Isotonik Studios has announced an update to Riccardo Sellan’s Max for Live device for real-time granular effect for Ableton Live.

Version 1.4 of Lambda II comes with various new features and improvements.

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.

Changes in Lambda II v1.4.0

  • Save frozen buffer within the project. It works with Collect All and Save, Audio Effect Rack, and Preset.
  • Buffer site maximum length set to 60 seconds.
  • The random position parameter is now working starting around the position value.
  • Fixed: No black window/screen when Lambda II is opened.
  • Optimizing general CPU consumption for GUI.

Lambda II is on sale for £9 GBP for a limited time (regular £18 GBP).
