What is Bit Crushing?

Bit crushing is a digital distortion that takes your sound and bluntly and aggressively crushes it down into an 8 bit audio signal. As this process occurs many layers of harmonics are added to the sound, imbuing it with that unmistakable retro 8-bit quality that you hear in early retro consoles or modern chiptunes.
