UPDATED: Now LIVE 10 Compatible

Smart is a Max4Live device that can be used to control up to 8 individual parameters at a time. Each parameter gets it’s own Smart Graph where you can draw how you’d like the parameter to be modulated as the main dial is turned.

Like Macro Mapping in an Effects Rack you can define the minimum and maximum value for the parameter range, however uniquely you can define when the parameter begins and ends reacting to a master dial being turned. You can even plot a specific path for the modulation which can also be curved…

Developer: Isotonik Studios
Compatibility: Ableton Live 9.7 | Live 10+
OS: Mac & Windows
Min. Requirements: MaxforLive is Essential

Q, Do I have to have MaxforLive Installed?

A, Absolutely, Follow is a MaxforLive device so won’t work without it.

Description

Smart is a Max4Live device that can be used to control up to 8 individual parameters at a time. Each parameter gets it’s own Smart Graph where you can draw how you’d like the parameter to be modulated as the main dial is turned.

Like Macro Mapping in an Effects Rack you can define the minimum and maximum value for the parameter range, however uniquely you can define when the parameter begins and ends reacting to a master dial being turned. You can even plot a specific path for the modulation which can also be curved…

“Smart, is a mind-numbing rack that allows you to redefine how a parameter is modulating from a linear signal path. The modulation redefinition is achieved through the use of 8 Smart Graphs which make up a bank. And, the craziest part is that all of these modulations route back to one ‘Smart Dial’. Basically, one turn of a Smart Dial can wreak some serious havoc. Throw a few of them into your set and well… you’ve got a nuclear meltdown.”

ASK.AUDIO

In just one use case you could map the Track Volume, Bass, Mid and Treble so as the master Smart dial is turned the treble of the track will be brought in straight away, the mids coming in at a quarter turn and the the bass from the halfway point whilst the volume increases steadily…

With the actual values of mapped parameters displayed in the device setting up is simple, and when using with an Ableton Push TWO you’ll benefit from seeing the correct names on Push’s screen. Just click on a parameter in Live then click on an un-mapped Smart Dial, choose whether to have the progress as standard or reversed and set the Min & Max. It’s as simple as that to get up and running

NOTE: Also available as part of the Modular Series

    Extremely next level device. I had been looking for something like this for awhile and existing devices made by other people were wonky, buggy and not nearly as well thought out as SMART. Rather than modulation working as A to B,B to A or somewhere in between, SMART allows one gesture of a knob movement to go from a-b-c-b-d-a or anything else you can imagine. It opens doors to audition sound design ideas on the fly in a dynamic way that is only otherwise possible through static tedious manual automation in Ableton. Supremely useful to audition what multiple parameter automation will sound like across multiple channels, instruments and effects alike. The GUI is clever in it’s execution. It’s easy to use and it’s only limited by your imagination. Good stuff!

Isotonik Studios

Isotonik Studios is the brainchild of Darren E Cowley, a DJ by trade he turned to Live to produce perfect Studio Mixes. Soon he was lost in a world of MIDI Controllers and then MaxforLive. Joined by so many talented developers Darren’s main job these days is to curate the content and search out new talent to bring to the Isotonik Studios website.

SMART FIVE released – Live 10 Compatibility

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.
