Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.
Released towards the end of the year, Audio Blasts BreadSlicer delivers an ultra-simple UI that produces some drastic transformations.
Before we dive in, can we all take a moment to appreciate the main image used for BreadSlicer? There's little to unpack after you've had a chuckle over the image. An AutoGlitch/Breaks/Stutter plugin, BreadSlicer needs just three parameters to get the job done; on/off, tempo sync (1/4. 1/8, 1/16) and gate. The blue bar on the right of the plugin shows the shape of the waveform based on the parameter settings you're using.
Much like some of our favourite free plugins from 2021, BreadSlicer takes no time at all to transform any audio you feed it. The plugin is able to detect the tempo of the audio file, and then rearrange it in a musical way.
It certainly lends itself to more considered and subtle uses, but even that can really change the shape of a piece that's hit a creative wall.
BreadSlicer is available for Windows, macOS and Linux (64-bit VST2/VST3/AU/AAX) and can be downloaded for free using the link below.
