  • Playable via MIDI
  • Advanced internal automation system
  • Independent automation speed and length per knob
  • Effect signal flow is dynamically re-ordered as you play

  • Buffeater allows you take live audio and tweak elements of the sound such as time and pitch, while controlling he signal flow of the effects by the order in which you play. With Buffeater, you can easily achieve stutters, glitch, beat repeat/juggling and/or chopped and screwed effects.

    Buffeater is the perfect way to obliterate sound and rebuild it into a sonic super hero.
    This sh** is sick...I need it.
    After a just few minutes with Buffeater, I am completely sold. I look forward to abusing many, many more audio files with this phenomenal granular effect.

    Buffeater makes me wonder what the guys from Twisted Tools will come up with next. It can slice and dice loops until they turn into effects themselves. Twisted Tools is pushing the boundaries within Reaktor to the limit.

    Buffeater is a little beauty. Exciting mangling effect at your fingertips, versatile and easy to use. We love it, what more can you ask? Another rock solid release from Twisted Tools….Bravi!
    Producers / Rephlex Records
    Twisted Tools has taken real-time granular processing to the next level with Buffeater a dynamically ordered granular multi-fx ensemble. The real-time interaction is ridiculous with the internal automation and automation recording. This some of the most fun I have had in a long time.

    The cool factor is turned up HIGH on Twisted Tools' new Buffeater multi effect for Reaktor. I am a tremendous fan of all this company's products, because their tools can twist sounds around like nobody elses!
