With the release of Max 7, Cycling ‘74 introduced a number of new capabilities to its venerable visual programming language. We wanted to highlight some of the new features Max 7 offers, and provide Live users with easy access to some of Cycling ‘74’s most interesting devices. The result is Max 7 Pitch and Time Machines – a free Pack for all Max for Live users. Straight from the developers, these 18 devices offer exciting new creative potential in the realms of real-time intonation, pitch and time correction.
Max 7 Pitch and Time Machines provides an inspiring selection of new harmonizers, vocoders and re-tuning devices, as well as several different flavors of sample player. The Pack also offers unique effects based on real-time pitch analysis, a pair of devices for MIDI-sidechaining effects as well as an interesting riff on the Simpler sampler.
Discover Max 7
Not only a great free collection of standalone effects, Max 7 Pitch and Time Machines is also an ideal entry point for exploring all that is new in Max 7 itself – and there are quite a few refinements and improvements that both experienced patchers and curious Max newcomers will appreciate.
Besides a new and powerful file browser with tagging and search functions, Cycling ‘74 have completely reworked Max’s patching interface, which now includes toolbars and drag-and-drop of media files. There’s also a handy new snippet code management (a snippet is a piece of a patch you can save for later reuse) and the ability to load Max for Live devices into Max. And, along with the aforementioned new pitch and timestretch objects, Max 7 has tons of improvements to make better sounding and looking Max for Live devices.
