In its own words, IRCAM operates “where artistic sensibilities meet scientific and technological innovation”, and from this frontier comes IRCAMAX 2, the second Pack of Max for Live devices produced by the renowned Parisian music research institute.
Regardless of whether you speak the language of advanced sound manipulation – not everyone can talk psychoacoustics – you’ll be impressed by this collection’s potential for creative exploration. Its tools are built with the expertise gained from decades of dedicated research and development, but are presented within accessible, tweakable Max devices.
Harmonizers, freezing effects, real time Audio-to-MIDI converters (among a host of other instruments and effects) invite you to separate, process and reinvent sounds in ways you wouldn’t have imagined possible. Hear some examples of IRCAMAX 2’s potential below:
