Random Chopper 1.0.0
Random Chopper is a modulation effect that processes the gain of the input signal using an adjustable modulation curve. Unlike other modulation plugins, Random Chopper enables you to randomize the parameters of that modulation curve. Depending on your settings, Random Chopper is not only a simple chopper plugin but can also be a tremolo effect, a rhythmizer, a distorter, a glitching effect and more.
- Choose a modulation speed between 0.1 and 100 hz, allowing you to create a wide range of different effects, from rhythmic or pulsing to glitchy or ringmodulator-like sounds.
- Configure individual shapes for the modulation curve using the parameters attack, release, relation, attack-shape, release-shape, and stairs.
- Apply randomization individually to the modulation speed, shape or depth and adjust the randomization for all parameters using the master randomization scale.
- Trigger launches at musical positions to introduce synced elements into a randomized modulation curve.
- Choose between three different methods for the generation of random numbers: signal, time, and sequence.
- Use the multi settings to combine different modulation curves into one resulting curve to create a complex, (poly)rhythmic or glitchy sound.
- Random Presets allow you to load parameter settings involving a random factor. Use them as a basis to make your own settings.

Support and FAQ

Although I cannot guarantee that I will implement these, suggestions on how to improve Random Chopper and ideas for new features are always welcome!

Unlike with VST2, the VST3 standard defines a fixed folder into which all VST3 plugins have to be installed. All DAWs load VST3 plugins from that path. The installation path is:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3
Windows SmartScreen warnings are a problem that many small software developers have to fight with. A SmartScreen warning does NOT mean that the file contains suspicions code but occurs when you try to execute a file that is seldom executed by windows users, for example when you are one of the first who downloads and installs a new version.
To install Random Chopper when you get a SmartScreen warning, click on More Info and then on Run. To protect the installer from malicious code, it is digitally signed. You recognize that signature at the publisher name Philipe Zenz on the SmartScreen.
Yes, AU and AAX versions are planned. However, they are not in development yet and I currently cannot tell when they will be done.Will Random Chopper become available for Mac OS
Yes, a version Mac OS is planned but not yet in development. Currently, I cannot tell when Mac OS will be supported.Why isn't Random Chopper available in VST2 format?
In October 2018, Steinberg discontinued supporting VST2. For that reason, VST2 plugins may no longer be released. These days, most DAWs have implemented VST3 support. If you're working with an older DAW version, I recommend checking if it can host VST3 plugins though.Why isn't Random Chopper available for 32-bit systems?
Due to the benefits of 64-bit systems, 32-bit has become quite obsolete and also some DAWS have stopped supporting 32-bit. For that reason, a 32-bit version is not included in the installer package. If you're nevertheless interested in a 32-bit version of Random Chopper, you may contact me.
