ReTex – World Collection Module

Price £10.99

reTex seems like a simple device at first; it’s a 2D plane covered by any image you put on it; but dig deeper and you’ll realise how many essential visual techniques can be achieved with it. Slowly rotate reTex and the 3rd dimension it sits in can be dramatically revealed. Layer multiple instances of reTex and offset the textures at different speeds to get a simply parallax effect (commonly used in animations) to give your visual set depth and movement. Use the caleidoscope parameter to collapse any image into a constantly evolving and folding geometric patterns. And of course, like all of Chris’ devices, the texture can be modulated by any incoming audio stream.

NOTE: THIS DEVICE REQUIRES THE WORLD VIEWER DEVICE TO RENDER THE VISUALS IT CREATES.

Q. What are the Minimum System Requirements?

A. Ableton Live 9.7 & MaxforLive 7

Q. What’s the Installation Process?

A. If the files provided end in .amxd then these should be downloaded and saved to a folder on your harddrive, the files can then either be dragged into your Live set with the mouse or you can add a file path to the folder they’re contained within in the Live Browser.

If the files provided end in .alp then these are Ableton Live Packs, double clicking them open will usually provide a warning regarding the files “Legacy” status, this is nothing to worry about, it’s just the only way we can make a pack that will install itself into your Live browser alongside the factory content.

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.
