spectral bitcrushing (or other weird novel fft tricks)

ok, this isn't spectral bitcrushing, but spectral sample rate reduction. spectral bitcrushing sounds cooler as a name, so im going with that. (who knows, maybe its one of those things where sample rate reduction in one domain is bitcrushing in another?)

as it turns out, bitcrushing an fft just turns the signal into noise salad, but this effect reminds me very strongly of the sound effect in the matrix where neo is escaping the matrix and metal coats his throat and turns his voice digital.

this was initiated by a random response on twitter talking about FFTs that gave me an idea, possibly i'll continue posting here weird FFT things i come up with that don't really justify their own upload to the UL. if you have any feel free to post them here also!!
