Igor Vasiliev of Motion Soundscape has announced an update to the BeatCutter app for iOS and macOS (AUv3).

Version 1.9 of the app for “rhythm slicing and recombining” comes with 3 new datasets that are suitable for slicing long, smoothly changing multi-timbral samples or external sources. The datasets are used to set specific parameter values when using a template.

BeatCutter is an experimental multi-channel app for slicing and recombining sound based on rhythm. In the center of the app is a matrix of sample cells with smoothly reconfigurable recording, playback and control busses. This app is best for those who would like to experiment with large audio files or live instruments, creating chaotic constructions and patterns from sliced rhythm-driven samples.

Additionally, the update fixes an issue where files added from other apps were not saved in presets. A problem with starting playback in some DAWs (particularly GarageBand) was fixed as well, alongside some other minor bug fixes.

BeatCutter is available to purchase at the App Store for $15.99 USD.
