SCB-10 | Bitcrusher Pedal

$60

Keep It On The Lo-Fi

Whether you want your guitar to sound like it's being played through a 1980's gaming console, or you want to add some vintage synth qualities to your tone, the SCB-10 Crush Bit pedal is a great way to do it. The Crush Bit uses 2 popular types of "crushing" technology; Sample Rate Reduction and Resolution Reduction. For example, the sample rate of a standard audio CD is 44.1 kHz. That means, every second, over 44,000 snapshots of the audio signal are captured. Compare that to the popular Speak & Spell toy from the 1970's that used 8 kHz sampling. Imagining your favorite song being processed and played back through a Speak & Spell is a prime example of Sample Rate Reduction. Audio Resolution is very similar to video and photo resolution. A low-res photo looks grainy and not quite accurate. When you reduce the resolution of audio, the same thing happens. You lose some details like dynamic/volume threshold levels andtonal nuances. Sound too sciency? Plug it in and see how boopy and boppy your tone can get. If anything, you'll have a lot of fun.
