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.

Final Live 9 update.
PerforModule locked himself away and got out his spreadsheet, the challenge to come up with a pack of grooves that can transform static boring loops and give them back their swing! Within the Groovification Ableton Live Pack download, which installs directly into your library, are a wealth of groove files based around three distinct flavours:
Mathematical Grooves – Equips you with a huge folder of 80 grooves all based on different mathematical number sequences with which to bend and pull the rhythmic timing of notes. Want to add a bit of swing to something but are sick of standard groove styles? Works by delaying certain notes forward or backward in time, and you can always use the global groove parameter to apply anywhere from very subliminal to very overt changes. Equip your library with a variety of interesting patterns
BreakFill Grooves – Impose break, crescendo, and decrescendo style “fill” patterns onto audio or MIDI clips with 24 different grooves, arranged by timing interval. For example, the “16th FadeSwell” groove will gradually fade notes out, and then back in, over the course of a measure. Fun for creating momentary fills live, or for compositional inspiration in the studio.
Quantizer Grooves – Six utilitarian racks which do the same thing as applying a given Quantize command to a MIDI file, but unlike that it can be done on-the-fly, is applied in a nondestructive manner,(add and, remove comma) you can do it to audio as well. Useful for forcing loose notes to align to the grid. Applying the “incorrect” grid can be interesting for experimental purposes.
