The Chocolate Grinder

The Chocolate Grinder is a software emulation of a skipping/glitchy CD player.
You can record (or drop a waveform) into a buffer and then define a playback/glitch window.

It uses authentic skip/glitch samples at every jump point along with weighted randomness of sample choice to emulate several makes/eras of CD players.

The seek/fastforward is also faithfully recreated.

Requires Max6 and Alex Harker externals.

It’s built for and well integrated with the Monome Arc2/Arc4 but can be used with any MIDI controller as the app has built in MIDI learn.

Built entirely in Max6 with all the sample accurate timing/skipping/glitching done in Gen.
