Desert Sound Studios updates Mk-iii drum machine for Live to v1.2

Desert Sound Studios has released version 1.2 of Mk-iii, a fully-featured modular drum machine built for Ableton Live.

Desert Sound Studios Mk-iii v1.2

The Mk-iii combines the latest music technology with classic synthesizer design. The result is a musical instrument that’s meant to be played.

The core of the Mk-iii drum revolves around two completely independant Max for Live devices, a step sequencer and a sample playback module. Though each device can be used on its own, the Mk-iii drum machine is only realized when the two devices combine into a single musical instrument.

Changes in Mk-iii v1.2

  • Unused parameters no longer affect Lives undo history.
  • Drum Module decay settings now load properly on startup.
  • Sequencer settings now saved with Live Project (v1.1).
  • Adds clear and reset functions to Sequencer (v1.1).
  • Adds new MK-iii Effects device (v1.1).

Mk-iii is available for purchase for $23.99 USD. Requires Ableton Live 9 Suite / Ableton Live 8 or 9 with Max for Live Add-on.
