Controlling the Controller: A primer on repurposing controllers using Max4Live

I’ve been doing some more writing for the KMI blog,
mostly on Live and Max4Live. You can catch the second part of ‘Controlling the Controllers’ right HERE.

I discuss using the Live API in Max4Live to do some clip launching, mute and solo tracks, and control LEDs using a bit of Javascript.

The Little Midi Enveloper

A post from Ableton popped up on my facebook feed this morning, and I was surprised to find, after I followed the link, that they had included a device I made awhile ago in their three favorite new M4L devices!

My Little Midi Enveloper was based on the Little Enveloper by Maurizio Giri, but modified to work with midi as the source for modulation of parameters. This allows for all types of creative modulations. You can put an envelope on any parameter of the synth you’re playing. Or use a blank midi track to produce envelopes for any parameter in the set. You could even modulate the speed of the envelope with another envelope, for some rhythmically shifting modulation goodness.

You can check out the enveloper HERE.

And read the Ableton article HERE.

More M4L goodies on the way soon!
