Bitspeek is an original pitch excitation (vocoder type) effect based on a linear prediction-based speech coding algorithm. You may have never heard of linear prediction (LP), although many of us use it on a daily basis when talking on a cell phone. LP coding is a voice compression technology that appeared in commercial products in the seventies and was implemented in some of the well-known talking toys of the eighties. Bitspeek works by analyzing some of the characteristics of the original audio, such as pitch and formants, and then resynthesizing it using an oscillator, noise, and filter in combination.
Changes in v1.0.2:
Changed to Stereo I/O configuration (although the effect is monophonic).
Improved compatibility with older VST 2.3 hosts and wrappers.
Many other minor compatibility improvements.
