Mess with the sounds by wrapping them with sound effects


Slicer takes a longer, continuous sound and phases it in and out which “slices” it up. You can use the phase parameter to change how long the sound is before it slices back out (larger means more sound per slice).

Great if you want to take a larger sample and break it into a beat while keeping its essence.

  sleep 8
