Joachim's Chopper 2.2
Example of dry-wet mix.
Sequencing the decay curve shape
Slow automatic randomization (evolution/mutation) of the decay curve shape
Slow automatic randomization (evolution/mutation) of the bandpass filter frequency
This demonstrates the "step X ticks back in time" feature.
Slowly sweeping the bandpass filter frequency up
Slowly sweeping the bandpass filter bandwidth up
Example of changing the attack time.
You can also invert the action of the chopper so that it ducks the sound.
Randomized slowly evolving panning pattern.
All features going at once. This demonstrates how the 8 repeating ticks slowly evolve over time.

A gapper plug-in for Jeskola Buzz that features filters, de-clicker and a time travel feature.
- Dry/wet mix: Sets the mix ratio between the dry signal and the chopped up signal.
- Trigger: Everytime you set this parameter, sound is triggered. Large values keep the sound open for an entire tick, like traditional gapper machines. Shorter values result in a logaritmic decay curve.
- Customizable: This sets the value of the assignable parameter. You can specify what this column does using the "10" command.
- Frequency: Controls the butterworth filters. Center frequency of current gap being played. This has no effect if "Bandwidth" is set to the default maximum value "OFF".
- Bandwidth: The smaller then number, the more narrow the bandpassing of this frequency will be. Largest number effectively bypasses the filter.
- Attack: Changing the volume from one sample to the next can give a click. Increase this until you are not bothered with clicks. Too large values make the attack become dull.
- Travel back: Instead of letting the current sound through, you can go back in time and play previous stuff.
- Command: Set specific command. Commands are:
- 01: Reset all steps of the internal randomize pattern to 50%.
- 02: Reset the randomize pattern to a specific random seed (set by the next parameter).
- 03: Randomize the internal randomize pattern (new time every time you issue this command, next parameter is ignored).
- 04: Temporarily randomize relative to the internal randomize pattern (next parameter specifies how much).
- 05: Set the filter steepness (valid range is are 1-3).
- 06: The next parameter controls how much the randomize pattern affects the decay curve shape.
- 07: The next parameter controls how much the randomize pattern affects the filter randomization.
- 08: The next parameter controls how much the randomize pattern affects panning.
- 0A: Sets how fast the internal randomize pattern mutates over time.
- 0B: Chopper mode: 1=normal gating, 2=sidechain-like ducking of the signal.
- 10: This controls what the customizable column does. Currently only "1" (panning) is supported.
- Value: Specifies the value of whatever the Command column is set to.
- Rows per beat (attribute): If you use this plug-in with Pattern XP with a different Rows Per Beat setting than the default of "4", you should change this. When in doubt simply leave this at 4.
- Filter steepness (attribute): If you don't find the filter aggressive enough, increasing this will make the filter effect more drastic.
(revision $Rev: 45 $)
Version 2.2, June 2017: Fixed way to slow evolution/mutation speed. (Now, 4000 is "very slow", 8000 is "medium" and C000 is "quite fast")
Version 2.1, April 2016: Added new inverted mode.
Version 1.1, January 2011: Fixed output level bug when using trigger "80" multiple times.
Version 1.0, December 2010: Initial release.
