Oscillicious has announced the release of version 1.4 of BeatCleaver, a major update to the beat slicer for Windows and Mac. New features include a state-of-the-art audio editing engine, automatic tempo detection, and slice-to-MIDI functionality.

Oscillicious BeatCleaver

BeatCleaver is a sampling audio editor for chopping beats, recordings, and songs. An intuitive design and fluid interface create a fast, frustration-free workflow for sampling and editing audio. With time-stretching and drag export just one click away, BeatCleaver makes music sampling easier than ever before.

The groundbreaking new RapidEdit™ audio engine takes an innovative new approach to audio editing for a more fluid editing experience. BeatCleaver can now apply and layer edits and effects with instant, tweakable results visualized by the waveform. The days of waiting for rendering and repeatedly undoing effects just to get them right are over – Even fades and normalization can be adjusted in real-time. Combined with the existing slicing and time-stretching capabilities of BeatCleaver, musicians now have a better tool than ever before for remixing drum loops and sampling music.

BeatCleaver 1.4 also introduces automatic tempo detection combined with an integrated time-stretching toolbar for quicker pitch and time adjustments. Musicians can also now export slice timing to a MIDI file as notes (groove extraction) and reconstruct beats later in a DAW.

Changes in BeatCleaver v1.4

  • Audio Editing, using a new state-of-the-art engine for real-time audio editing and effects (watch the video).
  • Automatic tempo (BPM) detection.
  • Easier time-stretching controls.
  • Slice-to-MIDI functionality.

BeatCleaver is available to purchase for $79 USD / 59 EUR / £54 GBP.

Oscillicious updates BeatCleaver to v1.3 incl. time stretching

Oscillicious has released version 1.3 of BeatCleaver, a major update of the beat slicing tool for Windows and Mac.

Oscillicious BeatCleaver 1.3
New features include a state of the art time stretching engine, support for the FLAC audio format, drag and drop sample export, and on-the-fly chopping.

BeatCleaver is a beat slicing tool for sampling beats, recordings, and songs. Its intuitive design and fluid user interface create a fast, frustration-free workflow.
Slice templates and multiple export functions are just one click away, making music sampling with BeatCleaver easy and convenient.

With the integration of a new, state of the art time stretching engine, BeatCleaver can now warp and pitch shift samples with precision. The Rubber Band time stretching engine allows musicians to change the tempo and pitch of a sample independently of one another while preserving important musical characteristics such as transient shapes. Combined with the existing slicing capabilities of BeatCleaver, musicians have more tools than ever before for recontextualizing and sampling music.

BeatCleaver 1.3 also introduces a new drag export mode, FLAC support, and on-the-fly chopping. Musicians can now drag sampled slices directly out of BeatCleaver and into a folder, their desktop, or a DAW. Lossless FLAC audio files can now also be read and sliced, and by popular demand, slicing directly at the
playback cursor is now possible during playback.

BeatCleaver for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for 24 EUR.
