Reviews for BitRate I

If you have an interest in chip music and have Reaktor, just get this now… This is living the dream – the dirty, pixelated, large-grain-parametered, limited yet limitless dream which is working with 8-bit and lo-fi gaming audio devices.

Reviews for BitRate II & MonoBoy

BitRate II and Monoboy are two serious workhorses when it comes to 8bit/lo-fi sounds. The sound engines sound really good and the sampling option for own sound sources are phenomenal.
