New Sonic Arts has updated its Vice loop slicer plugin to version 1.3705. The update includes improved audio export and slice deletion handling.

Quickly find, preview and hot-swap loops via the integrated browser, and slice them in an instant with the advanced transient-detection algorithm. Sync perfectly with your DAW via the beat-locked Play Mode or trigger slices on-the-fly via your MIDI controller.

Create new loops from old by re-sequencing them direct in your DAWs piano-roll, and bounce and export the entire loop – or individual slices – via the convenient drag-and-drop export feature.
