📅 May 23 2022 – New Slice update available

Version 1.2.0

  • Added AAX plugin support for Protools.

  • Added more tooltips.
  • Playlist bar number starts from one instead of zero.
  • Extended the length of the playlist.
  • Added auto scrolling of the playlist.

  • Added an option to turn on or off looping the playlist.
  • Play mode is saved in the host project file.
  • When moving the playback indicator in the playlist the audio will start playing from the indicator position, instead of waiting for the start of a new block.
  • Basic loop only presets (Not Beat Starters) can be dragged directly onto the sample display. There are two options: 1 Load only the loop without setting any parameters. This is useful if you want to try out different loops but keep everything else the same. Or 2 also load the bass sequence if one is available. This bass will be in key and to the scale of the loop.

  • Added support for ASIO drivers on windows in the standalone app.
