Micromanaged bitcrushing from an iconic multi‑effects processor.

Featuring gritty bitcrushing, lo-fi multi-effects, and analog filtering, the OTO BISCUIT 8‑bit Effects processor is a modern cult classic. This French-made box quickly gained favor with EDM producers, DJs, and remixers with its lush soundscapes, distortion, waveshaping, pitch shifting, and the desire to mangle and destroy everything in its path.

Developed by Softube, and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces, the OTO BISCUIT 8‑bit Effects plug-in is an exacting emulation of both the digital and analog circuitry of the hard-to-find hardware that lets you deconstruct with endless creativity and depravity.

Now You Can:

Bitcrush and distort any sound into lo-fi, 8‑bit craziness

Add life to sterile beats with subtle or over‑the‑top distortion

Enhance character and warm up sources with analog filters

Breathe life and movement into synths and more with the Step‑Filter

The Crushing Truth

The Crushing Truth

The OTO BISCUIT 8-bit Effects plug-in has all the features you need to creatively mangle your sources on a bit-per-bit level. Invert or mute individual bits for a wide range of classic to twisted lo-fi effects, add chiseled crunch to kick and snare drums for instant character, or dial down the sample rate clock to generate funky, trashy aliasing textures on any instrument.

Analog Filtering

Analog Filtering

After BISCUIT has done its digital demolition on your signal, use the analog filter to smooth out more aggressive elements of the distortion and aliasing. These filters are also useful for subtle warming and tone shaping, as well as more in-your-face textures and real‑time tweaking.

Four Lo-Fi Effects

Four Lo-Fi Effects

The Waveshaper, with its impressive selection of wave types, can transform a synth bass or vocal line into a complex, ear-catching hook, while the Delay — which offers five seconds of delay time — can be synced to the host tempo for unique sounding repeats. Finally, the Pitch Shifter adds subtle weight and dimension, or full-on video game-style blips, while the Step-Filter lets you easily incorporate rhythmic elements full of sonic surprises for movement and texture.

lo-fi heaven

This can help your lifeless soft synths come to live. There are so many organic and dirty textures on this thing. I bought it shortly after trying it. It can be very musical as well. I'm happy that UAD released a creative tool like this, not another mixing tool, now I can track with it in my apollo and print it in my DAW. Love it.

This is a fantastic sound design tool

I bought this a few minutes after trying it. It's simply unreal. So many organic dirty textures on this thing and it's super versatile, it can be very musical as well and can warm up digital synths very good. It's just great that I can now track with this effect in my apollo and print it in my DAW. Finally a very textural and creative effect on the UAD range, not just mixing tools.

Textures

I dropped the Biscuit on a drum buss aux send and it itstantly and easily added textures, grit and delays that I've never heard before. It seems to be targeted for EDM but I do HipHop and I will be using this beast.
