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.
Initial Release – 6th October 2023
This colorful device is an updated version of the nice little velocity sequencer originally included in LDM Design’s popular Chance 10 pack. reVel expands the idea to include a unique duration based mode and expanded functionality such as individual randomization per step.
With Sequencer mode, you set a fixed sequence of values up to 32 steps long, and each note will take the velocity level of each proceeding step in the sequence.
Using this mode you can add randomization amounts per individual step to create more variation in the output. However, if your sequence of notes in Live’s piano roll, or live incoming midi, varies in the distribution of notes in any section of time, the sequence of velocity values will fall out of step with the notes coming through.
You may want this as a creative way to make differing patterns, yet you may also want a specific flow of velocity values in each section of time. This is where the Function mode comes in!
With the unique function mode, you can set the flow of values over a specific number of beats, and then however many notes come through in each section, it will retain the flow of velocity values over time. Now we can get a specific groove and let the notes flow freely.
In function mode we get a global randomization amount which will define a maximum amount of randomization for any note that comes through.
