    I wanted to end a song link this instead of having the chords ring out. Was wondering if anybody knows a good way of doing it or a plug (mac, AU) that will do this effect.

    Pretty much looking for the entire mix to flicker in and out and then just cut off, like if you have a bad connection on a cable and shake it. Pretty sure everybody knows what I'm talking about.

    You can do that by hand if you group all tracks and cut chunks of audio out.

    Or use something like dBlue Glitch

    Yeah, but I'd like the buzz and hum effects as well, instead of just random chopped silence.

    Get someone to pull your cable out and plug in back in repeatedly while you record? :lol:

    Try negative limiting. Sounds really fucked up when abused.

    Unfortunately I don't have an amp or a guitar, or I would record something like this myself. I know a majority of you have an amp and mic set up already. :) Who wants to take 5 minutes of their time to record some buzz and then the unplugging of the guitar? Eh? Ehhhhh?

    There's probably samples of stuff like that to be found on freesound.org

    You dont even need a guitar to make them either, could be any old plug, or use a turntable and fuck the needle up and sample that.
