CLAS­SIC FREE SOFT­WARE

SMARTELECTRONIX LIVECUT

Computer Music - - News -

Not a sin­gle de­vel­oper, but rather a col­lec­tion of freeware and do­na­tion­ware providers, smartelectronix have been a go-to re­source since the ear­li­est days of VSTs. French de­vel­oper Remy Muller’s smartelectronix con­tri­bu­tions are re­leased un­der the name mdsp, and one of his best is Livecut, a re­work­ing of Nick Collins’ BBCut, writ­ten for Su­perCol­lider. Livecut is a beat slicer, but for­goes the usual route of slic­ing a beat into equal-sized bits; in­stead, the length of the cuts and rep­e­ti­tions de­pends on con­text. Cuts are ar­ranged into blocks, which are then formed into a phrase. In­spir­ing stuff. mdsp.smartelectronix.com
