First plugin: LoopDrive3


Here is the first plugin in this blog. I’ve made it long time ago, and as image-line asked me to update it, so they can include it in their new FruityLoops Studio8, I did it.

To give users a chance to play with it without having to buy FL-Studio, I decided to publish it here.


What it is: It’s a Loop slicer and rearranger with some weird FX. So you load in a drum loop wave, set the tempo, and LoopDrive slices it into beats. Now you can use the build-in sequencer grid to rearrange the beats. There is also a “reverse sequencer” which enables you to play selected beats backwards. After rearranging the loop you can apply a filter, bit crusher, distortion, overdrive and even a grain FX. There’s also the possibility to set the FX order, which gives you more control over the FX.

There are also some other things that I haven’t mentioned here, so try it yourself.


The LoopDrive3 VST-Plugin can be found here.

And if want to play with its source, here is the SynthMaker schematic.

Have fun!

fantastic plugin, i am already finding many uses for it. Serious potential for experimental beatmangling work as well as trad beatslicing.

well done!

i have been using since the KVR Devoloper challange, its an essential little standalone version. I always carry it and a few other standalone bits of standalone audio software with a mini sample library and other stuff on a 4GB USB flash drive. It takes portable noise making to a new level! so thank you for this new version. It will be converted to a standalone app ASAP in SynthMaker. Again thank you for this inspirational piece of software. I also believe that this would sell very well (I for one would be happy to pay for it). So maybe an idea would be to put together a package of Drum/Rhythmic loops & loopdrive together in a neat little package? Keep up the great work
