One of the most attractive elements of Ableton Live is its use in a Live performance context, you do the work in the studio then take it out on the road!
At the heart of Isotonik Studios is our obsession with Ableton Live Controllers. We simply can’t collect enough of them it would seem. Built up in a pile in our dining room we move through them changing our minds almost weekly on which one is the best.
The simple answer is that none of them are completely perfect, and that’s where we come in.
We’ve got a range of Control Surface Scripts for controllers that don’t usually get Ableton Live integration and for others we offer upgrades on the standard scripts with things like advanced Parameter and Mix Control.
Within each controller section we also list the integrated MaxforLive devices we have on offer, these work through the control surface to add layers of additional functionality, check out our Performance Templates for even deeper integration!
This Control Surface Script for Ableton Live extends the use of the Allen & Heath K1 & K2 including the Ring Focus Box and Mixer Control
Crossfire Euclidean Mode is a MaxforLive MIDI Sequencer that can be controlled using the AKAI Fire when used in conjunction with the Crossfire Control Surface Script
The Arcade Series is a collection of MaxforLive Generative Sequencers that can be used on their own or integrated with Ableton Live supported controllers. Designed and created by Ableton Certified Trainer Mark Towers each device takes it’s inspiration from the hours spent in front of flickering screens down the local Arcade.
The Arcade Series Returns is the follow up to the hugely successful MaxforLive Generative Sequencers the Arcade Series ONE. Designed by Ableton Certified trainer Mark Towers and inspired by classic retro Arcade Games each one can provide inspiration for rhythm or melody!
Frogger is an 8-step gate sequencer inspired by the classic video game and electronic gate sequencers. Via the mouse or control surface you set the pitch/octave for each step. When the sequence lands on the step the note is triggered. All pitch values conform to the globally selected scale with individual octave control per step.
Ghosts is a random looping melodic sequencer inspired by the classic arcade game PacMan (but it hasn’t got the hero in it!). Originally part of The Arcade Series Returns it’s the follow up to the hugely successful MaxforLive Generative Sequencers the Arcade Series ONE. Designed by Ableton Certified trainer Mark Towers and inspired by classic retro Arcade Games each one can provide inspiration for rhythm or melody!
Across the Arcade Series Returns is an inbuilt loop feature which can work on an individual element or globally. When you come up with a rhythm or melody you want to save you can also press a single button and export the pattern directly into an Ableton Live MIDI clip.
