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.
Now updated for Live 11, these devices generally do one thing and do it well, you can use them by installing the .alp file from your download and drag then drop them from the packs section of Ableton Lives Browser.
Intended to appeal to the “Ronseal” principle (it’s a brand of outdoor varnish here in the UK) these devices do exactly what they say on the tin!
They’re designed in some cases yo focus on the currently playing clip within a track so will automatically update their focus when a new clip is launched, you can then MIDI Map the controls within the device to give you control over your live performance.
I always struggled MIDI Mapping the Live tempo to a dial or a fader, unless I set the range to exactly the number of steps of the dial then I couldn’t accurately predict what changes I would be making, if only I had a load of endless encoders to be able to map…. Sadly not so that’s where this device comes in.
It allows for you to control with a dial or buttons incremental increases and decreases of the tempo on a relative basis top the current tempo!
Many people like to set their time signatures by triggering a scene containing the information, but what if you want a set of buttons to be able to trigger the change on the fly, well here you go!!
If you’ve got into streaming over the last few years you’ll probably be familiar with the Twitch feature of capturing clips of your performance. Well this device does exactly that without needing to set up a resample track in advance, just drop the device on any track, set the file location and choose the file settings.
Then with one press of a button you’ll instantly record a clip onto your hard drive!!
