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.
a) Install the bslizr package for your system
- Arch linux by David Runge
- NixOS by Bart Brouns
- Check https://repology.org/project/bslizr/versions for other systems
b) Build your own binaries in the following three steps.
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
After the installation Ardour, Carla, and any other LV2 host should automatically detect B.Slizr.
If jalv is installed, you can also call it
to run it stand-alone and connect it to the JACK system.
- Jack transport is required to get information about beat / position
- If you use an older version (until v0.3) of this plugin, use the URI https://www.jahnichen.de/plugins/lv2/BSlicer instead.
- Jack transport status notification
- Downsize on small screens
- New install method
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.
- 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
- 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
- Monitor : Visualization of a single step
