In-depth

Max for Live Essentials features 29 Max for Live Devices, including 13 Instruments, 10 audio effects, and six MIDI effects. The Pack also includes eight Demo Live Sets featuring the Max for Live Drum Synths, Drum Racks and Audio and MIDI Effect Racks featuring the devices. Max for Live Essentials highlights include:

Convolution Reverb
A sample-based reverb suite with hundreds of impulse responses of real spaces and world class hardware such as the Bricasti M7. Features two reverb devices, Convolution Reverb and Convolution Reverb Pro for added controls, plus a utility for creating your own reverb spaces.

Drum Synths
13 custom-created synthesizers for drum and percussion sounds, with velocity control over just about every parameter. Don’t be afraid to try them for leads and basses too.

Buffer Shuffler 2.0
An improved version of Live 8’s Buffer Shuffler, with new effects to sequence (including stutter, gate, pitch, frequency shift, amp, and pan), plus a redesigned interface with improved layout and pattern storage. New, intelligent options for “dice” modes mean that you can precisely fine tune how sequences change over time.

MonoSequencer
Sequence a melody according to a flexible grid, with separate dedicated sequencers for note, velocity, octave, duration, and note repeats. Notes can be locked to key and scale, and each sequence comes with an intelligent randomizer. Sync your sequence with Live, or trigger it with MIDI input.

Control devices
New effects include LFO MIDI, Device Randomizer, MultiMap and XYPad, plus redesigned LFO, Envelope, and Envelope Follower. Take total control over your Live Sets and sounds.

Discover Max for Live Essentials for yourself, and see how these devices and Racks enhance your music-making experience.
