PATCH GROOVE Slicer

The Groove Slicer is a real time audio slicer. With this patch, you can cut a sound file into several slices and each slice can be played in acording the values of the num slice sequenced-steps.

Then you can use several live tools to create variations, changing in real time parameters as slices order, pan, pitch and reverse mode.

Slices can also be automatically created with a built-in beat detector.

Settings

global settings

play

Enables and starts the slice engine.

gain

Output volume.

  • 32th

slices detection

start detect

Starts the slice auto detection procedure according the speed and the threshold

thres

Threshold of peaks, to set the sensibility of the slices detection process.

speed

Minimum duration of a slice (during the auto detection process).

Slices

num slice

Represents the currently played slice number. You can randomize the play order (rnd) or reset it to its default (reset).

The length is set by length and synchro parameters.

ramp

Fills the num slice steps with an ordered ramp to play slices in the order.

slice pan

Panoramic of slices.

slice pitch

Pitch of slices.

slice reverse

If a step is on, the current slice is played reverse, forward otherwise.

Live Controls

This tab allows live manipulation of the current groove.

range

Slice range.

  • 0 : only the first slice is played
  • 1 : all the slices are played
  • 0.5 : the first half set of slices is played.
  • etc.

offset
