B.Slizr

formerly known as B.Slicer

Description: LV2 audio effect plugin for sequenced slicing of stereo audio input signals. Each slice can be levelled up or down to get a step sequencer-like effect.

Installation

a) Install the bslizr package for your system

b) Build your own binaries in the following three steps.

Step 1: Download the latest published version of B.Slizr. Or clone or download the master of this repository.

Step 2: Install pkg-config and the development packages for x11, cairo, and lv2 if not done yet. On Debian-based systems you may run:

sudo apt-get install pkg-config libx11-dev libcairo2-dev lv2-dev

Step 3: Building and installing into the default lv2 directory (/usr/lib/lv2/) is easy. Simply call:

make
sudo make install

from the directory where you downloaded the repository files. For installation into an alternative directory (e.g., /usr/local/lib/lv2), change the variable PREFIX while installing:

sudo make install PREFIX=/usr/local

Running

After the installation Ardour, Carla, and any other LV2 host should automatically detect B.Slizr.

If jalv is installed, you can also call it

jalv.gtk https://www.jahnichen.de/plugins/lv2/BSlizr

to run it stand-alone and connect it to the JACK system.

Notes:

What's new

  • Jack transport status notification
  • Downsize on small screens
  • New install method

Usage

The plugin slices a stereo input, amplifies or silences the individual slices and send the whole sequence to the output. Although this affects only the audio signal, it needs a playback running (Jack transport).

The interface is divided into three parts: step controls, monitor and step shape.

Step controls

  • Sequences per bar : Number of sequences in one bar (1..8)
  • Number of steps : Number of steps in one sequence (1..16)
  • Step control : Coefficient for sound reduction for each individual step

Monitor

  • On/Off switch: Switches monitor and monitor <-> plugin communication on/off. Reduces CPU load.
  • Scale : Scales the visualization of the input / output signal
  • Monitor : Visualization (l + r signal) the input / output signal for a whole sequence

Step shape

  • Attack
  • Decay
  • Monitor : Visualization of a single step
