How to Acheive That Choppy, Computerized-Sounding “Glitch” Effect

The “glitch” effect. Yes, the “choppy” computerized-sounding guitar effect I've fallen in love with. Sure it’s unconventional, maybe even overkill, but who cares? It sounds different. The effect is tremolo, and in its most basic form can be achieved by using a simple pedal or plugin. Basic tremolo pedals will provide you with depth, wave and rate adjustments. Those are pretty much all you need.
