Liine has released Kapture, a free “total recall” Max for Live device developed alongside Richie Hawtin exclusively for his Plastikman Live tour.
The sounds and sonic signatures in Richie Hawtin’s Plastikman Live show are heavily reliant on complex configurations of sends, returns and feedback loops as well as combinations of instrument and effect parameters. Our challenge was to build a system to manage this huge number of parameters in a live scenario. Kapture is the solution to that challenge. Similar to a preset management system for the whole of Ableton Live, it allows you to Kapture the state of your set.
We’re now very glad to be able to release it to the public and to see how other people use it in performances and in the studio. Kapture is not a polished mainstream product but something developed for a very specific show. However, we think that it’s something that many people will find very useful if they are willing to get their hands a little dirty and tweak it to fit their setup.
We aim to continue releasing bits and pieces like this from the Liine Laboratory, more rough and ready experimental/custom devices and works in progress, alongside the polished, premium products such as Griid.
