Turns your waveforms into glorious visuals

Chris Vik enters Isotonik Studio’s World Collection with his first set of visual devices, Spectral One, that will give you visuals that make your music look as good as it sounds.

Vik’s years of specialisation in Max and audio-analysis shines in this pack of MaxforLive Visual Devices that will dismantle your sounds into tiny fragments and reconstruct them on screen with his four, highly responsive and extremely versatile, audio-reactive visualisers.

All the devices are designed from the ground up to work with the World Collection’s color palette system, meaning no matter how you combine them, your visuals will always look right.

Spectral ONE is a collection of 4 MaxforLive Visual Devices and the World Viewer. Designed to add audio reactive visuals to your Ableton Live performance or production each World Module detailed below adds a different variety of visualiser to the final output which can then be mixed together and effected further.


Proc33d is a procedurally generated shape that evolves in tandem with your music; it literally ripples with every frequency it can get its grubby vertices on. Depending on your needs it can take the form of an amorphous, bouncing blob; or a jittering, highly strung, geometric form. Proc33d is strange and unwieldy; tame it, and you’ll be rewarded.


They say that being heard is close to being loved. Well Vertx8 listens and has unconditional love for any sonic mess you decide to cram in its inlets. It displays your sound as a cluster of frequency-dependent cubes that twitch, tremble and lurch around three dimensions with each and every shift in your spectral soundscape, from the subtle to the dramatic. Vertx8 is one of the most responsive devices in Vik’s series; it works over any sound, from percussive to melodic, or even over your entire mix.


Everyone likes spectrographs. Spectr3d will give you everything that a standard 3D spectrograph will give you, but it’s so much more than that. Dial it all the way up let it form an unfolding landscape that sits as a backdrop to your visual composition; or dial it down and position it in the corner as a futuristic 3D HUD that displays the frequencies of your mix in all its techy glory.


If Spectral One was a group of friends, waveViz would be the hot one. At first glimpse, it looks like a simple waveform display, but when you start exploring its wonderful three dimensional glory you’ll struggle to choose which angle you want to it to model your sounds from. From the front, waveViz will show you each shift in frequency as a detailed waveform; throw the taper fader up and watch as it folds over itself in a strangely satisfying contour. Peer over the top or to the side and you’ll see all the peaks and troughs of your music in a beautifully shaded sonic mesh. It turns your sounds into curves so supple your friends will be jealous.
