Buffre Beat Repeater

Buffre Beat Repeater is a creative effect device for Propellerhead Reason 6.5 that loops audio in sync with song tempo. Buffre is a performance effect, controllable in real-time from a MIDI keyboard or control surface, and supports Reason control voltage routings for creating modular-based stutter and glitch effects. The loop engine features several playback modes and can process audio segments from two measures down to a 4096th note.

Buffre features real-time reverse loop playback and sample rate control. Instantly add a backwards drum hit by switching to reverse mode, or adjust the pitch control to mimic the sound of a tape stop or spin up. Also, by capturing and manipulating extremely short audio loops, Buffre can synthesize granular audio textures.
