BadCable is a v2 AudioUnit which attempts to simulate a bad audio cable. The result is a form of waveform distortion. With some settings, the effect sounds like an FM broadcast when you're at the edge of reception (check out preset #2 "FM Edge").

NOTES:

The effect is rather dependent upon the average level of the incoming signal, so the Intensity parameter is designed with a very wide range to cover all possibilities, including very soft 24-bit signals.

Very high settings of Intensity will sound like a "cable" that is so "bad" is doesn't work at all :-)

AudioUnit (AU) enabled host.

This is exactly what I need.

I needed to simulate the effect of an FM car radio as it passes under bridges, into and out of skyscraper shadows, etc.

By simply tracking the FM preset through Soundtrack Pro and manipulating the intensity setting, I was able to get exactly the effect I needed.

I would hope that the author is willing to provide a Universal Binary version.

When a developer posts a niche market item, is it really necessary to flame him/her just because you are too moronic to figure out how it would be used?

Listen to modern music for any length of time and you will hear hundreds of effects like this incorporated into songs. This developer is providing a service by sharing something with other musicians.

I look forward to trying this out in garageband. Thanks for the free software.

Clauder's post is right on. The rest of you should drag your whiney butts under a rock.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I've been looking for something to distort those pesky high quality mp3 and AAC tracks I've downloaded and this is the just the thing!

No more good quality audio for me! This is seriously one of the best programs ever written. I can't show my appreciation enough.

I can't believe it's shareware. I've only got $250 but am more than willing to donate it to the developer.....just tell me how.
Once again thank you for such a useful and invaluable piece of software - I simply can't believe how happy am am right now.
