MaxforLive

Remember when a joint venture between Ableton & Cycling 74 was announced just a few years ago? Well with Ableton now owning wholly Cycling 74, we’re looking forward to an even tighter integration between these two powerful platforms and we fully intend to be at the forefront of developing new & innovative products for them both.
Max4Live accesses the Ableton Live API at a deeper level than allowed by simple MIDI mapping alone we have managed to solve some of the most popular feature requests seen on the Audio Production forums around the world wide web, you’ll find the results of our moments of inspiration with the MaxforLive Control Devices category.
Additionally, within this section of our catalogue you find MaxforLive devices dedicated to enhancing and indeed destroying your audio (or adding just a touch of glitch), creating and rearranging your MIDI and finally producing visuals out of the resulting inspiration.

PATTERN TRANSFORM

PHILIP MEYER MIDI TOOLS FOR LIVE 12

COMPATIBILITY: Ableton Live 12 Suite or Ableton Live 12 Standard with MaxforLive Installed

£7.00

Pattern Transform is a multi-function MIDI clip manipulator that is fantastic for creating variations on your ideas. It is probably the most powerful of all of my MIDI Tools. Want to take a beat but just thin it out by removing some of the notes? Or increase the freneticity of the beat by adding more notes? Or create some controlled melodic variation (in key, of course) within the course of a bassline. This device can do all of that, and more.

A multi-function transformer that uses a pattern to choose which notes to modify.

    DRAW

    PHILIP MEYER MIDI TOOLS FOR LIVE 12

    COMPATIBILITY: Ableton Live 12 Suite or Ableton Live 12 Standard with MaxforLive Installed

    £7.00

    Draw is a MIDI clip transformer for Ableton Live. It allows you to change pitch, velocity, and chance super quickly with your mouse. It’s basically a bit like using the mouse in the piano roll or velocity and chance sections of the MIDI clip, but way faster (and a bit less precise…which is a good thing!) I use this thing all the time to create quick variations of MIDI clips for my tracks.

      DIVS

      PHILIP MEYER MIDI TOOLS FOR LIVE 12

      COMPATIBILITY: Ableton Live 12 Suite or Ableton Live 12 Standard with MaxforLive Installed

      £7.00

      Divs is a transformer for Ableton Live 12 that subdivides notes in your MIDI clips to create ratchets, tuplets, nested rhythms. This device is great for adding decoration or rolls to rhythmic patterns.

      Subdivide a list of notes. Designed to be used in conjunction with Blocks to make nested rhythms.

        DEVELOP

        PHILIP MEYER MIDI TOOLS FOR LIVE 12

        COMPATIBILITY: Ableton Live 12 Suite or Ableton Live 12 Standard with MaxforLive Installed

        £7.00

        Develop reduces or increases the complexity of your MIDI clip over time. Say you have a pattern that you want to “build up” to by just playing fragments of the pattern, then, finally, at the end, the whole thing. Or the opposite – you want to remove an element from the mix, but not by bringing the fader down. Instead, just selectively remove notes each time the pattern loops. That’s what Develop does.

        A transformer that can make a pattern gradually appear or fade away.

          CONDITION TRANSFORM

          PHILIP MEYER MIDI TOOLS FOR LIVE 12

          COMPATIBILITY: Ableton Live 12 Suite or Ableton Live 12 Standard with MaxforLive Installed

          £7.00

          Condition Transform is a multi-function MIDI clip manipulator that helps you create variations on existing MIDI Clips. Like Pattern Transform, it allows you to selectively transform some notes in your MIDI clip while leaving others untouched. Notes are selected based on the note’s pitch, velocity, duration, or chance value. I built this tool to allow me to do ratcheting and subdivision precisely with complex MIDI clips.

          A multi function transformer that modifies certain notes according to a rule.

            POLYRHYTHM

            PHILIP MEYER MIDI TOOLS FOR LIVE 12

            COMPATIBILITY: Ableton Live 12 Suite or Ableton Live 12 Standard with MaxforLive Installed

            £7.00

            Polyrhythm is a multitrack algorithmic sequencer for generating a quick beat or melody. I really like using it with a drum rack to get a beat started. The length of each pattern can be set independently, which makes the rhythms it generates feel a lot less boring and loop-y.

            A multi track generator for creating polymetric and polyrhythmic patterns.

              £7.00

              Turing Machine is a MIDI Tools version of the Music Thing Modular Turing Machine sequencer. Its ingenious design uses a randomness and a 16-bit shift register to generate pitches and rhythmic patterns.

                COMPATIBILITY: Ableton Live 12 Suite or Ableton Live 12 Standard with MaxforLive Installed

                £7.00

                Phase Pattern is a rhythm and melody generator for Ableton Live. Basically, you bend time and that creates a rhythm. Got it? It’s great for “bouncing ball” rhythms like on Monolake’s Toku.

                A generator that creates rhythm by bending time.

                  £7.00

                  Blocks is a rhythm generator for Ableton Live that uses proportions to create uneven divisions of the MIDI Clip. You can think of it as an “additive rhythm” or a “proportional rhythm”.

                  Inspired by Sam Tarekajian and Alex Van Gils’ Nestup, a scripting language for creating nested tuples and other complex rhythmsA generator proportionately divides a clip to make rhythms.
