This is a pack of 3 Polyphonic Midi Effect MaxforLive devices for Ableton Live based on the idea of a classic bouncing ball delay to help create some interesting sound design. All of the devices have exactly the same controls, but function a little differently.

Gravity Delay is a classic bouncing ball style delay

a) The time controls can be set in ms or sync time values and this will be the amount of time between the original note and the first repeat. Each successive repeat will then come more quickly as gravity acts on it.

b) The slider on the left acts much like a feedback control and will set how much the velocity will drop over the successive repeats.

c) The knob in the centre controls the probability of the device acting on incoming midi notes, much like the devices in the Chance 10 pack.

d) The slider on the right controls the rate of gravity which acts on the delay time.

e) The Gravity Delay has a small knob to introduce randomization to the initial delay time.

f) There is a trigger button at the bottom to force 100% probability while the button is pressed down. When this button is released the probability will return to the amount set with the knob.

Rippler is essentially the same thing in reverse, as if a stationary ball starts to jump higher each bounce.

Rippler has exactly the same controls, but it works in reverse. The delay time will start from nothing and increase according to the (anti-)gravity rate until the space between notes reaches the amount set in the time section. As if the bouncing ball begins on the floor and makes bigger and bigger bounces.

Ripplecoil combines the 2 so the ball has increasing sized jumps and then falls down with gravity. They can be used to make some nice interesting sound design. All devices are polyphonic.

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.


LDM Devices

LDM Design is a project which started life in 2016, recreating Monome apps in Max For Live to use natively on the Launchpad Mini, which are still freely available on his website.He also created the popular glitchy multi-FX sequencer devices Manglerack and MangleFX, influenced by the legendary Illformed Glitch VST. Since then the project has expanded into making all kinds of M4L devices, always taking care in designing a clean, unique GUI.Many of his devices also show a love for introducing various degrees of chaos and probability into music production. His first release for Isotonik, the LP Pack, continued recreating and improving upon classic Monome apps and original ideas to expand the creative potential of the Novation Launchpad Mk1 and Mk2. Next, as a homage to the great Brian Eno and his creative processes, LDM then released the best-selling Chance 10 Pack, which is a selection of modules utilizing chaos and probability to affect various elements of production. There are a number of great free devices available on his website – Chords in Key converts single MIDI notes into chords based on a set key, Gravity Delay is a fun ‘bouncing ball’ MIDI delay, and Autosputter is for live glitchy audio slicing, based on the old Instajungle VST.LDM Design continues to work on projects for Isotonik and his own website which will be available soon.
