Sure, you could do the math yourself when needed… but having access to these makes things so much faster.

SPL Divisors – Use when you want to combine a certain number of copies of something, with the sum at the exact same level as the original copy (for example, if you had 6 copies of a guitar part, you drop one instance of “SPL ˜6” preset onto each to make all summed together equivalent to the original).

SPL Multipliers – Use when you need something to be of a loudness exivalent to a certain number of copies of itself stacked at full power (for example, let’s say you have a mix with bass, guitar and drums, and the bass and the guitar are each doubled, but the drums are not. You could place “SPL x2” onto the drum group to make it as loud as if it were doubled).

Volume Divisors & Volume Multipliers – For when you desire to increment the loudness as it appears to a human ear (double level ~10dB instead of ~6dB like SPL). Note that this does not take into account or apply any sort of equal loudness weighting EQ contour. The actual resultant decibel level will of course depend on your physical setup.

SIL Divisors & SPL Multipliers – Use when you desire to alter level based upon the physical Acoustic Intensity (aka “Sound Intensity Level”), defined by wikipedia as “sound energy passing per second through a unit area held perpendicular to the direction of propagation of sound waves”. Maybe you could use this to estimate the level of large numbers of tiny sound-generating objects (e.g. 500 crickets chirping or the patter of 1,000 raindrops).

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.
