Please see the Video Walkthroughs at the top of the page.
Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.
.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.
.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.
Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download, an abridged version of the installation will be shown further down this page.
ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.
Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.
So here it is, the culmination of years of work, the entire Alexkid Sequencer Bundles available as a single bumper pack!
COIN LOCKER BABIES – QUASI-EUCLIDEAN SEQUENCER / GENERATIVE SEQUENCER
Erm… How to describe this thing? It’s primarily an ambient pattern generator partly based on an Euclidean (non-common bar divisions) engine. With this patch you can randomly generate odd polyrhythmic melodies easy to fine tune or start from scratch for extra-curious sequences whilst remaining musical. Though some Artists have been using it lately in a full Techno set up.
Obtain -in a matter of seconds- relaxing, melancholic or eerie loops and patterns by combining one or more instances of the same plug-in triggering melodies through one of the 18 exotic scales. Ideal to sequence sine-wave plucks, kalimbas, mallets or any type of ambient FM sounds…
Each sequence triggers a certain amount of notes (trig value) per bar, time quantised by the value of the division (div/val) resulting in strange and organic rhythms
PROBABILISTIC SEQUENCER – 16 PROBABILISTIC STEP SEQUENCER
Sequencer with unique characteristics. It features two melodic lines and a probability line sequence allowing to alternate between both melodies. Each line has an independent length thus enabling complex polyrhythms and evolving patterns at the control of your fingertips. Generate exciting bass-lines with subtle variations or eccentric melodies in a blink. Use it with Soft-Synths as well as Hardware.
CUTE LITTLE SEQUENCER – 8 STEP SEQUENCER
Fun and intuitive 8 step sequencer with creative random features specially tailored for nowadays electronic music. Experiment with polyrhythms and forced scales. A perfect tool for generating unexpected bass-lines and intriguing acid loops at the press of a button. Use it with Soft-Synths as well as Hardware.
HATS4DAYZ – 16 STEP PROBABILISTIC SEQUENCER FOR HI-HATS
Yes, this is a Sequencer designed for Hi-Hats! Ever wanted to have variations happening on your Hats whilst maintaining full control on your parameters? This is the perfect tool as you can control the probability of play, accent and note PER STEP!
This means YOU can decide if it plays or not, or maybe, if it’s closed, open or sometimes one or the other. You can decide if the accent plays, or not, or sometimes.
Trig – Program your Sequence like a 909
Prob Play – 100% plays for sure, values below indicate the probability of play.
Prob CH/OH – 0% plays Closed Hat. 100% Plays Open Hat. Every value in between leans towards one or the other.
Prob Accent – 0% No Accent. 100% Accent is ON. In between values indicate the probability of Accent ON.
The NUPATTERN Random function has been fine tuned to provide Musical probability values and a good starting point to generate your Hi-Hats line.
Also includes polyrhythm functions and various play modes. Use it with your own Drum Kits or with your Drum-Machines via MIDI.
EMPIRICAL SEQUENCERS – 16 STEP SEQUENCER FOR ABLETON MAX4LIVE/ABLETON LIVE (2 VERSIONS INCLUDED)
The “Empirical Sequencer” is a bigger version of our favorite “Cute Little Sequencer”. It features the same ease of use and creativity of it’s little brother with a few extra features. We kept the main characteristics such as the independent sequence lines allowing polyrhythms, the randomisation and the forced scales that made the success of the “Little” version, but extended the number of steps to 16 and replaced the velocity sequence for a “Parameter Control” line for increased flexibility.
Two versions of the plug-in are included in the download to suit your studio needs:
Parameter Edition – Features a Live Parameter Control line assignable to any parameter in Ableton Live – great with internal synths or Ableton plug-ins. (e.g. you can sequence reverb sends, decays, or anything you can map)
Midi CC# Edition – Features a Midi Control Change # line assignable to any Midi CC# on the same Midi channel of your sequencer – great with external synths. (e.g. you can sequence your filter cut-off or anything you assign via Midi CC#)
The polyrhythm features on those lines will provide extra funk to your bass-lines and melodies, but line can also be used independently to automate (e.g) a Compressor value, or a Reverb. Unleash those unexpected sequences and loops at the press of a button.
PRESS4ACID – 8 STEP SEQUENCER
Press4Acid is a dedicated 8 step sequencer orientated for Bass-Lines and inspired by classics. It features independent Glide and Accent sequence lines, as well as creative random features, forced scales and polyrhythm options. An inspiring tool to control any monophonic synth or plug-in with portamento/glide such as (e.g.) the Roland TB-03 or NI Monark. Can you pass the Acid test?
16 Step Sequencer designed to trigger different values of your assigned parameters associated with any channel / Plug-in within Ableton Live.
PRESS4ACID ADVANCED – 16 STEP SEQUENCER
16 step sequencer designed specifically for generating basslines in monophonic glide enabled synths enabling you to create 303-esque patterns based on your own programmable scale with the click of a button.
A unique 8 Step sequencer allowing you to create slightly -or totally- offbeat Rhythms and African influenced grooves, individual control for syncopation and melody with pitch forced to your own programmable scale, programmable with the click of a button.
INCLUDED FOR LIVE 9 – Clap Machine
Featuring Auto-Play Mode this device triggers unique claps sequenced on the usual 2 and 4 or triggered via midi stroke. The sequenced timing can be loosened or tightened emulating real disco hand-claps and there are a multitude of settings allowing full control of character, tonality and stereo imaging.
