Device Overview

Name/Version: TweekerSteps 1.0
Author: floszk  
Description: Draw envelope automations, grip them to Live's parameters and trigg them together or sequentialy with audio input or via midi mapping. Two versions include 4x and 8x envelopes. Each one can run from 0 ms to 30 minutes, allowing you to quickly create complex sound textures, slow progressive varations or live interactions with your Live Set.

# PRESETS
Shift-Click to save. Presets won't be saved when reloading, please use the Write/Load button to manage .maxpresets files.

# INPUT GAIN
Simple gain to adjust the input level.

# INPUT
Use slider to set the volume treshold in function of the input level. Range slider is not efficient here, but will be used in future for further possibilities, so just click once without sliding to set the treshold. When reached, leds are blinking.

# LAUNCH MODE
Free or Quantized. It sets the way hits will trigg the envelopes.

# PLAY MODE
Start/Stop | Start | Start/End
• Start/Stop : envelope progression will start at first hit, then stop, then re-start from last value, then stop again, etc...
• Start : envelope will restart from begining at each hit.
• Start/End : envelope will start at first hit, then next hits will be ignored until the envelope finishes. Once finished, the next hit will start it again.

# GENERAL HIT BUTTON
Hit the button and simulate a signal input. It's a way to use the device in manual mode without input. You can map it via MIDI.

# RANDOM DELAY
Delay hits with a random value between 0 and the selected value. From 0 ms to 30 seconds.

# GENERAL DURATION
Set the duration for all envelopes.
• 1st dial : from 10 to 990 ms.
• 2nd dial : from 0 to 60 seconds.
• 3rd dial : from 0 to 30 minutes.
Values are added together to set precise durations.

# RED/GRIP BUTTON
Click the red button to make Grips appear. Click on each to unlock. Once unlocked, click on Live's parameter to grip it (parameter's name must appear over the envelope). Then relock and proceed identically for each one.

# STEPS
Three modes :
• 1x4 : One envelope is played at each step. You can choose sequentially (env1, env2, then env3, until env4, then env1 again) or random among all. You can set the step number from 1 to 4. If 1 : only env1 will play. if 2 : env1 and env2 will be active, etc...
• 2x2 : Two envelopes played together at each step with 2 steps possible. Same functions than Mode 1x4.
• 4x1 : Four envelopes played together at each hit.

# ENVELOPE OPTIONS
Individual functions for each envelope :
• PLAY MODE : Start/Stop | Start | Start/End
• HIT BUTTON
• DURATIONS

# ENVELOPE GRAPH
Click on graph to draw the envelope. Upper right button allows you to use pre-drawn envelopes. Upper duration indicates the envelope duration. Upper right dial indicates the behaviour of the griped parameter during run.
