Drum Articulate by Max for Cats

Advanced drum programming with ease and in no time.


Drum Articulate is a MIDI effect that allows you to programme sophisticated drums and rhythms for any music style with ease. It can be placed on individual pads of an Ableton Live Drum Rack, used globally on a whole kit or even be employed for synth programming and effects. Effortlessly create drum rolls, flams, random triggers and more.

Chain them for more interaction.

Drum Articulate also does wonders to any other MIDI instrument or can be combined with other MIDI effects for even more fireworks. Seriously awesome to use in the studio and especially on stage!

A single MIDI effect with six different modes:


  • 4 triggers with a freely adjustable delay time between triggers
  • individual velocity sliders

Drum Articulate - Flam & Random modes


  • random triggers as long as a note is held down
  • define the trigger speed
  • randomise the velocity within a specified range


  • drum rolls as long as a note is held down
  • adjustable speed
  • automatic quantisation to Live's master tempo through ‘Quantized’ switch (only works with Live's transport running)
  • choice of triplet or punctuated note repeats

Drum Articulate - Repeat & Humanise modes


  • pseudo-random shifting of incoming notes in time to create a human feel

Time Designer:

  • allows for complex delay patterns for incoming notes
  • 15 freely adjustable delay lines
  • each with individual velocity value
  • global delay time setting
  • choice to pass or block original note

Drum Articulate - Time Designer & NoteRow modes


  • trigger note definable
  • up to 16 different MIDI notes definable to step through with each trigger
