Pisscutter is a free VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.
PISSCUTTER features SynthEdit’s chunky Phase Distortion Oscillator, which offers two separate waveforms. It is similar to Casio’s CZ digital synths of the 1980s and is capable of producing a wide range of usable timbres with relatively few controls. Whilst CZ synths relied solely on phase distortion to create sounds, PISSCUTTER also has a flexible filter section to enhance it’s potential. Low-Pass (12 or 24dB/Octave slope) and Band Reject (Notch) filters can be mixed in mono or, by using the new X-Pan feature, in a full stereo signal path.
A new Modulation Envelope features multiple interpolation methods and can be looped for long pads. There are two separate overdrives in the signal path and a single LFO is augmented by a couple of new modulation sources. The Sweeper is a specialised LFO and the Randomator (there are two of these) offers random variation to many settings, for a more human/natural feel (or craziness).
