2Rule TugGlicento is a free glitch multi-effects processor plugin with 5 effect sequencing lines for macOS and Windows
With the 2RuleSynth, the young developer 2Rule released an exciting free synthesizer plugin last year. Exciting because this surprised me with a very own, somewhat strange sound that I didn’t expect.
Today the developer is back with another free plugin. This time an experimental effect plugin that promises glitch effects.
TugGlicento is a new glitch multi-effects processor that can play multiple effects simultaneously. The concept of the plugin is very reminiscent of commercial releases like Sugar Bytes Effectrix or illformed Glitch 2.
It divides your audio signal into 5 bands. Each band features a multimode Moog Ladder-style filter (lowpass, bandpass, and highpass) with a dedicated ADSR envelope and syncable LFO. In the step you can send an effect to the band.
TugGlicento has a wide range of different built-in effects, including reverb, delay, chorus, decimator, distortion, phaser, pitch shifter, comb filter, repeater, vibrato, tremolo, and ring modulator.
Each effect has various parameters to adjust the timbres. For example, the reverb with room, damp, wet, dry, and width settings. Then, you can choose how these are used. You can either tweak them manually, like classic effects, or animate them with the five sequencers.
Each sequencer line can have variable beats (steps), speed, and duration. This allows to create very complex and versatile rhythmic effects. These goes from subtle changes to the desired glitch effects that the plugin promises in the headline. For each line, you also get dedicated volume and pan controls.
Besides, ready-to-use presets, 2Rule also has a built-in randomizer per band with which you can generate fast, randomly based results with one click. A nice source of inspiration for new ideas.
At first glance, it looks like an exciting sequencing multi-effects plugin. From the features, it could be a no-brainer alternative to Effectrix and other sequencing effects.
2Rule TugGlicento is available now as a free download and runs as a VST3 plugin on macOS and Windows.
