Streamline your DAW workflow with Bridge

Meet the strongest link in your production chain—Splice Bridge. Bridge lets you preview samples in the key and tempo of your DAW session, before you buy them, so you can save time, save credits and maximize your creative energy.

Get Bridge via the Splice Desktop app

Bridge is a free plugin, available to all Splice Sounds subscribers. It runs in your DAW and syncs Splice Desktop to your track’s tempo and key. Transpose settings let you match the key, while tempo controls allow you to switch between regular, half-and double-time.
