One thing I really like about REAPER’s dynamic splitting by amplitude is the ability to constrain the number of slices in two modes. You can do it right to left (boring) or by ‘best’. Best produces quick results and is a fast way of splitting up your sound often in ways that would take ages aurally/manually. In other words its a nice way off of offloading some selection process.
Thoughts about including a flag for this in the slicing objects?
It also might raise some interesting questions about what you deem to be the ‘best’ and how applicable that criteria is across different segmentation techniques i.e novelty vs transient
