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.

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.

KNOBULATOR – The Knobulator is a MaxForLive device for mashing up audio in realtime. Turn the knob and the effect comes on, stop turning it and it turns off. Fantastic for live performance as well as audio productions.
It’s parameters automatically map with the Blue Hand control of supported Live MIDI controllers like the AKAI APC40. Turn your beats into wabbly crunchy glitches, run some synths through it for instant wobble.
The Knobulator is a performance based multi effects device for performing beat based, quantized effects with minimal fuss and complete ease of use. What makes it unique from any device like it is the way effects are triggered. You simply turn the knob, from any position, and the effect is active, keep turning to adjust the effect, then stop turning to disable. Simple. You can set the qunatize for not only the timing the effect is launched, but also the sweep of the knob thats modulating it.
You can change the effect in realtime whilst turning the knob too, to create exciting glitch effects that will explode. Beat repeats, stutters, reverse, tunrtable effects, filters, bit reduction, delays, grains, they’re all there, ready go to without mappinh anything. Great for djs looking for intersting things to throw into their mixes, or mashup dudes looking for something quick and easy with still loads of control. A popular choice!
