Slicex - Articulation Panel

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. Related plugins are the Fruity Slicer and Edison.

Master Panel

Articulation Panel

This panel controls envelopes, filtering, Mixer track output routing and other modulation effects applied to the Regions (slices).

Region settings

Each Region has a number of parameters that can be modulated by one of 8 sets of envelopes (Articulators).

Working with envelopes

The envelope editor allows you to create infinitely complex envelopes. Select the envelope target (upper row) and envelope source (lower row) tabs then edit the envelope as follows:

NOTE: To activate envelope select the switch as shown above. Deselecting it will disable the envelope.

Graphical Curve Editing

There are several basic operations for editing the envelope/mapping shape:

ADSR Envelope Knobs

Although many envelopes are pre-defined with 'attack', 'decay', 'sustain loop start' and 'sustain loop end' control points you can Right-click a control point to set control point types in the graphic envelope editor. Once control points have been defined, the knobs act as multipliers, for each section.

NOTE: When adjusting ADSR properties the display will preview the effect of the knob value on the envelope shape. Once the mouse key is released the envelope is restored to its previous view. This allows you to set a basic envelope shape and modify it quickly. Alternatively you are free to hand-draw the entire envelope.
