bcResonCtrl is not only lots of fun to use, it’s also extremely useful to generate harmonics from melodies or even strange hybrid melodies out of beats and percussion. It achieves this by hooking into the Live API of a selected instance of Live’s Resonators audio effect and converting MIDI note numbers and velocities into control parameters for it. I love using Resonators and will definitely add bcResonCtrl to my folder of favourite Max for Live devices.
How it works:
- Place the device on an empty MIDI track. Either arm the track to play on the fly, or add a MIDI clip that contains the notes to be played. The played notes will trigger the effect.
- Select the track that contains the Resonators device as well as the device itself you want to control.
