If the tool we discussed above was very simple, this next one shows that not all the tools for LoFi hip hop come in simple forms; challenge accepted! The Decimort 2 is an impressive plugin that is designed to give you reliable use. It is a very advanced bit crusher that works particularly to compress, scrap and degrade the original sound.
Decimort 2 has an excellent audio quality despite all its destructive power: I have not yet encountered a bitcrusher with such a distinctive, contour-rich sound. Different quality levels are available, but even in the absolutely livetable and resource-saving normal mode, sound and resolution leave nothing to be desired.
In modern music production, high fidelity digital recording/digital sampling is taken for granted. With technology readily available that can reproduce audio well beyond the theoretical fidelity of the CD standard, audio engineers and enthusiasts are free to debate what are the best high-end digital audio converters and designs, as well as the benefits of high sample rates all the way up to 192 kHz.
My first experience using a bitcrusher was in 2004 when I started using Ableton Live music production software. It included (actually still does include) an effect called Redux, which can be used to lower the bit depth as well as the sample rate of any audio passing through the effect. I would use it on keyboards, guitars, and drums, and I always had a knob on my MIDI controller mapped to the sample rate parameter, because I thought it sounded cool to sweep the sample rate value.
The Destroyer modulation machine in Mobius features a bitcrusher with selectable bit depth (from 32 bits down to four bits) and sample rate (from 96 kHz to 750Hz). Modulate the sample rate and/or bit depth with the built-in LFO, or connect an expression pedal to sweep through values. In addition to bitcrushing, the Destroyer setting on Mobius includes switchable vinyl noise (with record rotation speed selectable from 33 1/3 to 78rpm), as well as a collection of filters inspired by telephones, victrolas, am radios, bull horns, and other gadgets.
Create new versions of audio clips to add more creative freedom to clip-based editing. Use multiple versions of a clip that references the same audio file to try alternative edits with Melodyne, Bend Markers, or Gain Envelopes to dial in just the effect you need.
View your tracks in different editors side-by-side! Multiple editor windows in Studio One® can now be detached from the main window and positioned freely, including on separate monitors. Similar to plug-in windows, the detached Edit windows can now be pinned to lock their view state.
For example, to maintain a set PSI or flow rate on a pumping system, a VFD can be used to automatically accelerate or decelerate the pump to meet the immediate demands of the system. Or on Hammer Mills and large cone crushers, like those found in a Metso HP4, the VFD can be used to increase torque when a load surge requires more output from the motor for a short amount of time.
In plants, abiotic stress reduces energy through metabolite conversion (Zhu, 2016). Water deficit causes sucrose and raffinose accumulation to protect the plants from drought stress (Peters et al., 2007). However, S fumigation significantly decreased sugars such as sucrose, fructose, and raffinose in cucumber, probably due to the decreased photosynthetic efficiency after S fumigation, although the molecular mechanism remains unclear. This study indicates that proline, a free amino acid, was significantly upregulated in cucumber leaves upon S fumigation. Free amino acids regulate plant stress by maintaining stable osmotic pressure in plants (Rodriguez and Redman, 2005). However, this hypothesis needs to be further explored.
The increased SOD and POD enzyme activities in cucumber leaves denote that S fumigation caused the production of free radicals. Excessive oxygen free radicals in plants react with lipids, nucleic acids, and other metabolites, causing lipid peroxidation, membrane damage, and enzyme inactivation (Gill and Tuteja, 2010). Previous studies proved triglyceride as the main product of lipid oxidation in cucumber (Feussner et al., 1997). In this study, triglycerides were significantly upregulated in cucumber leaves and fruits after S fumigation, indicating that S fumigation caused lipid peroxidation. Additionally, various lipids were significantly downregulated by S fumigation. The metabolite correlation analysis showed that lipids were positively correlated with various sugars and glycosides and negatively correlated with several organic acids under short-term S fumigation. However, long-term S fumigation reversed this correlation trend in leaves. Studies have shown that stressed plants accumulate organic acids to improve resistance (López-Bucio et al., 2000). Therefore, the increased contents of organic acids in cucumber after short-term S fumigation enhanced resistance, while resistance was weakened by long-term S fumigation.
I am obsessed with cookie recipes. Probably because I am a horrid baker. Good cook, bad baker. But, cookies? Cookies I can do. In fact, I have become quite the cookie baker. I decided to do a gluten-free cookie recipe because I have a few friends who are gluten-free and I love to share cookies. Also my doctor wants me cut back on the gluten, so I figure these cookies are a win-win. Besides, my family and I are OBSESSED with white chocolate cookies. So I just had to make these white chocolate thumbprint cookies.
