Breathe life into your loops with Vice, the inspiring and powerful loop sampler.
Quickly load loops from the integrated loop browser, slice them in an instant with the intelligent transient detection algorithm and effortlessly export your grooves to your DAW via MIDI drag and drop.
Want to get deeper? Then delve into Vice's comprehensive FX and modulation capabilities, including 4 x FX inserts per-slice, plus seamless DAW integration thanks to the 8 x multiple outputs and comprehensive MIDI and host-automation assignment features.
With a perfect combination of workflow and pristine sound-quality, Vice will quickly become your go-to tool for working with loops.
"Vice is the best slicer plugin I have used in my 25-year music career."
"Fast, easy to use, user-friendly and with an elegant modern design (which fits perfectly with Logic Pro X)."
Frank's extensive production credits include Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg and Saigon.
"What I dig about the design is how clean it is, how smooth the visuals are when zooming in, and how powerful the tool is without being overly complex..."
"...a super quick and powerful way to mangle up your loops and breaks."
Vice 1.265 adds the ability to non-destructively trim your loops, direct within the waveform display. So its now possible to work with non-perfect loops and sync them with your DAW transport.
The update also features OSX Retina / HD support, which takes Vice's OpenGL powered waveform display to a new-level of clarity and detail.
Plus, Enhanced Export Options now include the option to render the entire loop at the current BPM, as well as export individual slices and/or the MIDI sequence.
Vice 1.2 adds the ability to rescale the UI to one of 4 sizes, from Compact to Extra Large
You can now edit the same parameters on multiple slices simultaneously with Slice Multi-Select.
Simply drop any loop onto Vice's large waveform display to immediately transform it into an expressive drum-kit or playable musical instrument. Three auto-slicing algorithms are available, including intelligent transient detection, grid based slicing (e.g. 16ths), plus full manual slicing for total control over slice creation.
Slices can be quickly adjusted with automatic snap-to-zero-crossings, and for sample-precise detailed editing, quickly zoom-in an out of slices with the smooth-zooming waveform. Creating new slices is just a mouse-click away, and with full edit history feel free to experiment!
Once your perfect groove is ready, quickly get it tempo-synced into your DAW project via simple MIDI drag-and-drop.
Or drag out individual slices as post-FX rendered samples with the drag to audio feature.
Vice's tweaking abilities don't stop there - the state-of-the-art sound engine boasts a wide range of sound-sculpting parameters, all per-slice.
The powerful FX section features 4 x FX slots, and a choice of 8 high-quality algorithms, including analog modelled filters, dynamics processing, and a suite of texturing effects. And if that's not enough, you can process your slices further in your DAW via Vice's 8 x multiple outputs.
The extensive modulation system includes support for MIDI sources, such as Velocity, PitchBend and ModWheel as well as the internal per-slice modulators, including Envelope, LFO and Randomisation, all of which can be freely routed to any real-time parameter.
The integrated File Browser enables quick and easy navigation of your loops and presets, including on-the-fly Sample Audition and a Cycle Mode for quickly locating that perfect groove.
Vice supports .wav and .aiff, and presets can be saved with samplesfor total peace-of-mind. Vice can even embed samples into your DAW projects, perfect for working on the road and / or collaboratively with other Vice users.
The Assignment Manager offers full control over host-automation and MIDI CC mapping to all real-time parameters, so you can create the perfect live-setup or automate individual slice parameters in your DAW tracks.
