Electronic music producers (especially in Hip-Hop) have always been aware
that classic samplers (such as early Akai and EMU units) had a character
and sound of their own. They added a "grit" and "colour" to the samples
and loops they played back which made them sound "Fat" and sit well
in a mix.
This sound colouration was due to the encoding techniques, lower sample
rates, lower bit rate and conversion circuits which these early
Decimort recreates this colouration and adds the vintage sampler magic
to any loop, bass line or sound played through it. It also acts as the
perfect bit crusher with filter.
Low quality sometimes is desired
The Decimort effect unit is from the SilverLine collection of plugins.
It is a premium grade bit crusher. The complex and advanced signal
processing algorithms within Decimort simulate the behaviour of the
whole sampling path which exists in every AD/DA converter.
Decimort has no internal aliasing. The only aliasing effect present in
the system is the modelled aliasing of the classic samplers we modelled
when creating it. Undesired artefacts are not present in the processed
signal. Only wanted artefacts remain. A further very steep low-pass filter,
synchronised to the signal frequency, can be applied at the end of the
signal path to absolutely ensure that no unwanted out-of-band signals remain.
