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.
V2 – Released 23rd March 2023
• New library contains over 500 scales.
• No more font dependency for installing Tritonet into the user library. Just click and save the modules.
• Note animation have been added (can be turned off from the input menu if needed)
• There is a new mode for the chord algorithm. Tritonet now listens to the MIDI input and translates chords into the Voices when the Chorder is off. In that sense, users can play their keyboard instruments– either as simple as triadic chords or full pianistic approach- and Tritonet transfers harmonic information to the MIDI and Audio modules with an appropriate voice leading. .
• The Learn tab has been added. This allows users to control Tritonet via four wheels.
• Performance toggles are added to modulate the harmony dynamically.
• A new design for the MIDI module. Now Tritonet has its own dedicated, CPU efficient and a single file MIDI module. (Place it before the virtual instrument)
• The MIDI module has its own input settings for the scale and the root. It allows users to automate the incoming scale and root, specific to each clip. This allows the use of different MIDI files with various tonalities to work together.
• MIDI Module can receive five individual harmonic zone information from Master Module. (S-A-TB-N) • N (neutral) stays fixed within the scale while SATB (Soprano – Alto – Tenor – Bass) are dynamically changing according to the chord information.
• A single file design for the Audio Module. It controls the native Ableton plugin Resonator (place it on the audio channel, also load Resonator and hit update)
• Now the resonator can also benefit from the Voices and Chords. Scale is fixed while Voice and Chord options are dynamic.
• Octave allows you to change the root note of the Resonator without changing the intervals in between. • Travel allows you to move within the scale up and down.
• There are also Decay and Dry/Wet parameters of Resonator that can be controlled from the Audio Module for the convenience.
Initial Release – 24th May 2022
Tritonet is a musical abacus which provides an innovative way of learning and applying music harmony. It makes learning music theory much more accessible by focusing on building the intuition behind harmony.
Tritonet can be seen as an evolution of the Circle of Fifths into the 21st century, enabling a wide array of possibilities for utilising music theory both in the traditional sense and in terms of exploring new territories.
In modern times, the artistic side of music has been overshadowing the fundamentally quantitative and aesthetic free part of harmony — and this is how it was seen in the Quadrivium. Tritonet is attempting to resurrect this side of music, by bringing back the attention onto the ratios and symmetries which underpin music harmony.
Learning music harmony in medieval times took more than a decade. The Guidonian hand method, introduced in the 12th century as a visual helper, revolutionised theoretical education — it allowed musicians to learn it in about two years. Tritonet, introduced a millennium later as an interactive visual helper, aims to dramatically shorten the duration of study required to internalise music harmony.
