Blue Screen of Death!

Price £5.99

BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death, remember?) is a stockastic sample freezing effect by StrangeLines.

What does it mean? Well, you could drop it onto a vocal track for a classy-chop effect, you could use it to turn any sound into a fresh organic pad, try it on a drum loop for example, but it’s also cool to use it as a gating effect and/or mixing it with the dry signal. in short BSOD makes you rhytmically freeze any sound source with extreme ease for whatever purpose you’re able to come up with.

Developer: Strangelines
Compatibility: Ableton Live 9.7.5+ | Live 10+
OS: Mac & Windows
Min. Requirements: MaxforLive is Essential

StrangeLines

Ernesto Cecco D’Ortona is a Sound Developer/Artist, User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) Designer, full-time nerd and of course Max for Live guru from Italy, based in Milan. He’s not new to the Ableton community and is mainly known for his sleek, innovative and easy to use FX plugins for Isotonik Studios & Audiomodern. You’ll find his work spread across the web and available on the best online marketplaces as well: Plugin Boutique, Beatport Sounds, ADSR and so on. He already developed some of the most unique, usable and weird M4L devices worldwide (inspiring Ableton’s Drum Buss with MouthBreather) through his own brand StrangeLines which is focused on bringing strong and unusual electro-neural vibes to the mix through “strange” instruments, both fun and fast to use in the daily rush of the busy music producer. Ernesto’s smart and visionary products feature special and almost pioneering custom-modeled controls (filter, chorus, neuro-style pitch shifting called “warp” and more) and, to date, his work has not disappointed a single reviewer to date, collecting amazing reactions from both users and popular entities such as Synthopia, Ask.Audio, ProducerSpotAbleton itself and many others. The story behind the name is quite interesting (Ernesto’s really good at picking names by the way, see BSOD): if you think about music and sound visually, you may picture in your mind piano keys, guitar strings, sliders or your DAW’s tracks and so on… What do all these have in common? Easy, from a newbie standpoint they’re all interfaces made out of “strange lines” and since to use StrangeLines tools you really don’t need to know much more, you may just enjoy a truly new and innovative sonic experience! StrangeLines is posting new videos about their latest experiments on their official YouTube channel, subscribe & hit the bell to never miss one! You can take a closer look at the StrangeLines project (and interact directly with Ernesto) on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter.

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.
