Wanted: loop slicing

Are there any good off-the-shelf solutions for accurate beat slicing? Or if you’ve got the chops do you want to write one for us?

Drop me a note :slight_smile:

Thanks! Jim.

actually splitting a signal into 2 other signals is easy but you’d need to search for resources about detecting onset envelopes in a signal for the hitpoint/transient detection

There are many different algorithms for onset detection, and they all have their pros and cons depending on the input material.

A famous “all-around” one for which you can find implementations is SuperFlux.

Also every year the MIREX conference provides a dataset for audio onset detection. All state of the art algorithms and new ones are evaluated against it so you can compare what’s best for what material. Here are the results of 2018 for example.
