Slicex - Keyboard

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.

Keyboard controls

Use the keyboard to preview & assign sliced regions to notes. This display simulates a Piano keyboard using stepsequencer-like pads in the place of keys. The region to key assignments set here affect how Slicex will respond to external note input also. NOTE: While the keyboard may look like the stepsequencer, it does not function as one, it is a preview keyboard only.

Piano roll deck control

The Piano roll note colors can be used to control Decks 1 & 2 independently. As shown below even note colors play Deck 1 and odd note colors play Deck 2. Colors 15 & 16 are special 'reverse playback' colors. Remember that note colors represent MIDI channels 1 to 16 so you can access the same functionality from a properly configured MIDI controller.
