[PD] drum slicer

I would be EXTREMELY interested in something along the lines of 
Supatrigga (but why not with more features) if anyone knows out how to 
create something like this...  I've seen some amazing MAX Reaktor 
patches along those lines...

Especially, there is a command line program called "glitch.exe" that 
does very interesting beat chopping and FX (you can find the free demo 
online).  But, glitch is not really time.  If I could combine beat 
rearranging (with both manual and auto modes) and the ability to add 
different FX to each slice, I'd be in heaven.

Theoretically, you could build an FX blackbox, that gets a bang 
everytime a new slice comes through.  The bang triggers the FX to change 
according to weighted probability.  Inside you would probably have 8 to 
16 parallel FX, with a slider for each parameter to control the 
likelihood that audio would get routed through it.  If you wanted to do 
it like "glitch", there might be four layers of FX alligned in a series, 
so any given slice would go through 0 to 4 FX processes before coming 
out of the FX blackbox.
