    Thanks for the article here. It’s boosted my web-hits and my confidence in the white boxes I am making. Recently hit a wall in the transition to Max 6 (still don’t like it apart from the natty flowing connections!) and realised I MAY need to learn some programming.

    If any one wishes to follow Whitebox on Facebook please do.

      You’re very welcome. You have some great sounding devices definitely worth a feature. :)

    Hi Madeleine,

    I liked your Glass Synth so much I enjoyed seeing how you made it. It inspired me to make my first very simple Live Pack using Whitebox 8-Box and Ableton’s fab ambient delay FX.

    Free to anyone to download (direct link below). If people want to verify the site first please go to

    Live 8, so it should be up-compatible. My 9 beta just ran out!
