K-Devices has updates its AutoBeat and Herse Max for Live devices to version 1.1.

K-Devices AutoBeat

You know, our goal as M4L developers is to release always new cool devices and continuously improve and update the existing ones.

Today we have good news, wether you already got our packs at Ableton shop, or not.

If you already own AutoBeat or Herse, well, it’s time to download again: we just release 1.1 version for both, and of course, they are free for you ;)
The updates improve the devices and add extra contents… Of course the new versions are retro-compatible with your existing presets.

If you didn’t get your hands on AutoBeat or Herse yet, this is the time: with the current -20% offer at Ableton shop, you can grab these amazing devices for, let’s say that, a ridiculous price: AutoBeat is 23€/31$ instead of 29€/39$, Herse 15€/23$ instead of 19€/29$.

Changes in AutoBeat v1.1

  • Improved GUI.
  • Improved behavior of scales: they now refer to the note 1, the one in the bottom left, as root note per each scale selected.
  • Added OSC support.
  • Added local step sequencer lock for global random and default functions.
  • Added minimum and maximum values for velocity randomization in the macro area.
  • Added more scales.
  • Added semitone transpose for note pads.
  • 6 new drum racks and 30 new Instrument Racks from Ableton Certified Trainers and producers (Afro DJ Mac, Federico Ascari, Franz Rosati, Hyena, Noah Pread, Piezo).
  • Other minor improvements.

Changes in Herse v1.1

  • Improved GUI.
  • Added OSC support.
  • Added External MIDI Sync support and settings.
  • Added “empty buffer on unlock” parameter.
  • Added left/right movement in the grid.
  • Fixed a bug that may cause sliders to do not behave correctly on and after high CPU loads.
  • Other minor improvements.

Since now both AutoBeat and Herse support Open Sound Control, two new Lemur template are ready to be downloaded for free.

AutoBeat and Herse are available for purchase at a 20% discount until January 15th, 2015.

NexusUI

Ben Taylor, Jesse Allison, and Yemin Oh have released NexusUI, a JS toolkit for easily designing musical interfaces for mobile apps and web browsers, with emphasis on rapid prototyping (nexusDrop) and integration with Max/MSP (nexusUp).

NexusUI is a JavaScript library of audio interface components that can control Web Audio or transmit OSC data to other applications.

NexusUI can be used to integrate directly with the Web Audio API in the browser, or to communicate with Max, SuperCollider or Chuck via server-side applications.

NexusUI is mobile-friendly and multi-touch compatible. It enables large-scale collaborative performances by distributing interfaces through a browser — something that many people have at home, in their bag, or carry in their pocket.

NexusUI is available to download at no charge. NexusUI is licensed as open source software (New BSD License).

Introducing MIDI HACK – a MIDI, OSC & CV focused hackathon

MIDI HACK is a 24h hackathon sponsored by Ableton, Native Instruments & Spotify celebrating the protocols (such as MIDI, OSC & CV) and technologies that are the backbone of analog and digital music creation.

MIDI HACK
The MIDI HACK weekend will offer lectures and performances from artists and creators. The focus of the event will be on letting our participants create new and ground breaking ideas.

The goal of MIDI HACK is to bring together industry leaders, interesting start-ups, software developers, hardware fanatics and musicians who push the envelope of music creation, and to spawn great and creative ideas for the future. Ever wanted to rip apart MIDI controllers to create a new one? Maybe write a new VST or AU? Or how about finding new ways to perform? Then this is the hack for you.

The name MIDI HACK derives from the midi protocol that has defined music creation for more than 30 years. Together with OSC (Open Sound Control – an open source version of the same idea) and CV (Control Voltage – used to control analogue synthesizers) they are the three pillars of music creation today whenever there’s a synthesizer or computer involved.

A hack is a abbreviation of hackathon, a defined space that during a limited tine engages people in overcome a defined target or investigate a certain subject. Midi hack is aimed for the people who love music creation and sees a potential for involvement within the area.

MIDI HACK will take place May 17th-18th, 2014, at Spotify HQ, Stockholm – Sweden. The application form opens Tuesday March 18th, and closes March 30th, 2014.
