LiveSlice has released version 1.50 of LiveSlice, a beat slicer that can do much more than just slice your beats and export the results.

You can load up to 64 wave files at a time, slice them up and combine the slices in the multitrack arranger.

Each slice is coloured based on the content so you can easily tell them apart – this makes manual rearranging a lot faster, and more inspirational, since you are working with direct representations of the audio and not just abstract midi notes. If you find arranging beats in a piano roll / drum map a bit awkward at times, LiveSlice will definately change the way you make music.

Changes in LiveSlice v1.50

  • Audio and midi export.
  • Drag’n’drop loading of files.
  • MP3 and AIF import.
  • You can now load multiple files at once.
  • Load many one shot samples to the same loop slot.
  • Keyboard shortcuts in the file manager.
  • Added an option to speed up loading of files at the expense of less detailed graphical representation.
  • Updated user interface backend (better performance).
  • Improved scrolling in the file browser and loops list.
  • Fixed: default colors now loaded.
  • Fixed: minor bug with pasting events.
  • Fixed: the “clear” command now properly resets all parameters.
  • Fixed: clipping during 24 bit export.

LiveSlice is available as a VST plug-in for Windows PC for 49.95 EUR. The upcoming version 1.51 will include an OSX version (currently in beta) and editable loop points for stretching.