When I made my gluten-free white chocolate thumbprint cookies for my friends they flipped out. Seriously. They are that good. I promise your friends that are not gluten-free will love them too. They have butter and white chocolate. I mean, how bad could they be?
Terrorhurtz was designed and built by the captain of Team Hurtz, 58-year old Oxford-based freelance design engineer John Reid, who also drove Terrorhurtz in all of its battles. In Series 5 and 6, John Reid was joined by his Killerhurtz teammate Dominic Parkinson who operated Terrorhurtz's axe, with Dominic's wife Iona also appearing in Series 5, and a single battle of the Sixth Wars.
Ming 3 then managed to breach Terrorhurtz's ground clearance as it swerved in on the turn, but it got under Terrorhurtz at an angle which meant that its beak was in the wrong position to crush down on the top of Terrorhurtz. Ming 3 still adapted to the situation though, as it brought its crusher down onto one of Terrorhurtz's side skirts and dragged it backwards. Suddenly though, Matilda hurtled out of her CPZ and clattered into the back of Ming 3, which mangled Ming 3's rear armour and left it immobilised over a flame jet. Terrorhurtz was also unable to retreat, as it was balanced on Ming 3's wedge, which left its wheels suspended above the arena floor. Refbot and Dead Metal then came over to separate the two, with Terrorhurtz finally moving away after untangling itself from Dead Metal. With the battle approaching a judges' decision, Matilda came in with one more attack, adding further damage to the already mutilated back armour of Ming 3. Finally, cease was called, with the judges called to make a decision. However, due to Matilda's unfair interference, the judges only took into account what happened in the battle up until the House Robot damaged Ming 3. This wasn't enough to help Ming 3 avenge the damage inflicted by Matilda though, as the judges went in favour of Terrorhurtz, which progressed to the second round as a result.
Terrorhurtz parked itself in a notably close position to Fluffy before the battle began in an attempt to drive at Fluffy straight away and keep the speed of its weapon down. When activate was called, Terrorhurtz immediately came onto the attack, and axed the top of Fluffy multiple times. Fluffy then went on the retreat, dodging further axe attacks from the pursuing Terrorhurtz in the process. Suddenly, Fluffy turned around and crashed into the side of Terrorhurtz that didn't have the "Fluffy launch device". One large blow from Fluffy's spinning axe ripped off Terrorhurtz's side plate and cracked open its gas valve. Terrorhurtz was left crippled and unable to move freely, which allowed Fluffy to come in with further attacks.
Finally, Refbot came over and counted Terrorhurtz out, before Sir Killalot took Terrorhurtz over to the floor flipper, where it was thrown through the air. Shunt then pierced the underside of Terrorhurtz and lifted it up with his scoop, before placing it into the Pit of Oblivion. Embarrassingly for the House Robot, Shunt's axe was still impaled on Terrorhurtz as he pitted it, and because he was unable to wriggle his weapon free from the beaten machine, he ended up driving himself into the pit with Terrorhurtz. After this, cease was called, and Terrorhurtz exited the competition.
With its tail gone, Terrorhurtz was unbalanced, and consistently reared up from this point on. Terrorhurtz decided to move into space before trying to drive at Sabretooth again, but once more, Terrorhurtz's front was sent upwards from a hit by Sabretooth. Terrorhurtz freed itself from Sabretooth by firing its axe after it landed on top of its opponent, while Sabretooth began to emit smoke, which saw its spinning drum cease to function. Suddenly, as Terrorhurtz tried to put pressure on Sabretooth, its left-hand wheel locked up. Without its weapon, Sabretooth tried to push Terrorhurtz, with John Reid using Sabretooth's close-quarters style to try to land an axe blow while on the turn.
Terrorhurtz chased the retreating Apex around the arena, but put itself into danger, as a misfired swing of the axe carried Terrorhurtz over and into Shunt's CPZ. Despite this, Terrorhurtz composed itself quickly, and forced Apex towards the Arena Spikes. Terrorhurtz was temporarily impaled after one of the spikes shot up behind one of Terrorhurtz's polycarbonate panels, but after it was freed, it had become clear that Apex was immobile. Terrorhurtz spun around and swung its axe in a victory dance, and its route through to the Heat Semi-Finals was confirmed. 1e1e36bf2d
