slix free sampler | slicer by de la Mancha

slix is a free sampler and slicer VST plugin developed by de la Mancha. Compatible OS(s): Windows.

slix is a multi-loop slicer that uses randomisation to switch between up to 4 different loops, each with their own randomised re-order, repeat, reverse and gating effects. All of this is in tempo-sync with your host and can be great for anything from full-on glitchy beat-mongering to subtle variations.

slix also comes with 295 original drum loops by sink, covering breakbeat, dubstep, drum & bass, electro, 8 bit, lofi, vintage, IDM, FSU and glitch, demonstrated in 57 presets. You can of course load your own wavs (16-, 24- or 32-bit, mono or stereo).


  • Load any 16-, 24- or 32-bit, mono or stereo wav file into the 4 loop slots.
  • 445 MB of original drum loop content (295 loops) by sink covering many electronic genres (breakbeat, dubstep, drum & bass, electro, 8 bit, lofi, vintage, IDM, FSU and glitch).
  • Tempo-sync each loop by setting length in beats, allowing stretching or different lengths if desired.
  • Choose any number of slices per loop.
  • Slix plays when triggered by any MIDI note, with volume envelope per loop for fades.
  • 4 effects with independent parameters per loop:
    • Reorder – plays slices out of sequence for variation per loop.
    • Repeat – stutter effect by repeating slices.
    • Reverse – play the slice backwards.
    • Gate – add silent gaps into the loop.
  • Variation range to randomise probabilities.
  • Normalise and mono options per loop.
  • Stereo-out and Multi-out versions (slix and slix 4×4).
  • Single loop version (slix one) for simpler applications or lower CPU.
  • 57 presets covering a range of sounds and styles.

Pseudograins free glitch | granulizer | slicer by Subminimal

Pseudograins is a free glitch and granulizer and slicer VST plugin developed by Subminimal. Compatible OS(s): Windows.

General Features:

  • Loads WAV files.
  • Supports MIDI CCs.
  • Syncs to tempo.

Pseudograins is composed of 4 main components:

Main Loop:

  • Forward/Reverse main loop sample playback.
  • Slices – The number of divisions in the main loop. Each of these slices are represented in the sequencer.
  • ADSR [enable/disable] – sends each slice thru an envelope.
  • Speed Control [min/max] – controls the speed at which the main slices are played back. Negative values cause playback of main slices to reverse.

Sub Loop:

It works just as above with the exception that it processes individual slices generated in the main loop. Setting a high sub slice value will cause a pseudo granular effect, as you are dividing a single slice into an a much smaller looping sub slice. You can use it to maintain pitch, but timestretch the hell out of a sample. Larger sub slice values can be used to create stutters or general repetitions here and there.


The sequencer is HEX based (0-9,A-F) – you can arrange these slices in any order you want. You can juggle a drum loop, chop a vocal into prefuse 73 stutters. The sync mode and quantize will further effect how the sequencer steps thru the main loop slices.

There are 4 sequence lanes label A-D. You can trigger these live to switch sequences during playback.

[Sequencer Sync Modes]:

  1. None – As soon as a slice is played, it moves to the next position in the sequencer. It will return to the beginning once all steps in the text string are exhausted.
  2. FreeRun – You are synced to host tempo, but it plays thru the list, returning to the beginning once all steps are exhausted.
  3. Locked – GlitchBitch is synced to host tempo, the number of step played is based on the Quantize (below).
  4. Quantize – determines the number of steps when syncing to host using FreeRun/Locked.
    8 – will play 8 steps, synced to 1/8ths in the host.
    16 – will play 16 steps, synced to 1/16ths in the host.
    32 – will play 32 steps, synced to 1/32nds in the host.
    64 – will play 64 steps, synced to 1/64ths in the host.


Snapshots are used to recall all parameter settings instantly. This is how you begin making things a bit more musical, as you can switch parameters instantly to focus on different sounds.

KerrStinn free sampler | slicer | stutter | glitch by Shuriken

KerrStinn is a free sampler and slicer and stutter and glitch VST plugin developed by Shuriken. Compatible OS(s): Windows, macOS.

KerrStinn is a slicer, glitcher and loop dissector. KerrStinn changes your loops randomly by moving slices of it around and/or applying effects to the slices according to rules that Shuriken call “generators”. It is sort of an automatic controllable recallable loop slicer.


  • Loads WAV files.
  • “Random” knob to control what initial value the randomizing has.
  • “Slices” knob to control how many slices you want to cut the loop in to.
  • “Bisyness” parameter to control the weight of random to be applied; low values equals a small chance of change and larger values more.
  • “Bars” parameter to set how many bars the loop originally is (up to 8).
  • “Generator” parameter – these are rules on how to dissect your loops. Take “Freaky 4” for example, its rule is simply “if a slice is the 4th in a series perhaps play it backwards and/or apply the fftish effect on the slice”.
  • On/off switch.


InstantSampler free sampler | slicer | stutter | glitch by Muxer

InstantSampler is a free sampler and slicer and stutter and glitch VST, Audio Unit plugin developed by Muxer. Compatible OS(s): Windows 64b, macOS.

InstantSampler is a simple sampler that records audio from the audio input when a MIDI note is played for the first time. Any consecutive time you play the same note, it plays back the recorded audio with the possibility to vary or trigger:

  • Velocity.
  • Attack and release.
  • The level of the input audio which is passed unaffected while no samples are played.
  • Playback speed using the pitchbend control.
  • Normal or reversed playback.
  • Looped scrolling, which enables you to use the modulation wheel to control the position in a sample at which small loops are played (e.g. “hello” becomes “h-h-e-e-l-l-o-o”).
  • Clearing of the sample memory.

This plugin is especially handy if you want to do some ‘remixing’ (like stuttering or scratch effects) on your mix without having to make a bounce-down of that mix first. You have explicit control over these effects, compared to other glitching “mess things up” plugins that often do things randomly.
