Live organizes multiple passes of an audio or MIDI performance into individual takes. Pick the highlights from each performance and combine them to create your perfect shot. Or approach sound design in a new way by collecting random samples from your library. Link two or more tracks to edit their content simultaneously. This makes editing multitrack instruments or multiplayer performances quick and easy while keeping everything on the tracks. This function also works for MIDI tracks. Plug in your MPE-compatible controller and immediately add curves, glides, and pressure for each individual note in a chord. Add subtle variations in expression, transform between chords, and create evolving sonic textures. MPE stands for MIDI Polyphonic Expression. This way of using MIDI allows MPE compatible devices to control multiple parameters of each note in real time for more expressive instrumental performances. Hybrid Reverb combines convolution and algorithmic reverbs. Place your sounds in any space, from precise real-life environments to those that challenge physical reality. Use the algorithmic side to add control and modulate the reverb tail, run it in parallel or in series with the convolution side, or play the hybrid reverb like a sound design instrument in real time.
Select a sound to listen to with various hybrid reverb presets. Divides the spectrum of an incoming audio signal into partials, then stretches, shifts, and blurs the result of a frequency or note in subtle or drastic ways. The MIDI Side Chain input also allows musicians to process key material and even play the device as if it were a polyphonic instrument. Transforms the sound into partials and sends them a frequency-based delay, resulting in metallic echoes, frequency-shifted effects, and reverb-like effects. The Freeze function captures and holds certain audio, freestyle or beat elements, for stuttering, glitching and fading effects. Create edgy glitch effects, delayed digital flashes and outrageous vibrato with this Max for Live pitch-shifter created in collaboration with Robert Henke and inspired by Publison DHM 89, one of the first digital effects processors. It is a flexible tool for adding character to sounds in the studio or for instant experimentation on stage.
