      Great product, I only wish I could use midi (or atleast assign midi) to trigger the output & that the output chords actually recorded midi. Right now the only way to use it is to click and play it with the mouse and record it with a resample track.

        You would have to use a separate track to record the MIDI from any MaxforLive device as their effect always happens after the Piano Roll. Some devices have the option to write the notes to a clip upon a click but not for this budget device I’m afraid.

    INSTALLATION:

    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.

    Strum Roll by LDM Design

    The Strum Roll device is designed to quickly and easily get guitar chords into Ableton. Transfer easily found guitar chords from the web onto the fretboard GUI without needing to transpose note for note into the piano roll. You can then use the strum settings to create articulated chord strumming patterns that sounds like a real guitarist. Sounds great with sampled guitar instruments or  use it on synths or any other instrument for unique sounds!

    Using the guitar fretboard GUI, you can easily click to insert a note for each string.

    Clicking the arrow buttons on the right will then play the chord, either up or down the strings.

    Using the Strum Time setting at the top will set the time delay between each string being played in the chord. 

    There are also parameters for Tuning, Octave, Randomize Velocity, Note display and MIDI notes to trigger the down and up stroke of the chord.

    Select from a number of different popular guitar tunings.

    Randomize Velocity will insert a random variation in the velocity level of the notes each time the chord is played.

    Click Note Display to show the notes on the circles for the notes you have set up.

    In order to easily sequence the chord playback, set up the midi notes for the chord strokes. Then you can create a midi clip and use those notes to play the chord.

    You can also lower the note length of the midi notes so that the chord doesn’t have time to play all the notes of the chord, to get more variation and articulation of strumming patterns.
