Make a smooth transfer from your current BPM to a new target one, over a specified number of bars. Simple and extremely useful - especially for the more adventurous DJs among you.

Rage Against the Glitch Machine
Our friends at Glitchmachines are masters of extreme sound manipulation - just see their Live Pack, Microsphere, for evidence. The recently-released Hysteresis is a free VST/AU plug-in effect for glitching up your sound. The signal chain includes stutter, delay, filter, and modulation (chorus/flanger/phaser) modules - now go wreck some audio.
