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.

Max for Cats releases Ensemble & DiGiTAL for Live

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jun 12, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Ableton has announced Ensemble & DiGiTAL, two advanced synthesizer by Max for Cats.

Despite the name, Max for Cats is, in fact, the product of a human with an incredible passion for synthesizers. Ensemble & DiGiTAL, both now available as Packs for Max for Live, represent a lifetime of passion for both hardware synthesis and Max patching.

Max for Cats Ensemble

Based on classic 1970s string synths, Ensemble captures the spirit of weepy prog rock chords, retro-futuristic soundtracks, and bright disco stabs. Built-in phaser and chorus effects coat the sound in a proper vintage vibe – as a bonus, these effects also come with Ensemble as separate devices.

Max for Cats DiGiTAL

With elements of wavetable, FM, additive, and subtractive synthesis, DiGiTAL is a futuristic instrument designed for imagining new sounds. With beautifully-designed, friendly controls, a new sonic universe is at your fingertips.

Ensemble and DiGiTAL are available for purchase for 29 EUR each.

Surreal Machines releases Dub Machines for Ableton Live

Surreal Machines Dub Machines

Surreal Machines has launched Dub Machines, a collection of analog modelled dub delay devices for Ableton Live and Max for Live.

Whilst the designs of the Dub Machines devices take full advantage of their digital engines, their sonic power stems from analogue gear and the inspiration it provides. This means that once we‘ve studied, analyzed and recreated the analogue circuit with DSP… we start again!

At the heart of our design process, the technical model is subjected to ‚creative hearing‘ – we finetune everything by ear and challenge the model with creative ideas that transcend its original design. This can mean adding a dirty digital rectifier or pumping sustain into a pure and buttery reverberation system – the only concern being the Surreal Machines sound aesthetic, which is truly our own.

MAGNETIC is based on one of the most loved and tested tape delays but developed with digital twists.

DIFFUSE employs digital feedback network techniques with a nod to some legendary analogue hardware from the 70‘s-90‘s.

Our interfaces have been designed with musicians in mind: easy to use based on simple musical instinct, while opening the door to deep sonic exploration – for those on a quest for their very own, personal sound.

Dub Machines is available from Ableton for 29 EUR.

Spektro Audio has released DRG – Dual Rhythm Generator, a Max for Live device capable of generating clocks and rhythms that can be used with analog synthesizers and drum machines via control voltage.

Spektro Audio DRG

By using a combination of two clock generators and an optional boolean logic operator, DRG can generate anything from simple clock divisions to complex rhythms.
DRG is great for clocking analog sequencers, triggering envelopes, sequencing drum modules and etc.

DRG can be used in different situations. The workflow was thought out to work great both in the studio and in live concerts. Everything on the front panel, from the simple layout to the LEDs colors, was design to give you instant feedback of whats going on. Features such as the MIDI Controlled Presets let’s you add variation to your track and change the settings using either MIDI clips or any MIDI controller.

DRG requires an audio interface with DC-Coupled outputs or an Expert Sleepers ES-3 / ES-4 / ES-40 module.

DRG is available for purchase for $9.99 USD.

J74 releases StepLocker sequencing & modulation for Max for Live

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 27, 2014 - comment 0 comments

J74 has announced StepLocker, a new Max for Live sequencing and modulation device.

J74 StepLocker
StepLocker is based on the concept of parameter locking, whereby parameter settings can be associated (locked) to sequencer steps.

Besides the concept of it, one of the things I really tried to get right on this is the workflow. So in StepLocker parameter locking is very simple: Choose one or more steps in the sequencer, select a parameter in Ableton Live, set its value and lock it. You can do this for any parameter, in any device, in any track of Live.

On top of this I equipped StepLocker with classic step sequencer features, such as playback manipulation (step numbers, random step order, step lenght), value interpolation, value randomization and (post-locking) editing (such as copy, paste, erase).

StepLocker features

  • Up to 64 steps modulator with parameter locks for any parameter, in any device, in any track of Ableton Live.
  • Intuitive user interface based on simple actions: just click, set, lock and sequence. No routing or long menu’s involved.
  • Different modulation styles (Impulse/Hold, Gliding).
  • Real time sequencing controls: free step number count, step duration, random playback order.
  • Post-locking editing features: free editing of every recorded lock, randomization, shift values up/down, mute values, copy and paste sections.
  • Possibility of recording the modulation as Session clip automation or Arrangement automation.
  • Device state saved with the Ableton Live project.

The StepLocker device is available for $12 USD. Requires Live 9 or higher and Max 6.1 or higher.

Amazing Noises releases GliderVerb

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Mar 26, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Amazing Noises has released GliderVerb, a free Max for Live device.

Amazing Noises GliderVerb

GliderVerb is a “reverberator with glissandos” simulating a room gradually changing its shape. It is an expanded version of an algorithm created by James McCartney for his Supercollider 2 programming language.

The original algorithm had no user-variable parameters: this device adds a series of parameters to create a wide palette of effects; from evolving reverberations to granular disintegration to smooth resonances.

GliderVerb is available to download at no charge. Requires Live 9 and Max for Live.
