Project Description

Max for Cats Vintage Bundle

The "Max for Cats Vintage Bundle" contains "Color" and the "MSE Synthesizer System", four Max for Live devices in total, created by Max for Cats.

Color by Max for Cats

Simulate sounds from the past to create the future.

Color is a sound texture device to bring the feel of analogue media such as vinyl or tape to your digital recordings. Add different types of vinyl noises, hiss, drive and wobble to your music. Color’s filter effects also fit right into the most modern club track.

It works great on drums, synths, keys etc. but also on full mixes of every musical style. Whether you are scoring a film, creating EDM or writing experimental music, Color offers a unique sonic palette to inspire your productions.

The sound of analogue machines

No matter if your music needs just a touch of drift and movement with a hint of saturation or if you want to mangle signals almost beyond recognition, Color is at your fingertips with a simple yet powerful control set. 

Color works with live input or prerecorded audio and is easy on your CPU. For full control, any of the sound colouring sections can by activated individually while Dry/Wet blends the original signal with the coloured signal. 

The sections:

Vinyl:

Different types of vinyl noise can be added and adjusted in volume and tonality (pitch). Add also hiss in this section (a classic tape noise). The Duck switch allows to make the adjusted noises only audible when music passes through the device.

Wobble:

Simulate tape fluctuations and tape flutter effects. This reproduces the mechanical characteristics of old tape machines.

Phase:

Align/misalign the phase of the signal.

Drive:

Add raw distortion. Soft switches to a slightly more mellow distortion type. Limiter prevents the signal from overshooting, when activated.

EQ:

A powerful 3-band EQ, fully parametric with adjustable Mid-Q.

Output:

An additional Post-Gain allows for gain staging your signal before it leaves the output while Dry/Wet lets you adjust the overall effect signal.

MSE Synthesizer System by Max for Cats

The MSE system brings classic technology and the associated playing style into the modern computer age.

The MSE Synthesizer System consists of three components: the synth module, the Quad, four of the MSE synths stacked together, and the SEQ8, a step sequencer.

MSE Synthesizer Module

The MSE Synthesizer module is a small but very powerful and versatile high quality synth. It can be played in mono mode or 8 voice polyphonically.

  • Mono or 8 voice poly mode
  • Glide/Pitchbend
  • 2 oscillators (saw/pulse with PW)
  • Oscillator sync for pulse wave
  • Multimode state variable filter with LP, notch, HP and BP
  • 2 LFOs with several waveforms, sync or free running
  • 2 ADS envelopes
  • A sub and noise oscillator
  • Several modulation targets

Quad

The big Quad is four of the MSE synths stacked together and each MIDI note will sequentially play one of the four MSE modules - just like the old 1975 Four Voice Synthesizer from Oberheim. Each module can have it's own key split and can be programmed fully independently. A Unison mode will play them all together for ultra-phat bass or lead sounds.

  • 4 MSE modules
  • Keysplit for each MSE
  • Individual glide for each MSE
  • 8 oscillators
  • Oscillator sync for pulse wave
  • 4 multimode state variable filters with LP, Notch, HP and BP
  • 8 LFOs with several waveforms, sync or free running
  • 8 ADS envelopes
  • 4 sub and noise oscillator
  • Several modulation targets

The Quad Editor opens in a floating window

SEQ8

And finally, the SEQ8 is an analogue style step sequencer with 8 steps, swing, integrated MIDI scaling and Map function. The pattern can be transposed with incoming MIDI notes. This sequencer can be used with any synth, be it software or external hardware synths.

  • Sync or free running
  • Key transpose
  • Randomise for each row
  • 1- 8 note steps
  • 1- 8 octave steps
  • 1- 8 velocity steps
  • 1-8 map steps for free parameter mapping with smoothing
  • Swing
  • Note scaling
  • Direction: FWD (forward), BWD (backward), BAF (back and forth), ALT (alternate), RND (random)
  • Step mutes

Demos:

What you get:

  • two self-installing Live Packs with integrated lesson in Live's Help section
  • including presets

System Requirements:

  • Live 10 or higher
  • Max for Live
  • OS X or Windows
