Float Crush is a new type of bitcrusher exploiting the nature of the floating point unit. It offers something the regular bitcrusher can't; a dual flavor distortion.
A floating point unit has three important segments to it, the sign, the exponent, and the mantissa. A normal 32bit float uses 23 bits for it's mantissa values and 7 bits for it's exponent.
What Float Crush does is applies quantization to the exponent and mantissa range of bits, the same quantization a normal bitcrusher would. But the difference is this creates a multistaged effect, where quantizing the mantissa range brings a soft, airy texture, and the exponent range which can completely 'rearrange' the sound.
Note: Float Crush uses the default GUI of your host (screenshot is the GUI in Cantabile)
