In this third part of the mini series within With a Little Help from Max for Live we’re checking out the two remaining Max for Live devices from the free Inspired by Nature Live Pack by Dillon Bastan for Live 11. If you haven’t watched part 1 (Vector Grain & Vector Delay) and part 2 (Vector FM & Bouncy Notes) yet, I’d recommend doing this first.
The first device Emit, a visual granular synthesiser and Max for Live MIDI instrument, uses particles shooting across a spectrogram to show the grain of a played sample, while vertical movements represent filtering and panning. The second MIDI instrument Tree Tone differs the most from the other devices in the Live Pack. It is inspired by the fractal patterns of plants and lets you grow trees, each branch representing a resonator with different frequency, decay and amplitude values. So let’s have a look at both Max for Live devices and what sounds we can make with them.
Part 4 of the mini series looks at the Max for Live audio effect PitchLoop89 by Robert Henke, another free Live Pack by Ableton for Live 11.
