The second in a series of tutorials about nwdlbots, a suite of generative modules for Ableton Live.
This episode demonstrates the way in which nwdlbots can interact within a Live Set using two modules called “noodle control” and “noodle send”. By attaching noodle sends to each EventBot in a set, you can relay MIDI information to the control module, which collates the information and then feeds it back to the EventBots, informing their decisions regarding onset and pitch.
This allows the bots to work together controlling the density and harmony of the set.
nwdlbots are available for download at sundaydance.co.uk
(Ableton Live and Max for Live required).
