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

Ratings and Reviews
Brilliant, creative, fun for hours
Simple, intuitive and well thought out interface. Yet surprisingly powerful once you look under the hood. Within minutes of purchase, I was having great fun creating beats I never could have imagined.
I’m looking forward to see how this killer music app evolves.
I highly recommend it, there’s nothing like it.
A lot of bang for the buck.
However— I would give 5 stars if I could rely on my files staying the same way I left them. Opening previously saved works is inconsistent—sometimes the tempo is sped up, or some of my saved patterns simply disappear.
And Now For Something Completely Different❣️🤓👍
I'm not sure what to make of Egoist yet...but that is a good thing, in this case, because it means I'm learning new things and developing more as a musician. And the fact that your source material is 'literally' the entire natural and human made aura of auditory enlightenments and what the 'inner space' between our ears can do with it using Egoist to reinterpret the world around and in us. (I found Egoist quite by accident when looking at/moving towards both Groove and EDM Music.)
Very nice. Fun. Flexible.
Good groovebox. Ableton Link works as long as you have External also selected. Love that it works as an AU. Will be lots of fun adding this to my collection of jam boxes!
