Its cheap, and one of my favorite most overused effects,
I will get one when I start a Euro setup, even though I don't "need" it lol

I will also get a malgorithm to sit next to it.

Nice review Noisesouce!
Does it seem to anyone that most of the interesting effect of the module is happening at the highest sample and bit rates? It feels like as more CV is applied and as the effect dips down into the lower ranges it very quickly becomes a glitchy, grindy mud. Mostly not interesting or usable to my ears. I'm not sure if my module is calibrated differently because it's a trade show demo. I asked Deiter on the Doepfer group, but haven't heard back yet.

Yeah, I thought the same thing, but then again it may occasionally be useful to trek back and forth from the analog highlands to the digital swamp. ...Or maybe the glitchy mud could be an interesting CV source; like personalized digital noise!

We shouldn't forget about all the other modules that have some bit crushing ability; like the Mini-Wave,
or as demonstrated in the review: Logic can be an interesting source of mangling/bit reduction.
Sometimes I use the MetalBox Divider & Logic like this. It is really designed for sequencing gates and triggers, but it is always fun to 'misuse' modules for other functions. Combining different audio signals in Logic leads to some interesting timbral variations.

Anyone running guitars through this yet?

I've done some guitars. Maybe I'll try to run some and put some samples up

Zerosum, you asked for a demo with guitar.

Guitar through DIY pre-amp into Doepfer A-189-1. Stepping
through modes 1-16. No modulation used, please excuse the
cheezy guitar playing!
Rockin' Banana! Now I have an excuse to use this guitar playing banana!

Thanks for posting that applause
Feels good doesn it Mr. Green

I love how sample reducers can make ring mod sounds.

Some goofy melody from the cartoon? haha, I didn't notice.

no, but my cunningly trained daddy-ear did.
