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.
Chance 10 Pack TWO – Released December 18th 2020
Functioning exactly as the Play device from the first pack, but instead of processing each individual note, this will set the probability of any chord getting through.
This device lets you set the probability of adding a 7th, 9th or 11th note to a triad. You can also set the probability of raising the notes to a 1st or 2nd inversion.
The device will calculate whether or not a chord is major or minor, and select the most likely fitting notes for that chord.
This device directly manipulates the contents of MIDI clips in the Live Set.
If note shuffle is on, then the pitch values of the notes in the clip will be shuffled between the existing notes. You can also randomize the velocity and length of the notes, relative to the original clip.
PLEASE NOTE: This particular device is not compatible with MPE Data, a warning will pop up if MPE Data is present within the clip
The DrunkNote device will output random notes within a set range and scale.
Any incoming notes will only direct the placement, length and velocity of the notes, the pitch will be replaced by the device.
The maximum distance between each successive note is set with the Steps knob, and so the note sequence will progress within these limits.
The Humanize device simply takes the incoming notes and delays them for a random amount.
The device will delay the start and end of the each note randomly.
This device will override the length of any notes coming through and generate random note lengths within the values set on the device.
Modeled after the Chance Repeat device in the first Chance pack, this one instead of repeating the original note, will play back a random (or fixed) note in response to any note coming in.
This device will act as a step sequencer for probability values to allow notes to get through the device.
This device allows you to go completely offgrid and generate random notes as if the wind is blowing on windchimes. The knob will allow you to change the ‘windspeed’, to speed up the generation of notes. Up to 8 notes can be generated.
This device is an arpeggiator, which although not exactly probability based, does include a random mode. Hold mode allows you to let go of the notes and it will keep playing, then when another chord is detected, it can either replace the held notes with the new chord or add new notes to the held notes.
