Spektro Audio has announced the release of GrainFlux, a Max for Live synthesizer instrument.
GrainFlux is a MaxforLive synthesizer that combines different synthesis techniques such as granular, wavetable, and subtractive synthesis to create unique and distinctive sounds.
It works by using audio samples to create two different waveforms which can be morphed and modulated. While GrainFlux has a modern and simple to use design, it still offers many powerful and creative ways for you to manipulate its sound.
Create anything from morphing basslines to evolving drones by controlling and modulating the Morph, Grain Size, Tilt and Spike parameters.
GrainFlux is available for purchase for $14.99 USD.

UplandToys has released version 1.2 of Midular, a free set of MIDI effect modules for Max for Live.
Midular is a (growing) set of MIDI effect modules for Max for Live. The modules can be chained together in a modular fashion to form any number of effect chains. Used in isolation, they can act as quick problem solvers, such as quantizing notes in realtime, or delaying a certain set of notes. However, it is when multiple modules are chained together that the power of the modular aspect becomes apparent.
Changes in Midular v1.2
- Added two new modules: OneNote and Timer.
- Buffer now supports different play modes (up, down, up/down, random).
- Bug related to playback in buffer fixed.
- All devices resaved in latest version of MAX (v6.1.8). This fixed an issue where the modules would not load properly on certain setups, possibly related to running in the 32-bit version of Live & MAX.
Midular 1.2 is available to download now.

K-Devices has announced the release of TED, a highly editable LFO “smart tools series” Max for Live device.
You can morph between several waveforms, and work on resulting signal with a sample and hold circuit, and effects. You can easily obtain complex modulations.
A nice feature: you can choose to modulate by looping cycles, exactly as you expect from an LFO, or triggering a given number of cycles.
TED is also CV/GATE compatible, so it becomes an useful tool when you want to inject some modulation in an Eurorack system, and other analogue equipments.
TED is available for purchase for 5 EUR.

Whitebox Synth Makers has announced the release of Whitebox Mallets, a free Max for Live device for Ableton Live.
An update of my Pixiephone from a while back.
What’s new? Added BUZZ, SPACE and FILTER to get more variety and some extra dirt. More control over short release and deader resonances.
Capable of sounds ranging from wooden marimba to metal glock to harpsichord.
Don’t get excited though.
But do look at www.whiteboxsynthmakers.com for more free Ableton and Max things.
