Tested it, it's opening the synplant by itself to know the position of the UI. I have a cool mouse automation object that could replace the java part of xanadu's approach, but it is still not something you would use while producing (you can't use the mouse while automation is running). You could use a dedicated computer for synplant and then use it like an outboard gear. (don't think anyone would do nowadays).

cheers

Hi, cool device. To bring some movement into the synplant sound while it's playing. I think xanadu tried something to automate the Genes. Have to try that device again. I think he did a dirty hack with mouse movement automation. used your device here together with random seeds: https://youtu.be/UrDDUtvpbBg

Hi, of course, you still have the permission.
cheers

ok, i'm gonna add an audio device version but remember, the target device doesn't need to be on the same track as the randomizer.

device now ready for max 7...

thanks for the hint. that is easy to update.

wtf, don't take this last comment to serious. Sometimes it's frustration the other day it's 100% motivation again. ;) And it's not even true, you can include the current sample of a m4l device into the "Collect all and save"-process with live.drop (as I found out meanwhile).

IT'S AN UPDATE !! IT'S AN UPDATE !!
v 0.6
The device now offers a little browser window to select any subfolder to be included. This is a huge step forward in terms of usability. Select a group of subfolders from totally different locations to form the basis for the random selection. Furthermore countless improvements under the hood. Please check out the changelog.
Max 7 is required.

That would all be no problem if ableton provides a way to assign samples to their devices without using drag n' drop or hotswap. That would open up a lot of possibillities for experimental sample management.
Even the way i choose here (to build a m4l device like Simpler) was full of big stones. Not even a sample in a buffer can be saved with the Liveset. It feels like they don't want u to build complete integrated intruments other than synthies with m4l. It's like give them something to play but make sure nobody can build better instruments (samplers) than the provided factory devices.
Sorry, some frustration after years of hitting the wall.

would be cool to just have a slider instead of 2 dials.

Nice one! This is the true panning. And a good psychoacoustics lesson.
You will probably not hear it in a club if your not standing in the middle of the dancefloor, doing your disco moves.

Hi, maybe you missunderstood. You need to drop the folder in Live's browser on the bottom-left corner, not on the device. this is why the device's places have a refresh button.
But actually you pointed out an important thing: it should be possible to simply drop folders to the device. At leats from lives browser because a folder from there is definitely already indexed in the database. I'm trying to implement that in an upcoming update.
Now follow the link and buy it ;)
No seriously, the longer you (extreme) test the demo and it's stable, the lower the chance that you'll be disappointed with the full version.

Hey, drop a folder to Live's Places and it will be available for selection in the device..

And if i remember correctly, ableton has the same "try witout saving" option.
that means anyone could try a m4l device at home without paying anything.
he just won't be able to save Max-patches or Live-projects.

@M4L I think you got it wrong. afaik max 7 is free for everyone to install and use. Only saving will be disabled until you pay.

Nice. I'm still not completely happy with it. Expect another update in near future.

UPDATED!
Of course, use it wherever you want. I have been thinking about a device that analyses what the user is doing in Live and starts to give productivity tips but i'm a bit afraid of the complexity of such a device. maybe someday ;)

I tested it on windows and mac osx but if you still notice abnormalities don't hesitate to contact me.


regards, O.

I'm doing an overhaul of the device.
And it will be tested on mac osx. I think tomorrow you can download. Thanks for reporting.

Windows or Mac? The device is build to save any changed interval or message as default and should use that the next time it is loaded. that seems not to be working for you.

i'll take a look.

i found a way to get a random sample list into Live's browser ready to be dragged. unfortunately again a pc-only device. upload in the next days..

The resolution problem is solved i think. The parameter reordering thing will take some time. I'll probably upload the new version by the end of the week.
O.

Ableton just needs to add a way to assign files to drumrack-pads to the api. I like your idea. But I want a random or intelligent sample selection without depending on a device that is used for playback.

hey, thank you for your comments.
@specialkay, yes, often a lower resolution would be helpful. the thing is, it also needs to be possible to make fine tweaks. i will make some tests. How many steps is the push encoder creating per rotation? Does it also create bigger steps on faster turning?
Custom device parameter orders is another good idea.

cool, but seems not to map to the crossfader..

as you deal with realtime input, ahead notes are not possible. sorry for bothering. i missed the purpose of your device

jep, you should say "random delay" because all your time domain parameters are adding time. jitter for me is a two direction thing and would create early and late notes. best regards O.

i also spent some time thinking about humanisation. your device is missing a time jitter on notes which will be present in a human groove. but still good idea.

i'm currently working on a poly note repeat that will allow seperate settings for every note. it also offers humanizing groove features. i upload it in a bunch of days. would like to have your feedback on it. O.

it is a hacky thing. i once tryed a similar approach to control Live's Sampler startpoint dial remotely(which is not midimapable). i like the synplant vst very much since years and it's a shame it is not fully automatable. do you know the hack to make "randomize seed" and "clone the selected branch" also midi-assignable? if not contact me, i'll send it to you. contactolsen at gmail.. seem that we also share the love for the launchpad, do you patch on mac or win?
