Isotonik Studios has announced the release of Lambda II, a Max for Live device by Riccardo Sellan.

The real-time granular effect for Ableton Live is simple to grasp and devastating with its sonic capabilities.

It allows you to granulate the incoming audio signal in real-time or to granulate a frozen portion of it through a 8-voice polyphony. The incoming audio can be viewed through an easy sonogram.

Lambda II can also generate grains in sync with the Ableton Live tempo working as a step sequencer. The grains can be generated via MIDI input. Pitch and amplitude parameters can be individually applied to each voice.

Lambda II features

  • 8-voice polyphony.
  • Live/Freeze mode: Freeze audio input to work on the frozen buffer audio portion. If it is Off, Lambda processes the audio input in real-time.
  • Sequencer mode: Grain generation in sync with Ableton Live tempo.
  • Pitch: Individual pitch shifter for every voice.
  • Delay: Delay and feedback parameters for each grain.
  • Filter: The whole spectrum granulated and filtered through a 8 band-pass filter.
  • MIDI input: Play grains via MIDI.
  • Amplitude: Individual amplitude parameter for each voice.
  • Spray: Stereo spatialization.

The device is available for purchase for £20 GBP incl. VAT.
