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 Make NOISS Bundle is a collection of all of NOISS COKO’s MaxforLive devices released on IsotonikStudios.com. Not only that but we’ll be updating this bargain bundle each time a new product is released from this prolific developer!
The Control Pack features seven Max for Live devices (four plus alternative versions), designed as simple tools for randomization, organic expression and precise automation. Format all values and sources produced by these effects as MIDI data to control external instruments, or simply use them to affect any parameter inside Live.
Repeat Pro is a Max for Live MIDI effect, designed to easily program rhythmic and melodic patterns step by step, then played by synthesizers, samplers and other instruments, both inside and outside Live.
The follow up to the hugely successful Repeat device, Repeat PRO has been rebuilt from the ground up with a swathe of new features.
The whole device is exclusively driven by a sixteen step sequencer, which among other parameters allows to set a different note, velocity, length, octave, control and delay amount for every single step. Part of Repeat Pro’s magic resides on the uncertainty factor that surrounds its behavior and defines the state of its most important parameters.
Sempler PRO is a polyphonic sample playback instrument, designed to create complex patterns by performing simple actions. The whole device is exclusively driven by its integrated sequencer, which among other parameters allows to set a different starting point, size, pitch, level and delay amount for every single step. Each configuration will then produce a continuous stream of fragments, played one after the other to generate a unique arrangement that results from the combination of these little pieces and bits of audio.
Part of Sempler’s magic resides on the uncertainty factor that surrounds its behavior and defines the state of its most important parameters. These random functions make it very easy to produce a whole blast of ideas with only the need of a few simple operations.
An extra set of parameters reflect other global aspects of the instrument and help to shape each pattern even further. These control the sequence length, speed and direction, the envelopes that affect every fragment and voice amplitude, and a group of functions dedicated to the Frequency Modulation, Echo and Filter sections.
FM Delay is a stereo delay effect that offers individual time control for each channel, also including two oscillators as modulation source for both left and right values. Time and rate are expressed using different unit styles, such as musical notes, note durations (sync) or milliseconds/Hz.
This device covers a wide range of creative needs, besides being a classic delay effect, working as a completely versatile tool that could be applied to all kind of instruments and sounds. Using low modulation frequencies, it’s easy to produce clear tones that result in deeper and intense bass sounds. Higher values will add harmonic richness and overtones to the signal, similar to an overdrive or even a bitcrusher effect.
AM Module is a versatile and useful device that can be used to create auto panning, tremolo or amplitude modulation effects. It offers four different modulation waveforms and several ways to determine its frequency, covering a wide range that extends from 0.01 Hz to 12.500 Hz.
Medium-high rate values will add overtones and harmonic richness to the signal, creating a classic AM effect that could be applied to percussions, synths, or any desired instrument.
While working on sync mode, rate values will be synchronized with Live’s global tempo, allowing to generate rhythmic modulation patterns from pad or string sounds. A chain of two, three or more modules with different configurations, could be used to create polyrhythmic patterns and more complex results.
AM Chain is an audio effect that uses four modulation layers, where amplitude modulation frequencies are only defined using musical notes. For instance, if the selected note is A3, its frequency will be equal to 440 Hz.
Each layer has its own level, amount and rate configuration. Their individual outputs can also be routed to the next layer before going directly to the main output.
Delay Chain is an audio effect that uses four delay layers, where time values are only defined using musical notes. For instance, if the selected note is A3/440 Hz, time will be equal to 2.27 ms, which corresponds to its period.
Add notes and chords to percussive sounds or compose complex patterns by setting a group of simple automations.
Each layer has its own level, feedback and time configuration. Their individual outputs can also be routed to the next layer before going directly to the main output.
