With sEGments slicer/sampler app you can Import any loop/sample/audio file and find the best samples inside it, using the automatic transient detection or manually adding markers.
You can play the slices with any MIDI external controller or with the builtin pads and keyboard layout; also each slice can be played chromatically as in a real synth with mono or polyphonic voices (up to 12).
Each slice has independent parameters (all automatable in any AU host), such as reverse, level, attack, release, start point and length and individual fxs (reverb, delay, bitcrusher and filter) that can be changed on the fly thanks to its flexible audio engine.

sEGments automatically detect BPM and root key of your audio file and it can adjust its tempo and pitch according to your project settings.

It can be used both in standalone or hosted as AudioUnit AU3 inside apps like GarageBand, AUM, BeatMaker3, NanoStudio2, n-Track9 and others, and it supports AU Multi-output.

5 Star rating BUT….

I gave this app five stars but there are two flaws that are so critical they are the reason why I am not a famous producer right now…When you’re recording audio directly through the record feature if your phone or tablet is set to sleep after some amount of time the app doesn’t stop it from sleeping and you lose your recording. this is sort of a dealbreaker and unforgivable please fix it. The next related issue is that you cannot record once you have started a project you can only record from the initialization screen. Why? Please enable recording at any point.

Mehmui ,

So glad this exists

Love your plugins. Keep up the good work.
I have some feature requests.
- please enable sync recording just as in aum so perfect loops can be recorded directly into segments and then evenly chopped.
- please enable a zoom view.
- extra please!!! Can you add lock (sync) time of a slice so its rhythm stays the same and the pitch can change via keyboard or slider. This was actually the primary reason i wanted segments. I want to be able to record parts and then transpose them while maintaining timing. It seems like it almost does this now but not quite.
- make default volume say cc100 and be able to turn a slice up to max say cc127 with clean volume, vs dirty gain (which is a great feature btw)
- in stand alone on iphone xr/11 fx mix of delay and crush are in accessible due to ios app switch bar :/

Thanks 🙏🏽

Doctor Trey ,

Yes! Finally!

We’ve been waiting a long time for this one. So easy to use. I’d say this is one of my top 5 app purchase this year and definitely the best for slicing. The shot slice mode in itself is worth the price of admission. I would love to see the ability to replace individual slices with other samples, but I do realize that could be a different genre of a music app all together. Thank you Elliot Garage for such amazing work!
