degrade~ – build your won

Hi all,
is there a patch floating around that does, what degrade~ does, but as a open patch?

Thanks all,

There’s a gen-based one in the Max6 examples folder.

One trick that I learned about on the forum for getting fractional bit reduction (ie 7bits) is multiplying a signal, then trunc~, then dividing by the same amount. You get the bit crushed thing, but smoothly variable. Very handy.

I’m on my iPad but ill try to post an example patch of that later when I get home.

Here’s the lofi module I use. It has sample reduction (just using degrade) but the bitcrush stuff is done outside of that (two flavors of it) and there’s some bitwise stuff in there too.

What a fun little patch! Great!

The full version I use has an mp3-ification effect too, but that’s outside the scope of degrade~ so I didn’t include it.

The larger patch that it comes from is here (free to download/edit/share):

Thanks all for your help,
that’s great.
