Skank is a simultaneous effect prozessor. It scales pitch, distorts, ring and/or pulse-width modulates and echoes incoming audio. One-of-a-kind features like: delay buffer can be held and played back at precise frequencies on the Western 12-tone scale. Pitch scaler transforms over a wide range ( -24 <-> +103 semitones) and possesses adjustable portamento capability. Distortion is *very* touchy and sounds like there's some kind of bug in it. In fact, the whole thing is grundgey and crazy.

You adjust the 14 effect parameters in real-time using MIDI controller messages. The controller numbers are compatible with Brian Whitman's Hedgehog if you would to change effects rapidly in synchronization with a MIDI clock. I also recommend you take a look at his program Tractor Pull if you would like to send 8 LFO's of controller messages!
