A challenge for all Nyquist plug-in authors.
Currently Audacity has a distortion effect, the mis-named "Leveller".
The Leveller effect can be useful in creating "aircraft pilot" and "Walkie Talkie" type voices along with other "Robot" voices and other effects where distortion is required.
with the Leveller effect is that it is not intended to be a distortion effect, it is intended to be a strong compressor/limiter effect (a job that is done with much better quality by the standard Compressor effect and/or the Nyquist Limiter
and/or other compressors/limiters. Distortion is just an unintended byproduct of the effect.The Challenge:
If the Leveller effect is removed from Audacity, then there is vacancy for a new distortion/robot voice effect to replace the Leveller.
This topic is for discussion about and proposed code snippets/full plug-ins for a replacement for the Leveller effect.
Contribution to this topic is not limited to Nyquist programmers. All users are welcome to contribute ideas regarding what they would like the effect to do.
