I have tested HY Slicer 2 in BETA and actively participated in the development. Unfortunately not all wishes could be considered like e.g. randomization of slices into the grid (similar to Slicer 1) or exporting the creation as audio. The slicing algo is unfortunately not very good, e.g. also one-shots are cut or it is not cut very accurately, nevertheless one can rework by hand. You can edit each individual slice in the grind again after you drop some into the Grid. There are no assignable modulations so far, this must be done externally (Bitwig is highly suitable for this). Due to the quite good control by mididata you can play your presets really complex and dynamic. The pattern can be played as long as the note is long, also there is a pattern stop via MIDI (some more options). The 5 tracks can be completely freely assigned with slices and each step can be changed by the effects matrix. Each track has 11 clocked modulation e.g. Tune, Reverse, Filter per step. Slicer 2 is incredibly flexible, you can change slices dynamically and keep the previous slices. So you can use different slices of the same sample in different patterns. You can play polymeters by the variable step length in the grid, single steps can be muted as well. The 17 built-in step effects are also rhythmically playable via a grid and can be different in each pattern, this allows very complex patterns and presets. Finally you can choose different Playback Speed in every Track in every Pattern.

greetings to Tadashi.
