Slicr: Remix Production Tool arrives, looks interesting

At first glance I thought this app looked to have a lot of features that other apps such as iMaschine or LaunchPad would also offer. Which is fine, there’s nothing wrong with some competition.

However, I do like the idea of being able to Slice sounds using 3 distinct modes for sampling found in classic samplers. I’m not sure what that’s like or how it sounds as I don’t have the app as yet, but it could be quite entertaining.

For now, here are the details of the app:

To celebrate the launch of our new app Slicr, we are offering it on sale for $5.99 for the month of December with 3 free sample packs for Trap, Hip-Hop and Electronic music, as well as a new sample pack from Mr.Carmack for purchase for your slicing and chopping.

Slice Beats, Remix, Recycle, Design, DJ, Compose, & Share

Turn your iOS device into a professional sample slicing and chopping beat making music production tool with DJ FX mode, and live arrangements similar to Ableton Live. Slicr includes everything you need to create a beat quickly and easily, including 4 banks of samples/slices, built-in effects, plus the ability to create new sequences, loops and record and overdub beats. With more than 600 free samples, and 10 editable template songs, Slicr is the first app to feature a Wave View drum pad which allows you to easily distinguish sounds on pads and read waveforms.
