A bitcrusher is an audio effect that produces a digital distortion by reducing the quality or bandwidth of digital audio data. The resulting quantization noise may create a "warmer" sound impression, or a harsh one, depending on the amount of reduction applied to your audio. The effect comes with several presets to choose from, so you can try out different settings to get the desired result you're looking for.You can apply the effect from the Audio Effects section of the Properties Panel.

Parameter Description

Bit depth

Determines the total number of bits (computer memory) used when processing the audio; reducing this value will cause audible distortion in the resulting signal and may also affect the volume of lower frequencies.


Determines the sampling rate of the effect. Reducing the frequency will degrade the accuracy of the digital signal typically causing high-frequency "aliasing" or artifacts in the result.
