Tor-Helge Skei has introduced fx_cutter, a freeware loop mangling utility in 32-bit VST plugin format for Windows based host applications.
The effect started out as a Cockos Jesusonic plugin (the format natively supported in Cockos Reaper), however the developer Tor-Helge Skei decided to convert all of his JS creations to VST plugin format and fx_cutter was the first tool to get the VST treatment. This of course is very fortunate for us non-Reaper users, since we’re getting a really cool beat mangling effect for free.
The plugin is currently available for 32-bit Windows plugin hosts only, but it seems that a 64-bit version will also be published after the developer irons out certain stability issues (there’s more info about the potential 64-bit release on the product page linked below). I’ve tested the VST plugin version of fx_cutter in MuTools MuLab (32-bit) and it worked without any issues whatsoever.
