The Critter & Guitari Organelle is a computer that processes patches, each of which is capable of assuming a different form depending on the user’s preferences. The unit features onboard connections for sound I/O and assignable knobs, buttons, and keys for triggering samples, playing notes, and controlling effects. Custom patches can be edited in the Organelle or via computer and can be uploaded and shared between users, enabling nearly limitless inspiration and vast sonic potential.
Demoing the Grazer with a Critter & Guitari Organelle and a stratocaster plus using it with a expression pedal to control the pitch. The Grazer is a granular repeater and glitch machine, which builds sounds by continuously taking tiny samples from the input audio. The sounds range from off-kilter echoes, all the way up to harsh machine glitches.
