OTO® BISCUIT 8‑bit Effects
OTO® BISCUIT 8-bit Effects
Injects life into sterile sources / best bitcrushing
Until the OTO, bitcrushing was something I didn't do very often; I'd hear bitcrushing in professional tracks and wonder "why can't I get those sorts of lush crushed tones?". I had demo'd a bunch of different bitcrushers, and installed some free ones; none of them really scratched my 'crushing itch.
Then I discovered the OTO 8-Bit Biscuit... WOW. Now my other software bitcrushers sit there, sad and lonely, unused. As other reviewers have pointed out, it does incur a hefty cost in terms of SHARC chip resources, but well worth it for the life it injects into any source, and the incredibly-pure bitcrushing available.
One of my favourite purchases to date.
it's a great plug in, low-fi sound is awesome, and it has many tools to modify the sound..just one tiny flaw, it's not exactly a light plugin, but it's worth it.
indispensable tool, for any edm producer
man lovee this tool on loops,snare,kicks you name it,i gave it one star less because of the dsp it takes of the uad2 card
Great creative tool
Great creative plug-in for sculpting your sounds and songs
I never knew how much I missed out until now...
The original hardware unit is owned by quite a few of my friends who are a part of the now wildly popular lo-fi hip-hop scene, but I always ignored and dismissed the unit as another trendy audio device that will pass.
Besides, isn't there all sorts of plugins that can do this stuff, Right? I was wrong... very wrong. The OTO Biscuit plugin changed my perspective in ways I never entertained before. I highly recommend it to anyone!
Wild and unique
I have all of the UA plugins, and this is completely different. Really cool effects and noises, love it! Useful tool for electronic music producers. :)
Pretty fun for guitar
This one surprised me. I mainly use UAD plugs for guitar and got this one on a whim because I'm running out of modulation/special plugs to get from UAD. This can do some fantastic non-bitcrushing sounds. Drive is majorly bland and the filter is generic - get the Moog filter for that stuff. Softtube never seems to get these aspects right but the rest of the plug is very useful.
Real one sounds Better than Demos??
These FRENCH girls know how to bake COOKIES
Im in a relationship with BISCUIT also
Most underrated - i love it
I thought this is just a bit reducer..but it's a great tool to freschen up sounds...love the filter and delay. I was tired of more vintage compressors or eq's - this is a grea new direction for uad
GREAT BUT NOT SO GREAT AS THE HARDWARE
It looks great and you can get an awful lot of great sounds of this plugin. But compared to the hardware i own, it's got less "balls" especially the DRIVE knob. This drive makes everything come alive. I am a huge UA fan but this one thing just doesn't cut it. Will be using the hardware and not this plugin because of that. Hope they will update this one soon!
What an amazing plug in. UA please give us more like this!
I have not tried the hardware which is no longer available however this plug is now part of my go to plugs regardless of vendor.
Sound quality superb, the modulation delay filtering crushing etc possiblilities are literally endless.
Super easy to find dynamic , musical, freaky creative effects on any part and to bring interest otherwise dull parts .
Use on anything synths,bass,vox,drums,loops it will transform the part to cut through any mix, use with midi controller for mind blowing live performance

Absolutely spot on emulation!
I've been using the original for a few years now and was shocked when I saw this, and skeptical. After A/Bing I can tell you they modeled the filter and converters spot on. For any veteran users of the hardware, one of the quirks was if you add very little gain starving the drive, it calm most gates the sound, I was floored that they captured this, incredible.
Never owned the hardware version of this but can safely say, this is the best sounding bit crushing plug-in I've ever heard but also the most in-depth too.
Lots of possibilties and choice. All in all, a big thumbs up.
Use to own one now i own one again...
Fun on the fly
I owned the hardware version of Biscuit and loved the hands-on live manipulation capabilities. The Softube/UAD version has the same feel, especially if you assign parameters to a MIDI controller. Still a unique take on filtering and mangling. Cannot imagine life without this.
This is a real creativity enhancer. A awesome modern, classic, sound design engine! A must have.
Probably the best FX plugin I've ever tried. Brings life to electronic productions like nothing else.
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.
