Max for Live devices designed and programmed for use in Ableton Live Suite 10.
A collection of three Max for Live devices for letting your audio run wild: Send, receive and side-chain any audio source to anywhere and anything. This pack requires Ableton Live Suite 10.
Drop the DRD_Send~ in the middle of any device chain and route the audio to anywhere in or outside of your Live set for further processing. Link the send level to the containing track’s volume control for “post fader” style effects and use the internal delay to correct any phase issues or for creative sound design.
Slide the DRD_Receive~ between any signal flow and grab audio from anywhere either internal or external to your Live set. Link the receive level to the containing track’s volume control for “post fader” style effects and use the internal delay to correct any phase issue or for creative sound design.
A subtle enhancement to the Envelope Follower, the DRD_Follower~ allows you to side-chain any eight parameters to any internal or external audio source.
A collection of two Max for Live devices for sequencing and synchronizing your modular synth. This pack requires Ableton Live Suite 10 and an audio interface with DC-coupled outputs.
Designed with the Push 2 in mind, the DRD_Pitch&Gate.CV~ can transform and calibrate any MIDI note to any voltage and gate signal for sequencing hardware synthesizers via CV. Pair this device with Live’s Tuner to find specific notes or let your ear guide you to unfamiliar and uncharted scales.
Simple and yet exactly what it needs to be, use the DRD_Clock.CV~ to synchronize your modular synth to your Live sets. This device supports direct routing to your audio interface, variable clock rates from 128th-notes to dotted whole notes, and a customizable pulse width.
A collection of Max for Live devices designed to integrate perfectly with Live’s session view workflow. Both devices automatically monitor, store, and recall their settings with their track’s currently playing clip allowing you to move beyond the rigid walls of composing within MIDI clips while still controlling your performance flow with the Session view.
The DRD_Arp.midi is no ordinary arpeggiator. It brings together two levels of complex polyrhythms with either per step or per division probability controls. Begin by setting the Pulse. Then enable or disable each step, set the step’s individual probability and how many subdivision (1-8) the step will be divided into. Finish designing your arpeggio by setting what combination of internal patterns will determine, advance and output the next note.
are described in semitone relationships to the received note. The rhythmic patterns are specified by how many note events must be received before the next note will be output. Try dropping several DRD_LineSequencer.midi in parallel within a MIDI Effect Rack for generating chord progression, or place them in series along with other MIDI effects for more unpredictable results.
The DRD_LineSequencer.midi uses text to describe simple melodic and rhythmic patterns that can yield complex and evolving musical results. The upper left and right describe the transposition and rhythmic patterns separated by a “<.“ The lower sections describe when to advance from one pattern to the next. All the patterns are in relation to incoming MIDI note events. The transposition patterns
A companion device to the DRD_LineSequencer.midi, the DRD_xTrigger~ allows you to use an external audio source as the trigger for a DRD_LineSequencer.midi.
Here are some of my older devices that may still be useful.
The DRD_DigiWave~ is a polyphonic synth with four oscillators that each have their own definable wavetable.
The DRD_Lock'd-FO~ can modulate any parameter in Live at any synchronized rhythmic relationship. Choose from four different waveform types to create a wide variety of pulsating effects
A stereo delay that is capable of synchronizing to any complex rhythmic relationship.
DRD_M2T is intended to make managing Ableton Live Sets for Multichannel performances easier by automatically mapping the Master Volume slider to any track by simply adding the DRD_M2T anywhere in the track's device chain.
DRD_M2R is intended to make managing Ableton Live Sets for Multichannel performances easier by automatically mapping the Master Volume slider to any track by simply adding the DRD_M2R anywhere in the Return track's device chain.
