Cycling '74 Brings Edit Button To Ableton Live

Max For Live Opens New Doors      24/11/09

Cycling '74 and Ableton have introduce Max For Live - a visual programming toolkit that adds an "edit button" to Live.

Though Max For Live is just out, beta testers have already been giving it a workout. Here are some examples that demonstrate the types of doors that Max For Live opens up for Live users:

Buffer Shuffler, above, is a "premium" audio effect that comes as part of Max For Live.

 

Here's a demo of m4l.lab.serialin - an Arduino controller for Max For Live. A 4-control sensor is mapped to MIDI control messages that can be routed inside Live for events or modulation.

 

SevenUpLive 2.0 is a complete port of SevenUpLive to MAX For Live.

7up Live is a Java application that combines 8 different monome applications into one interface. With it, your monome or monome-style device can communicate with Ableton Live via MIDI.
