Replicas is a creative splice sampler that manipulates your audio with 3 simultaneous looped segments.
Inspired by vintage tape splicing techniques, Replicas samples incoming signals, rephrases, delays and pitch shifts the recorded material. With it, you can craft intricate melodic patterns, add extreme time-based effects or augment existing phrases with subtle nuances.
Add ambiences to guitar and piano phrases, glitch-wreck your beats or create repeating stutter effects to vocals. Most of all, Replicas is for experimentation. It can be pleasantly unpredictable and you never know what you might get!
