    Does anyone use VSTs to slice breaks? I used to have Intakt on a different machine but can longer get it so would like to know what other ones are available and which ones you think are the best to use.

    Not a VST, but you can't beat Propellerheads Recycle for chopping up breaks, or anything really! Such a good bit of kit.

    slicex from image line (the fruity guys) is the only vsti I know that does this, and is pretty good at it too. also, it's not that expensive and once you get the hang of it I guess its even better than recycle from my experience!

    No mate, it's a stand alone program. You just open up your break and it has a little slider which atuomatically sections off each part of the break. The more you slide it the more it seperates it up. You can then preview each part, change the bpm, it had a few other built in features. Finally you can export the bits you want or just export the whole lot.

    Another vote for SliceX... take a look @ http://www.image-line.com/documents/slicex.html

    it's got things like proper enveloping for different groups, like using a shorter envelope for shorter hits and a longer for kick and snare, multi-out (different hits come out to different channels) etc.

    Very useful.

    Indeed, and it also has direct filters on it, so you don't have to filter your breaks trough the mixer.. it's on of the most useful vst's that I know.. I use it for practicly every track that I make..

    If you only need to slice something really simply, and are use FL9, there's the Fruity Slicer.
    It's extremely basic, but it does the job quickly and effectively
