Midi Waves is an experimental midi note generator and modulator.

Midi messages such as pitch, velocity, duration and gate are generated using LFOs that can be all set independently to create midi events and patterns that could otherwise be hard to achieve using a sequencer or a keyboard.

Because each item in the list has its own LFO, each of those LFOs can be offset from each other to create these unusual cascading events that go in and out of phase and go off kilter with each, other but are still snapped to a musical scale so they can sound quite pleasing and can enable you to come up with very interesting, beautiful phrases or perhaps weird ones or scary ones or perhaps nothing at all. It’s entirely up to you!

In Live, the output of the device can be routed to another Midi track where the notes it generates can be captured to regular midi, enabling you to capture moments that inspire.

    Very cool and flexible melody and rhythm machine. With great UI. Would be sweet to have a couple presets for it, the first thing I did to it was resave the initial preset to be more “initial” if you know what I mean. But I am looking forward to getting off work today and going to make some sweet stuff with it!

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.
