    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.

    Pianerb by AVAL

    A realistic and usable piano soundboard that can be adjusted as desired, thanks to the few but very useful controls available that can be used as a creative and unique reverb system.

    The device relies on the physical model of a string, the waveguide introduced by Karplus and Strong. The Pianerb provides as many strings as the piano, including double strings etc, I/O equalization and a resonance system that emulates the material and size of the piano body.

    In a nutshell, Pianerb emulates the piano soundboard when sound passes through the strings, so it just works as a reverb in which you can play with age, body and strings!


    • Damping : decay time, emulates the damping of individual strings
    • Age : detune the second string of the single note, creating an old piano effect
    • Body : amount of filtering due to the body of the instrument
    • Size : size of the instrument body, modulates resonance frequencies
    • LP : input Lowpass Filter (12dB/oct)
    • HP : input Hipass Filter (12dB/oct)
    • Dry Wet : amount of dry or wet signal
    • Keyboard : choose which string to excite

    AVAL is a ridiculously small audio software house with ridiculously big dreams. it was born out of a need of two musicians (Edoardo Staffa and Francesco Paradisi) to create their own sound, own workflow, and somehow fill the space left by bigger software houses. that said, use and enjoy, create and be beautiful!
