The Slicer arranges up to 16 slices of the loaded sample. Apply different parameters like Reverse, Attack, Decay, Level and pitch with the sequencer. Using the 16 available patterns, up to 16 different samples can be used at any time.

Bass & Beat

Egoist includes a great-sounding bassline synthesizer/sequencer with a mean and strong sound, different lowpass filter flavors and overdrive. Its versatile sequencer is capable of notes and pitch bends of any length. The internal beatbox offers kick, snare and hihat, along with a simple sequencer.

Effectrix inside

The effect unit brings funky hickups to your tracks. Engage tapestop, looper, reverb or filter at any time to give your beats that otherworldly feel and create stunning breaks!

Song Sequencer

Chain your patterns! Or create stunning breakbeats by changing patterns quickly! The internal Part/Song sequencer lets you sketch your pattern progressions and line out your next track.

Always special

The very special Slice Keys turn Egoist into a slice keyboard! Play the sequencer steps on the keyboard, with all their settings and effects, you will not believe how cool that is!

Slice & Arrange

Egoist's slicing engine lets you include your own field recordings, mp3 tracks or from the factory samples. Re-arrange and manipulate this material to create fresh and unique loops. Egoist features plenty of random buttons to guide inspiration.

Turn inspiration into rhythm

For a quick start, Egoist's easily operated drum sequencer offers 16 ready-made beats. With 400 samples to choose from and individual pitch controls on each of the three drum tracks, your percussion track will never sound the same.
