Robert Henke, co-founder of Ableton has released some interesting looking Max for Live devices on his website – http://www.monolake.de/technology/m4l.html. Devices include:
- The legendary PX-18 step sequencer
- Black – "A simple device which does two things: It displays songtime in hours:minutes:seconds- at least as long as you are working with a constant song tempo. And it allows to black out the computer screen while listening to the music…"
- Distance – "This audio effect device is for those who are into careful placement of sonic events in the stereo field."
- Circular Doppler – "Two virtual microphones rotate around a single sound source. Doppler delays, distance dependent amplitude modulation and filtering included. Movement of source and microphones synced to song position. This allows 100% reproducible effects."
- Grain Freeze – “A granular audio freezer effect. Creates lush textures out of everything!”
Timer permitting, he indicated he’ll be uploading more devices in the future.
