Beat Twist is a new freeware loop manipulation VST that SonicXTC says provides amazingly creative ways to transform boring or stale wav files into something special. It has a built in bit crusher unit, distortion unit (with bit reduction), overdrive, and step sequencer. The built in LFO can be used to modulate volume, bit crusher pitch, overdrive, and panning.
A spokesperson told us, "Lets face it. There are a gazilion loop libraries available on the market and free to download. However, it can take a ton of time to wade through loop libraries just to find a single loop suitable for a song. Having an easy tool capable of tweaking wav files to perfection is worth its weight in gold. Beat Twist is that tool. It is easy to create unique loops that are all your own with Beat Twist. Works wonders on beats and musical phrases!"
