Rhythmic gate sequencer

£11.00

Gator is a rhythmical gate sequencer effect for Max For Live. You can sequence 3 parameters, designed to be mapped to the gain of 3 individual FX chains in an Audio Effect Rack. You can load each chain with whatever effects you like and use Gator to open and close the gate for each channel. Mapping includes min/max parameter value, invert, probability per step, 2 separate parameters to map for each sequencer with individual ADR envelope.

      Gator is a cool and useful idea for an Ableton modulator, especially when used in conjunction with parallel effect/instrument chains. There’s a lot of features about it that make it really interesting and unique, but unfortunately It’s usefulness is somewhat undercut by the inability to automate or modulate the sequencer presets.

    INSTALLATION:

    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.

    The Gator MaxforLive device was inspired by the Alligator plugin for Reason, which splits audio into 3 chains using a different filter and fx in each chain. Then the gate for each chain can be opened and closed with any kind of rhythmical pattern. The Gator device takes the same concept but opens up the possibilities of a completely custom set of effect chains within Ableton’s Audio Effect Rack. It also expands the concept with dedicated sequencers for each gate which include individual number of steps per sequencer and probability per step.

    Each sequencer can save up to 16 different sequences with variable number of steps and probability per step. Each of the 3 sequencers can also be mapped to 2 different parameters in Live, making 2 groups of 3 mappings, and each group has its own ADR envelope for the steps. Using the ADR envelope, you can set how fast the gate opens and closes with each opening of the gate. So we can connect mapping 1 to the volume of an effect chain, and have another mapping set as a filter envelope, or any other effect within that chain, with different settings for Attack, Decay and Release. The parameter mappings can be scaled with minimum and maximum values and also be inverted.

    We can also turn off the sequencers and instead trigger the gates manually using the buttons on the device, which can be mapped to a midi controller or automated in Live.

    Using a chord pad, we can introduce varied and mangled effected versions of the sound punctuated rhythmically completely changing the sound!
