Sonic Faction tells us that Tricky Traps is a bundle of 16 creative contraptions for Ableton and Max for Live. They say that the collection includes unique step sequencers, MIDI effects, audio effects and instruments which you can mix and match in any order, allowing for near infinite sound possibilities.
A spokespeson told us, "Tricky Traps are made to perform simple tasks in a playful, intuitive fashion. Combining them together can trigger chain reactions which lead to happy accidents. Tricky Traps' diverse range of devices are quick to pick up and made for hands-on play. Its quirky sequencers and playable modulation tools provide an inventive new approach to familiar music-making processes, while its set of no-nonsense instruments come with stripped-back sets of tweakable parameters. Each MIDI device and audio control effect can be accessed via a customized Push grid, giving you a range of tactile sequencing options that are totally new to Push. It works with Launchpad Pro/Mk2 as well, or your MIDI keyboard."
