I wrote about this Live Pack a while ago, but now it's finally here. 11 Max for Live devices allow you to connect Ableton Live to lots of things. Arduino, LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3, littleBits™, OSC and the web via JSON-based APIs. This opens up a vast array of connection possibilities.
The CTM is in full swing at the moment in Berlin. One rather interesting event amongst the many is the I/O Explore: Drop-In Workshop with Ableton. There, Ableton employees are currently showcasing an exciting soon to be released new Max for Live Pack.
These five free Max for Live devices are a colourful bunch of helper tools for all kinds of applications in Ableton Live. I'm sure you'll find at least one of them will enhance the way you work.
This Max for Live effect is something for everyone who always wanted to use OSC directly in Live. To turn your smart phone or tablet into a versatile controller.
K-Devices latest Max for Live effect is TED, a parameter rich LFO that can also be used as a function generator. With its signal, you can modulate any parameter in Ableton Live: other device parameters, any third party plug-in or Live itself.
TouchOSC is a modular user interface for OSC and MIDI control for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. It's been my favourite app/MIDI controller in the last years because it is so versatile.*
LiveGrabber is a series of Max For Live plugins that can send information of device parameters, track parameters, clip envelopes and audio analysis of Ableton Live to any device on the network that supports Open Sound Control (OSC). With the 3.0 beta Live can now also receive.
