Glitch VST from Illformed
I haven’t had a chance to install and check this out yet, but, this looks like a promising VST for doing glitchy drums! It was created by Kieran Foster, a programmer from England. I can’t wait to try this until when I get back home… If I ever do. I’ll update with samples when I am able to play with, however, there are sound samples on the site. Here is a description from the site.
Glitch features a pattern-based effects sequencer that takes the incoming audio, breaks it down into user-defined slices, and then applies different effects to each slice. The sounds it generates range from quite subtle to extremely bizarre, depending on how much you tweak the controls.
There are some other VST plugins for your perusal as well, check them out.

Mattahan is amazing, check out his website for some artwork similar to the style above; the style of AWESOME.
I’m also a huge fan of his Gant and Buuf icon sets, I’ve been using them for almost 3 years now for my dock icons.

You know, I think it’s quite unsatisfactory that the moon would pick such an early hour in the morning to eclipse. People have jobs, deadlines and other obligations preventing us from staying up all evening. If I could guess, the channeled spirit of “Ramtha” had something to do with this.
It’s about time we begin sending letters to the Moon to protest this outrageousty, surely preventing any further unwelcome lunar eclipse scheduling conflicts. It just so happens that a total solar eclipse will take place on 13-14 November, 2012. Cue up the tofu barbecue, tin foil hats and conspiracy theories: this one hasn’t happened since July 11, 1725. However, much like the sneaky tricks of the Moon, it will only be visible in countries such as Australia, New Zealand and Chile.
Start saving up to travel to one of these fabulous destinations, or, start transmitting the Sun staunchly and sternly worded letters demanding expanded coverage for other countries. The choice is yours.
