Sinevibes has announced version 1.4 of Fraction, the audio slicing workstation plugin for Mac that allows for deep on-the-fly remixing and mangling of sound.

The new version brings a thoroughly redesigned user interface, new features and functional enhancements, performance optimizations, and more.

Sinevibes Fraction 1.4

Fraction features 8x independent slice repeaters, as many as 24x multi-effect processors, effect parameter animation and a lot of tricks for real-time rhythmic randomization.

Changes in Fraction v1.4.0

  • Thoroughly redesigned user interface with bolder shapes and thicker font.
  • New arrow-style status indicators above slice markers which light up when the respective slices are processing audio.
  • New “random” slice playback mode that shuffles between forward, reverse & forward-reverse modes.
  • Increased audio waveform rendering resolution for retina screens.
  • New “intelligent” algorithms for slice size and slice repeats randomization that adapt random number distribution depending on parameter range and current value.
  • Extended function support for force-touch trackpads.
  • Reduced processor load thanks to all-new, more efficient parameter and modulation lag filters.
  • Reduced processor load and improved memory handling in main slice repeater algorithm.
  • Reduced GPU load from audio waveform graphic.
  • Multiple improvements in user manual, including block diagram.
  • New factory presets (over 80 presets now included).

The update is free for all existing users. A new demo video has also been released, showing Fraction’s capabilities when used with Elektron Digitakt.
