BeatCleaver – slicing made simple
BeatCleaver is a slicing tool for sampling from songs and cutting up beats. This new 1.2 release adds MP3/M4A support, smooth zooming, a new timeline bar, and more! Check it out at: http://www.oscillicious.com/beatcleaver
Here’s what they have to say about the update:
“With new support for MP3 and AAC formats, sampling from existing songs and recordings has never been easier. DJs can now easily save loops from songs to use with sampler decks and artists can cut samples for remixes and mashups.
The new Advanced Slicing menu facilitates slicing audio by fixed bars or beats, perfect for chopping multi?track exports for live resequencing.”
Additional – Santoni shares info on an open source library that they’ve been working on:
In partnership with Mixxx, the free DJ software, we’ve released an open
source library for decoding compressed audio in a cross-platform way
called “libaudiodecoder”. This library grew out of the common needs of
both projects, and we hope it’ll help other audio developers too.
BeatCleaver now ships with libaudiodecoder for enhanced audio format support.
BeatCleaver 1.2 is available now for US $15 /13 EUR. It’s a free update for existing users.
