Electrogene is a new intuitive & versatile bit-crusher AUv3 effect processor for iPhone/iPad developed by Georgi Georgiev (Vatanator)!

It’s rare that I update an article from 2018, when I started out. But there is a good reason. Georgi Georgiev, aka Backpullver Software, has updated its Electrogene bit-crusher AUv3 plugin for iOS and macOS. 

An AUv3 plugin that I like to use on iOS for sound design during performances. The latest free update includes some great new features.

The new update 1.1 adds a new saturation type selectable via a dedicated button. It also comes with a new bypass button for the crusher parameters. A very handy addition. 

Part of the update is also a new ability to change the drift mode type. This causes the audio to vibrate and make it less stable. I’m curious how different the mode is. Backpullver Software also fixed a bug regarding recording preset automation for the lowpass and high-pass filters.

Further, it comes with 10 new presets, performance, and UI improvements. 

Don’t forget that Electrogene is an iOS AUv3 plugin and a macOS Auv3 plugin on Apple Silicon computers. One purchase gives you both versions. But it requires an Apple Silicon computer.

I’m great to see that the developer continues to update the app after six years on the market and even adds features for free. The price remains the same, at $4.99, on the App Store.
