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.
