Record your voice and Cut-Up Machine will rearrange your words to make them say something totally different! Record tracks of noise to make beautiful glitchcore soundscapes. Record nature sounds and make your own rainfall machine that isn’t an annoying repeating loop.
You choose the length of the cuts — from three seconds long (several words) down to just a tenth of a second (a fragment of a syllable).
You can get really creative and play two cut-up tracks at the same time for some very cool effects. And if you want more, you can instantly upgrade to four tracks with in-app purchase.

Some kind of a glitch 5 track groovebox.
For each track you may assign volume, pan, gate, speed (pitch), attack and decay times.
Also there is a master effect unit with LP distortion, digital lofi effect, and a short delay.
The interesting thing (which differs this app from other grooveboxes) is shuffle editor. You may define overall shuffling pattern in addition to common beat pattern. So you could make some jazzy grace notes and non staight beats.
There is some kind of an automation for pitch. You could setup it’s variation to bring more life into your beat sequence.
The word “lite” means it has NO RECORDING (only pattern saving) and song editor yet.
Stay tuned for updates!
