Image Line Slicex
Image Line has released SliceX as a VST plugin.
Until now, SliceX was exclusively available as a Fruity Loops Studio plugin -- a version that is not only still available but was also upgraded to 8.0.2 version.
According to Image Line, Slicex uses advanced beat detection algorithms to slice song/percussion samples into pieces and make them independently playable from the Piano roll or controller. If the wave file contains slice/region data this will be automatically used instead of the beat-detection algorithm. Slicex offers playback, reordering of slices and time-stretching capabilities optimized for drum loops.
SliceX is now available for $79.00 as a special time-limited offer, while the usual price is $99.00. As of right now, only the Fruity Loops and VST for PC versions are available, but standalone and Mac versions are also planned for a later (unspecified) release date.
