Egoist is a groove instrument. Load any audio file and squeeze the groove out of it. Try your MP3 library and use it as a sound source. The additional onboard bass, beat and FX units make Egoist the perfect track sketch tool in the studio and on the road.



  • The Slicer arranges up to 16 slices of the loaded sample. Apply different parameters like Reverse, Attack, Decay, Level and pitch with the sequencer. Using the 16 available patterns, up to 16 different samples can be used at any time:

Bass & Beat:

  • Egoist includes a great sounding bassline synthesizer/sequencer. The bassline synth offers a mean and strong sound, with different lowpass filter flavors and overdrive. The versatile sequencer is capable of notes and pitch bends of any length.
  • The internal beat box offers kick, snare and hihat, along with a simple sequencer. If you imagine, that you can change the drum sounds with each pattern, limitations start to get you inspired.

Effectrix inside:

  • The Effect unit brings funky hiccups to your tracks. Engage tapestop, looper, reverb or filter at any time to give your beats that otherworldly feel and create stunning breaks.

Song Sequencer:

  • Chain your patterns. Or create stunning breakbeats by changing patterns quickly. The internal Part/Song sequencer lets you sketch your pattern progressions and line out your next track.

Always special:

  • The very special Slice Keys turn Egoist into a slice keyboard. Play the sequencer steps on the keyboard, with all their settings and effects, you will not believe how cool that is.

Curious - if using this in Logic Pro X .. i can't figure out how to export or "record" what i've created in Egoist into my session. Is this because i'm testing out the Demo version?

here too! I miss a recording function to create wav files.

also slice envelopes! I use kontakt because it has a envelope per slice.

The standalone version (launched outside of your DAW) features an audio recorder. Otherwise you should be able to use your DAW to record the audio from Egoist. It's a shame it doesn't have dedicated outputs for the slicer, bass synth and drum synth, and it also doesn't allow for manual slicing (as of this comment anyway, it was on the "to do" list for a long time). The interface sizing is a serious impediment though; many users report disappointment that the bottom of the plugin is just unusable as it can't be seen. Having addressed the bad points though, it's still a huge amount of fun to use and can yield excellent results quickly.
