Aimed at electronic musicians, sound designers and installation artists, Iota is a Max For Live granular looping instrument that wrings endless creative potential out of even the simplest samples, via an inspiring graphically-driven interface.

Iota features a spectrogram of a sample in which you can draw individual loops or voices for playback. Loops appear as rectangles designating their audio filtering, start position and window size. Each loop’s parameters can be customized and recorded in an internal automation system. Loops can either playback simultaneously or be triggered individually by assigned MIDI note messages.

      This is quite the special device. Always surprising and fun to play with, I can get lost in it for hours. Great for building ideas or just adding some spice to a composition. Powerful yet intuitive! Love it!

      I bought Iota and Factorsynth today, explored them both playfully and wow… these are creativity tools like I was looking for without even suspecting it.
      Conclusion: unimagined possibilities for little money. buy.

      details:
      in my first (simple!) test i had “factorized” a 4 bar tape recording in Factorsynth. i faded out rhythmic elements, bass and piano. what was left were parts of the solo instrument with an interesting sound aesthetics. exported and with a portion of valhalla a really good start. i imported the new file into iota and created a rhythmic ambient chord accompaniment with three zones.
      both tracks together a great foundation. let’s see where i end up with it…

    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.
