Hi RT

This is a combinator effect, inspired by and emulates the Halftime VST from Cableguys - however goes a step further and adds some more features. It's all stock devices, however does require Peff's Buffre Rack Extension.

I don't usually make Combi's with 3rd party RE's - but I figured everyone surely has Buffre by now - and from what I've seen on this forum, it's just collecting dust. So I am hoping to breathe some new life into this amazing device, as it is the only RE (I believe) with a manageable buffer.

Back to this Combinator, it has the same controls as Halftime - where you lower the pitch and stretch all incoming audio, while at the same time retriggering the buffer so that the music stays in time.
At 75% of the speed and at high looping rates, you can create syncopated beats from standard 4/4 loops. There is also a Mix and X-Over knobs for blending the dry with the wet signal.

Where I have extended the feature set is;
- Stop button (tape stop effect)
- Reverse button
- Tape Compressor, Wobble and Noise
- Send FX with Delay or Reverb option.

All of this enables you to effect and layer your sounds in interesting ways, from simply thickening out a snare drum to adding new rhythmical layers to a piece of music or loop.

Hope you enjoy!
Cheers

Okay, you win. This is easily the best looking combi out there :D
I'm one of the few people who don't own Buffre and with the 95€ price I will most likely not get it.
But this seems like a very useful device!

Awesome hearing it being used! I've had a lot of fun trying it out on all sorts of material :)

Sho I didn't know Buffre was selling for that much.

I think RS should consider their creating their own buffer-based effect, for beat mangling but done in the typical RS way :)

I wanted Buffre, but not at that price. Have been waiting for quite a while to see if it would go on sale... didn't happen. I got Quadelectra's BeatChop Realtime Slicer instead during a sale, for around half its current price.

It's another one of those that I own but don't know why (and that I never use). Was it in one of the synth rigs or something?

this is great, and looks really good too. Played a drum loop for it just for a couple of minutes, and was getting some crazy Muslimgauze sounds, which I wasn't expecting. Definitely looking forward to putting it into use.
