Sugar Bytes Review at Computer Music Magazine

A product from

An unexpected new release from the performance effects specialists aims to make Egoist maniacs of us all

 
 
Every now and then, a virtual instrument comes along that straddles categories and carves a new niche, and Egoist is certainly one of them. A loop slicer with benefits, if you like, it combines sample chopping (the Slicer module) with a bass synth (Bass), a drum machine (Beat) and an effects section. It can be used standalone or as a plugin (AU/VST/RTAS/AAX) and is primarily a system for generating inspirational loops on which to build broader tracks.
 
Every section of Egoist is controlled by its own 16-step sequencer, each of which can be independently set to play in one of four modes (forwards, backwards, forwards-then-backwards or random). Like almost everything else in Egoist, these can be controlled using host automation. Let's look at those sections in more detail.
