Fraction is a plugin for deep on-the-fly remixing and mangling of sound. It features 8x independent slicers which record and repeat short pieces of incoming audio at defined points in time, either mixing with or replacing the original input. Each slicer has options for variable trigger probability and intelligent randomization for producing infinite variations in the arrangement instead of repeating the same loop over and over. Fraction also includes as many as 24x multi-effect processors (three for every slicer) with a diverse collection of finely tuned algorithms, plus effect parameter animation hard-linked to slicer’s timing. With such immense power Fraction is not just a great tool for intricate stutters, fills, breaks and transitions – it’s more like a little sampling groovebox that operates fully in real time.
– Thoroughly redesigned user interface with bolder shapes and thicker font.
– New arrow-style status indicators above slice markers which light up when the respective slices are processing audio.
– New “random” slice playback mode that shuffles between forward, reverse & forward-reverse modes.
– Increased audio waveform rendering resolution for retina screens.
– New “intelligent” algorithms for slice size and slice repeats randomization that adapt random number distribution depending on parameter range and current value.
– Extended function support for force-touch trackpads.
– Reduced processor load thanks to all-new, more efficient parameter and modulation lag filters.
– Reduced processor load and improved memory handling in main slice repeater algorithm.
– Reduced GPU load from audio waveform graphic.
– Multiple improvements in user manual, including block diagram.
– New factory presets (over 80 presets now included).
Easy to use. Great results. Versatile effects. Unconventional modulation. Great presets. [...] Heaps of fun from this creative new plugin. – Computer Music Magazine, 2016
Fraction isn’t the first slice repeater plug-in. But it might be the most direct and intuitive. [...] It’s tough to describe just how much it’s able to do. – Create Digital Music, 2015
