TheFade is a Max for Live MIDI effect for mapping and modulating up to 8 parameters in Ableton Live. Inspired by the rhythmic crossfader movements found in turntablism and scratching, you can now implement some of these patterns in your own productions and performances.
TheFade offers a library of premade fader patterns and also lets you design your own shapes which can be stored in one of sixteen available slots. Pattern bank slots can be triggered by incoming MIDI notes, so you can play them on-the-fly or even by MIDI clips or arrangements. When triggered, fade patterns can be played as loops synchronised to Ableton’s master clock or as one-shots. Fade shapes can also be copied and pasted between banks, allowing for further experimentation and creative possibilities.
