Slix Randomizing Loop Slicer For Windows

slix

De La Mancha has introduced Slix, a randomising loop slicer for Windows (VST), which switches between up to 4 loops and can shuffle, repeat, reverse and gate the slices of each loop according to user defined probability.

Load any 4 loops, sync them to tempo, slice them up and then set probabilities that each loop will play and for each randomising effect per loop. Even the randomness is randomised, with a parameter that varies the probability in a user defined range. slix was co-developed with sink, who also provided the included 295 original loops.

Features:

  • 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
  • Reorder – plays slices out of sequence for variation per loop
  • Repeat – stutter effect by repeating slices
  • Reverse – play the slice backwards
  • 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

Slix retails for $39. A loop free version is also available for download.
