A Dub Siren built in Max4Live inspired by the one found on Dub Scrolls. A Square wave controlled by 2 independent LFO’s (a rectified sine and a pulse) both with retriggered phase, and a chopper section. There are 20 MIDI CC accessible internal presets and new ones can be saved as a seperate instance or with your track. It was designed to be used Live so it is very simple, very user friendly and sounds just about right I think. For more information just open it up and have a look inside.

mo-seph has released an update to Simple Max for Live Granulator, a free granulator instrument for Max for Live.
It’s very much inspired by Robert Henke’s excellent granulator external. In particular, the extra audio unit for grabbing source material.
I’ve used the GMEM GMU external granulator as the basis, as a relatively modern and fast granulation external.
Changes in Simple Max for Live Granulator
- Fixed some trigger setting issues.
- Added grain size link.
- Fixed all instances starting in ON mode.
- Interface tweaks.
The Granulator is available as a free download (Grabber audio effect and GrainPlayer MIDI instrument). Requires Live 8.2.x, Max and Max for Live.

A mild-mannered logistics expert working for Ableton by day, Mark Egloff is also a hobby musician and remixer, who always preferred the direct control and tactile feel of hardware drum sequencers over their software equivalents. Working with Akai’s Shane Hazleton, Mark created a patch that can be used for hours of beat making without touching the keyboard or mouse.

I’m always looking to do things a little differently. It occurred to me that with a midi/parameter LFO I could automatically and rhythmically change the waveform parameter for each of operator’s operators
How To Build A MIDI Synth In 60 Seconds With Max For Live. Yes, it’s basic, monophonic, and limited to sin waves, but I challenge you to create a velocity sensitive synth in less than 1 minute with fewer max objects!
I’m going to add features in future tutorials, including polyphony, other waveforms, filters, envelopes and much more, so subscribe and tune in! Will include modulation for that dubstep/DNB wobble of course!
New! Ableton m4l tutorial: modulate any device parameter, dubstep style, with Max for Live!!

Use this quick max for live device to modulate any device parameter dubstep and dnb style! Add as many LFOs (low frequency oscillators) to Operator, or any other device as you like!
This is a short demo of the ag.granula.suite, which is a collection of Max/Msp patches for generalised granular sound processing written using FTM/Gabor libraries (developed at IRCAM) and encapsulated as Jamoma modules. The ag.presetmixpad module is used here to control preset interpolation of ag.granular.control. You can read more about the patches at audibledata.com/Software.html and download them at audibledata.com/Download.html
