Samsara LE is an introduction to the feature set of the full Samsara Granular Looping MaxforLive device.
Aimed at electronic musicians, sound designers and installation artists, Iota is a Max For Live granular looping instrument that wrings endless creative potential out of even the simplest samples, via an inspiring graphically-driven interface.
Iota features a spectrogram of a sample in which you can draw individual loops or voices for playback. Loops appear as rectangles designating their audio filtering, start position and window size. Each loop’s parameters can be customized and recorded in an internal automation system. Loops can either playback simultaneously or be triggered individually by assigned MIDI note messages.
