can slide the selected loop zone wherever they want inside the sample or extend it or shrink it. Performer has total control on the playback speed (perceived as pitch changes) and the amplitude. Moreover performer can jump between different samples at will (or constantly which is our favourite) by keeping the already set glitch duration.

In the video example, a selection of door samples are loaded for a live performance collaborative project called Push. All door samples are recorded specifically recorded.

In the second video example glitchTrak can be heard in action. It is performed live in a collaborative project. Performance starts once the doors start not opening.
