10. bt.Cr bit crush

This parameter specifies how many least significant bits should be set ("crushed") to 0, assuming a 16-bit (~96db) nominal dynamic range. Loss of bit-depth will become audible for most humans at around 7 or 8 bits of loss. The effect is typically audible as a quintessential "hiss" in quieter parts of an instrument's decay or release stage, and evokes the quintessential sound of early 80s digital drum machines.

To faithfully emulate the sound of vintage digital audio reproduction circuitry, the bit crushing is performed right after oscillator synthesis and before filtering, effects, dynamics or mixing.

Please note that bit crushing should not be confused with sample rate reduction (for which your Woovebox proovides two other settings/methods).
