I understand that only 10 of these guys were ever made:

but I gotta get my hands on one of these. just a brilliant device.

have bugbrand made an modular equivalent of this? i see you can purchase the proprietary rights to the pedal for $1700. anyone in for a group buy?

Original Bugcrusher pedals pop up here from time to time...different versions that you can check on Bugbrand's old website! I have one with the built in LFO, great with either my modular or guitar or whatever you plug in it!

Aren't they just an oscillator clocking a sample and hold?

Yep, at audio rate.
From the FAQ :

Quote:
I’m not a big fan of sample-rate-reduction. Is there any other use for a BugCrusher module?
The PRC2 BugCrusher is, basically, a Sample & Hold module - traditionally these are used at low frequencies to create random clocked steps, but this version adds the Audio-rate option.

any other pedals that pull off a similar sample & hold sample-rate and glitch mangling?

Frostwave Sonic Alienator ?
