GrooveSlice – Parametric Looping Engine

Price £17.50

The aptly named GrooveSlice boasts a stunning array of both innovative and classic features.

It functions as a parametric delay with separate parameters for recording and playback, and allows the user to dictate loop boundaries, manually or automatically retrigger record/play, control the speed and direction of playback (in several ways), and even create and entirely new loop by recording to different areas of a loop and freezing it in place. The automatic retrigger, and its ability to use pythagorean harmony ratios for speed adjustment make it the most musical audio manipulator on the market.

Description

The aptly named GrooveSlice boasts a stunning array of both innovative and classic features.

It functions as a parametric delay with separate parameters for recording and playback, and allows the user to dictate loop boundaries, manually or automatically retrigger record/play, control the speed and direction of playback (in several ways), and even create and entirely new loop by recording to different areas of a loop and freezing it in place. The automatic retrigger, and its ability to use pythagorean harmony ratios for speed adjustment make it the most musical audio manipulator on the market.

Along with this control comes the ability to actually see what you are controlling. There is a window showing your loop, where you can see what’s recorded, select loop boundaries and watch the playhead. Also included is an incredibly accurate oscilloscope, showing the input signal, the wet signal, and the mixed signal in different colors so the user knows where each sound is coming from, and how they relate.

Used by hand, GrooveSlice transforms the experience of performing live. One can scratch a live drummer, create gorgeous dualing guitar melodies, turn their voice into an alien choir or transform a drum machine into a polyrhythm powerhouse. Used with automation or the included control packs, it gains an (insane) mind of its own and goes far beyond the capabilities of anything else we’ve seen…

Q. What are the Minimum System Requirements?

A. Ableton Live 9.7 & MaxforLive 7

Q. What’s the Installation Process?

A. If the files provided end in .amxd then these should be downloaded and saved to a folder on your harddrive, the files can then either be dragged into your Live set with the mouse or you can add a file path to the folder they’re contained within in the Live Browser.

If the files provided end in .alp then these are Ableton Live Packs, double clicking them open will usually provide a warning regarding the files “Legacy” status, this is nothing to worry about, it’s just the only way we can make a pack that will install itself into your Live browser alongside the factory content.

Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.

.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.

.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.

Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download, an abridged version of the installation will be shown further down this page.

ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.

Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.
