The College Dropout 2 is the audio slacker simulator. With this, you can replicate the heartwarmingly crappy random volume dropouts and pitch warping effects from your favorite pieces of janky analog trash.
Yeah, there’s a bunch of really nice tape effects out there, but I wanted something with deeper customizable controls for the volume drop, and a pitch-dropping/wow & flutter effect that was more organic sounding and didn’t have the latency issues some other devices had when warping.
There are three primary modes for the effect
– Tape (volume drop)
– Vinyl (pitch drop)
– Failure (volume and pitch drop)
You can also set the left and right channels to operate individually or in unison with the Stereo/Unitary button.
ControlsProbability – Chance of a dropout triggering.
Depth – How far the dropout will go (100% drops the audio out completely).
Downtime – How long it takes for the dropout to reach its minimum.
Uptime – How long for the dropout to return to its default.
Gap – How long the dropout stays at its minimum.
Curve – You can dial in either a linear dropout rate or add a curve factor to the dropouts.
Smooth – Smooths out quick transitions to prevent fast rate jumps. (Useful for high probability settings.)
Drop – How deep the pitch dropping effect goes.
Hiss – Tape hiss effect.
