Ah, mind telling me what bit crushing is? :D
In very very short description, you have a digital sound signal that sounds like a series of complex sine waves, but its all made up of very fine square waves that it sounds non-squarey to our ears, effectively 0's and 1's (open or closed). Pretty sure its called pulse code modulation. Anyways, bit crushing alters the signal speed, where at extremes either sounds ilke its not present, or you start hearing the rough square-clickityness. Most bit crushers have options though that will alter the sound to be less harsh, but still degraded sounding.
Sorry for double post and completely unrelated topic, but I have now seen that people use peak controller for sidechaining. Me, the weird guy I am, have been using Gross Beat's sidechain thing and playing around with it. Has anyone else here used it? O_o
Checked it at a friends, I find gross beat pretty overwhelmingly useless. It can work for side chaining a single track thats not dynamic or changing, but I'm pretty sure it uses more processing then the peak controller and that alone if you have like 10 of them in a song is a strong enough reason for my to shy away from gross beat.
Plus I'm running FL 8, so that hinders me from using gross beat too. :P
PM SessileNomad to link you to his review of grossbeat on youtube. It's a good angle to hear on the VST.
