Big Fish Audio has released an update to Momentum, a plugin that allows you to slice, stretch, change the key, rearrange, and compose from multiple samples and sources, as well as find that perfect one-shot inside your loop.

Version 1.1 includes Momentum Song Section Indicators, various bug fixes, NKS light guide support, and expanded DAW support for Pro Tools, Reaper, Studio One, Cakewalk, and Reason.
