Max for Live

Pitch Drop

Electronic music producer Mormo wanted a specific sound. He took matters into his own hands and used Max for Live to make it happen in a day.

The "record stop" sound - caused by a vinyl record slowing down after the turntable's motor is stopped - is a classic effect used by DJs and turntabilist. Glitch-hop producer Mormo took matters into his own hands and created the Pitch Drop device.

After familiarizing himself with Max for Live, Mormo worked for a single day on his first Max for Live creation. The result is the wonderfully simple Pitch Drop device, which takes incoming audio and slows it down at an adjustable rate.

Using Pitch Drop

Pitch Drop has only two controls:

  • the Drop Duration knob sets how long it takes for the pitch (and thus speed) to drop to zero after Drop Activate is pressed
  • the Drop Activate button enables the pitch drop effect. Pressing it again resumes normal audio
