Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs Music blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.
It's time to slice up your life! Available for Mac and Windows, this cutdown version of the full HY-Slicer is a great piece of free software for chopping up sounds and designing fresh, interesting sequences.
Simply drag and drop MP3, Wav or AIFF audio on the HY-Slicer and you can automatically chop the audio into equal slices. Then either move these slicer markers to specific places, or go nuts with the randomizer to see what interesting noises the software sequencer serves up on its own. The fun really starts when you start building and storing your favourite sequences and patterns, getting creative with the reverse function, shuffle and more. Below you can see the full version in action which is also available for $50 and adds a few more features and FX.
