    Divisions by Dillon Bastan

    Divisions by Dillon Bastan is a groundbreaking audio software that revolutionizes the way music is composed and produced. This innovative tool allows users to dynamically divide and manipulate audio loops, creating unique and intricate musical arrangements effortlessly.
    With its intuitive interface and powerful features, Divisions opens up infinite possibilities for music creators to explore and experiment with their sound. Whether you’re a professional musician or an aspiring producer, this product is a game-changer that will take your music to new heights.
    Divisions is a MaxForLive MIDI Effect. Use various drawing tools to draw walls that balls can bounce off of. You can create up to 32 emitters to launch balls with different settings. When a ball bounces off of a wall, a MIDI note is output based on the settings of its emitter. Use Divisions to create various different MIDI effects in a less conventional way! Whether a sequencer, arppeggiator, melody/counter point/chord generator, note delay, and whatever else you come up with!


    The device, user manual, 30 presets


    • Various cursor modes for drawing walls, and more:
      • Emitter selector cursor for selecting, moving, and rotating emitters
      • Free draw tool
      • Line draw tool
      • Ellipse, rectangle, and triangle shape tools with rotation and arc options
      • Sine wave draw tool with phase and frequency options
      • Eraser and clear drawn walls function
    • Up to 32 emitters with independent settings that launch balls:
      • XY Position and angle of launching balls
      • Force of launch
      • Friction for the balls (slows them over time)
      • Chance of skipping ball launch triggering
      • Two ball removal modes: after a certain interval or number of wall hits
      • MIDI note pitch (the note it outputs when colliding with a wall)
      • Various pitch scale options and tonic option
      • MIDI note velocity
      • MIDI note duration with sync options
      • Modulation sources and bipolar amounts for the MIDI note pitch, velocity, and duration
      • Modulation options include: Ball position (X and Y), distance from the center, speed, angle, index of total balls, random spray, number of hits left
      • Functions for copy and pasting emitter settings to each other
      • NOTE / DISCLAIMER: Emitter parameters cannot be modulated, automated or mapped! This is to avoid creating 32 instances of emitter settings which would make long loading times for the device. To compensate for this there is an internal parameter automation looper for the emitters described below!
    • Various methods for triggering emitters to launch a ball:
      • Manual and auto triggering at a set interval
      • Various options for choosing which emitter is triggered
      • Ability to have incoming MIDI notes trigger emission and even control when balls are removed
    • Simulation speed option
    • Lock to transport
    • Various edge handling modes
    • Note output interval quantization
    • Emitter Parameter Automation looper, which loops changes in Emitter parameters
    • Attractor/Repeller for adding simple attraction physics to the balls
    • A small auxillary device called Divisions Listener, which allows sending MIDI notes from different emitters in once device instance to seperate tracks in Ableton so that you can control various instruments from one device.
