Oldigy is a bit crusher that emulates the sound of low-resolution digital systems.

With Oldygy you can emulate the sound of old samplers, game consoles, phones, or simply add digital distortion to your sound.

Oldigy replaced Oldigy-T (track) in the Syntler product line. You can choose not only the bit depth but also the sampling rate.
  • SAMPLING RATE button - selecting the sampling rate. Depends on the current sampling rate of your DAW. From 3675 to 22050 for 44/88K and from 4000 to 24000 for 48/96K. Press the button repeatedly until the desired sampling rate is set.
  • BIT DEPTH button - selects the bit depth from 4 to 12.
  • NONLINE PCM button - you can use non-uniform pulse code modulation. This means that the compounder is included in the signal processing circuit. The input signal is compressed and the output signal is expanded. This increases the accuracy of the digitization at low signal levels and decreases the accuracy at high signal levels. This has a good effect on the signal-to-noise ratio. With Oldigy you can choose how much nonlinear modulation will affect the input signal. From 0 to 100 percent in increments of 25. In real devices there is no such possibility. This adjustment allows you to add the desired level of "digital dirt" more accurately.
  • FILTER button - Adjusts the depth of the adaptive filter. The filter softens digital artifacts depending on the level of the input signal.

This plugin is incredible. I am using it for old-school house basses, UK Rave leads and etc. If someone needs to emulate old-school 12-bit samplers' sound, this plugin is a perfect choice, especially with its filter turned off. The plugin works especially perfectly with simple subtractive synths.

I found this plugin to be very useful for getting a tape like sound. It's also good for taming some harshness in the high end. This is probably the best Bit crusher I've tried that doesn't give that ring modulation type of sound when you push it a bit. If you're looking for the nasty breakup and noise of typical bit crushers, then this isn't for you!

Very limited bit-crusher. I think that is a simple SynthEdit project. If anybody say "Oooh new SP1200 emulation over here, i probable rob his granny and poop on his computer keyboard"

You should know oldigy has one of the smoothest lowbit sound in the market. Just sayin'
