D16 Decimort 2 | Bit-Crushed Magic from Vintage Samplers
Decimort recreates the coloration and adds the vintage sampler’s magic to any sound. Electronic music (especially Hip-Hop) producers have long been aware that classic samplers (such as early Akai and E-MU units) had a character and sound all their own: they added a “grit” and “color” to the samples and loops they played back which made them sound “fat” and sit well in a mix. This sound coloration was due to the encoding techniques, lower sample rate, and bit depth, and conversion circuits used by these early samplers. Decimort recreates this coloration and adds that vintage sampler magic back to any loop, any bassline, or any sound played through it for that matter! Beyond vintage sampler emulation, it’s also the perfect bit-crusher with filter, capable of extreme settings for dramatic results.
D16 Decimort 2 in one take

- Approximative (pre) filter and Image (post) filter, both conjugated with resampler
- Adjustable jitter
- Quantization with controlled dithering
- Two quantization methods (mid-raiser, mid-tread)
- Analog-like filters with adjustable resonance and cutoff
- Tag-based preset browser
- Two alternative GUI sizes
- MIDI-learn functionality throughout
- 64bit internal processing
The Highest Quality Low-Quality Effect You Can Buy
The Decimort effect unit (available as part of the SilverLine collection of plugins from D16) is a premium grade bit crusher and sample rate reducer with some highly unconventional features. The advanced signal processing algorithms within Decimort simulate the complex behavior of the entire sampling path that exists in every AD/DA converter, and with version 2 comes far greater control over the process! Decimort has zero internal aliasing—in fact, the only aliasing present is the emulated aliasing of the classic samplers D16 modeled when creating it. Unwelcome artifacts are completely absent in the processed signal: only the desirable, modeled ones remain.
Bit Crushing with Endless Control
Decimort isn’t just another bitcrusher with only bit resolution and sampling frequency to tweak; in fact, it provides far more advanced features than you likely could have ever expected from an effect of this kind, all implemented in stunning quality. All this adds up to a very powerful and musical tool which is not only another creativity-releasing item for your arsenal but one that gives you the ability to emulate classic sampling units in-the-box—now with even greater precision through access to a variety of parameters unavailable up till now in effects of this type!
Two In One
Decimort is also equipped with analog-like filters with adjustable resonance that allow further sculpting of the signal. These can be used to smooth the sound or remove sonic artifacts introduced into the signal path by the modeling process to your taste.
