Description: The College Dropout is a random audio dropout (and pitch drop) effect.

There are a lot of great analog tape effects out there, but I was looking for something a little more specific in an audio dropout effect, so I came up with this.

This effect has scalable depth for the channels (with 0 being a complete volume drop and 1 being no drop), the ability to adjust the length of the random ramp up/down time, and the option to select a curved rate for the drops.

There's also a no-latency pitch-shifting option (cassette) and a stereo/mono switch. The mono setting doesn't make the signal itself mono; it just makes the two channels share the same dropout curve.

The Smooth dial is a ramp smoother. When a dropout is triggered, the ramp automatically resets itself, so the Smooth dial can even out the sudden volume transitions for high-probability settings.

The Drop dial is activated when you turn the Cassette function on. This lets you dictate how deep the pitch shift will be.

There's also a Test button to trigger both of the dropouts (or, if you set it up to a midi controller, you can manually throw in some dropouts).

Try it out. Have fun with it. Send me an email if you can think of any good improvements for it or if you have questions.
