Initial Slice is a loop slicer and beat maker plugin. Load audio loops with drag and drop to chop, loop, flip, change pitch, or even stretch them out over time. Initial Slice also comes with several built-in pianos so you can create sequences right out of the box. On top of that, we have an advanced drum sequencer, bass sequencer, playlist editor, 4 effects racks (each with 11 built-in effects) and tons of high quality content. Producers from all over the world have come together to create a huge library of over 300 melodic trap, hip hop, drill and rnb loops, drum patterns and beat starters. Create your own libraries, drum patterns and beat starters and share them with others or even sell them online. Slice saves all the samples and drum sounds you use to a project file, users don’t have to deal with files and folders, they can simply upload new content via drag and drop.
Because quality matters!
Slice is powered by Zynaptics AI powered ZTX algorithm which is one of the best in the world and can handle multi-timbral sound like no other. Load as a plug-in in your DAW, everything will be in sync and will always match the set tempo of your DAW of choice. Slice is a high-quality, easy-to-use tool for music producers and a great platform for content creators to share content with other music producers around the world.

Slice v1.2.0 fixes and improvements include:
Added support for the AAX plugin.
Added autoscroll playlist.
In song mode, the playlist is synchronized with the host playlist when running as a plugin. Pressing the play button on the host activates the fragment play button and plays in sync with the host.
Added the ability to enable or disable playlist looping.
The playback mode is stored in the host project file.
When moving a play indicator in a playlist, the audio will play from the position of the indicator instead of waiting for a new block to start.
Only basic loop presets (not Beat Starters) can be dragged directly onto the sample display. There are two options: 1 Load only the cycle without setting any parameters. This is useful if you want to try different loops but leave everything else the same. Or 2 also download the bass sequence if available. This bass will be in the key and scale of the loop.
Added Swing to drum sequencer.
Added support for ASIO drivers for Windows in a separate application.
Added support for Bluetooth MIDI devices on Windows in a separate application.
Dragging a fragment outside of a plugin/app now has the project’s BPM instead of the original sample BPM. This way the slice will sound the same on the outside of the Initial Slice as it does on the inside.
Fixed a bug due to which the return did not work if files with the same name already existed.
Fixed a bug due to which the sample was not synchronized when changing the pitch of the cutoff, and the BPM of the project was different from the BPM of the sample.
Fixed a bug due to which, when changing the BPM on the host, slices could start from the wrong position.
Setting half or double time did not take full account of the host’s BPM.
Fixed a problem with drum patterns, sometimes the very first sample might not play.
Added free expansion pack (Magic Desert), incl. 27 new melodic loops, drum kits and beatstarters.
