Envelop your Music in Vibrant Rhythmic Energy with the BOSS SL-2 Slicer

The Boss SL-2 is an inspiring creative tool filled with colorful sonic grooves. This BOSS original chops your sound into unique percussive patterns — including many processed with internal filters and effects — and provides multiple output options that bring grooves to life across the stereo field . Evolved from the legacy SL-20 Slicer , the SL-2 offers expanded capabilities while shrinking the size to the pedalboard-friendly BOSS compact format. Instantly elevate performances with 8 8 onboard patterns and tap into hundreds more via the BOSS Tone Studio app. Grab the knobs to tweak audio slices on the fly and sync to songs with tap tempo and MIDI. Fun and easy to use, the SL-2 brings fresh musical power to all types of creators, from guitarists and keyboardists to loop performers, DJs, beatmakers, and beyond.

Shape Your Groove

With the SL-2’s efficient interface, you can dial in sophisticated textures in seconds. Use the Attack control to shape the edge of the waveform for everything from hard-chopped slices to soft, fluttering movements. Then tweak the waveform’s length with the Duty control, going from sharp, percussive transients to longer, fuller audio blocks. Adjust the tempo with the dedicated knob or hold the pedal switch to engage tap tempo mode for hands-free control. And with the Balance knob and +/ - 12 dB of out put level adjustment , you always have complete control of the mix.
