Free Sample Mashing App Designed by Aphex Twin

A new sample chopping app has appeared on Github, which has apparently been designed by Aphex Twin - shared by Dave Griffiths. The even better news is that it works on PC and MacOS and is completely free!  The manual goes into more detail, covering the creatively named parameters. Here's some more info: 

Samplebrain chops samples up into a 'brain' of interconnected small sections called blocks which are connected into a network by similarity. It processes a target sample, chopping it up into blocks in the same way, and tries to match each block with one in its brain to play in realtime.

This allows you to interpret a sound with a different one. As we worked on it (during 2015 and 2016) we gradually added more and more tweakable parameters until it became slightly out of control.
