The Arcade Series One is a collection of MaxforLive Generative Sequencers that can be used on their own or integrated with Ableton Live supported controllers. Designed and created by Ableton Certified Trainer Mark Towers each device takes it’s inspiration from the hours spent in front of flickering screens down the local Arcade.
“When i first loaded up Asteroids i had a melody going in seconds, i keep going back to it in moments where i lack inspiration, it never fails to deliver! I can’t wait to see what Mark and the rest of the Isotonik Crew come up with…”
Each generative sequencer works in standalone mode or can be controlled directly by the Ableton PUSH & Push TWO or Novation LaunchPad & LaunchPad PRO!
Notes are played when Asteroids collide, add more Asteroids for more notes and turn on the Ghost Machine for Echo Notes…
Operational in Note or Drum Rack mode you can use multiple versions of the device with different instruments and create a track from scratch.
With control over the direction, path and speed of each asteroid you can quickly come up with some madly addictive melodies and rhythms…
Next up is PolyPin a Polyrhythmic Performance Sequencer inspired by Pinball. Up to 8 sequencers run in sync or independently using specially developed sequencer modes:
- Probability for creating random chance based beats
- Euclidean for exotic polyrhythmic patterns
- Classic for retro 16 step sequencing.
Inspired by the Gameboy classic, we use the blocks principle to create Chords and powerful Arpeggiator sequences.
With device lock now common to all of the Arcade Series you can have your Ableton Push playing Tetriq whilst your LaunchPad smashes PolyPin around!
The original device that acted as the inspiration for the whole series, this is based on the classic Atari game, simple to set up and a breeze to use. Instant Generative Sequencer joy!
