de la Mancha has announced the release of slix, a multi-loop slicer that uses randomisation to switch between up to 4 different loops, each with their own randomised re-order, repeat, reverse and gating effects.
- Load any 16-, 24– or 32-bit, mono or stereo wav file into the 4 loop slots.
- 445 MB of original drum loop content (295 loops) by sink covering many electronic genres (breakbeat, dubstep, drum & bass, electro, 8 bit, lofi, vintage, IDM, FSU and glitch).
- Tempo-sync each loop by setting length in beats, allowing stretching or different lengths if desired.
- Choose any number of slices per loop.
- Slix plays when triggered by any MIDI note, with volume envelope per loop for fades.
- 4 effects with independent parameters per loop:
o Repeat – stutter effect by repeating slices.
o Reverse – play the slice backwards.
o Gate – add silent gaps into the loop.
- Variation range to randomise probabilities.
- Normalise and mono options per loop.
- Stereo-out and Multi-out versions (slix and slix 4×4).
- Single loop version (slix one) for simpler applications or lower CPU.
- 57 presets covering a range of sounds and styles.
Priced at $39, slix is available for Windows as a VST instrument plug-in.
