Big Fish Audio has announced an update to the Momentum free plugin that is designed to unlock the potential of your loops and samples with the next generation of sound sculpting tools.

Big Fish Audio Momentum

Version 1.2 includes a resizable GUI, improved slice editing, latch mode on the slice page, slice effect overlay, DAW stability improvements, bug fixes, and more.

Momentum is the next generation of KLI. This plugin is a powerful loop transformation platform 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.

You also have access to Big Fish Audio’s world-famous loop libraries right inside the plugin. And unlike other loop platforms, Momentum is completely free and doesn’t have any subscription fees.
