Sonic Bloom has announced a free collection of Max for Live devices by Christian Kleine aka Max for Cats. The Studio Tools pack includes a phase scope, an oscilloscope and a signal generator.

The first two are visualiser tools for mixing, the signal generator allows for mixing with pink or white noise, or to generate a sine wave or pulse.

  • Phase Scope: Displays a Lissajous figure which shows the amount of stereo (that is, phase differences) in a dual-channel signal. It comes with two draw modes, adaptable draw size for the lissajous signal and draw grid that can be turned off. The view size can be modified and visual trails can be dialed in. You can also open the visual part of the device in a floating and size adjustable window.
  • Oscilloscope: Display the left, right or both channels. Settings can also be set to Auto for ease of use. The device comes with adjustable Gain and a few other parameters. The displayed waveform can thus be analyzed for properties such as amplitude, frequency, rise time, time interval, distortion, and more.
  • Signal Gen: Provides a sine wave, adjustable in either frequency or MIDI notes, a noise generator where white or pink noise can be selected and a pulse generator with adjustable interval. In addition the level and channel can be selected. The noise generators provide full stereo bandwidth.

The self-installing Live Pack for Live 11 Suite or Standard with Max for Live is available as a “name your price” download, including free.

Additionally, Sonic Bloom has recently also released a new free Live Pack with one of the sounds of the iconic Mellotron.

The 77th Live pack in the series features a Simpler preset as well as 4 fully macro-mapped Instrument Racks based on the individually sampled tenor sax preset for the Mellotron.
