Thank you, I'm glad you like it. It is a bit tricky to describe. I think of the Nodes as "Complexity". I like medium complexity, with the nodes around 9-14.

Thank you, I'm glad you like them. Let me know if you have any suggestions for them.

Also, keep in mind that the knobs take on the values of whatever they are mapped to. If you map the envelope to something that goes between 0 and 100, then the Minimum and Range knobs will take on those values. The parameters on many Ableton devices only go from 0.0 to 1.0.

Its very strange that you can't see the labels on the knobs. They are standard live.dial devices. I can see them on three different computers using various versions of Live/Max.

Hi, Sorry it took so long to get back to you, I've been moving out of state.

The knobs are pretty fine grained, try using the CTRL key when turning them. They are used to control the Minimum and Range/Max of the envelope.

Hi, I've tried it on two different computers. It is a bit too Hi res, but it works. Try using the CTRL button when you turn it.

Hi Folks, my apologies to the first 90 or so people to get this. I forgot to freeze it, so it was missing a crucial piece. Its all good now.

Oh My God!. I'm so sorry, I forgot to freeze it. It should be fine now.

Thank you. Glad you like them

No worries. Actually, I'm considering an Instrument version of it that can use two samples.


It only makes sound when both sources, Input and Internal, are audible. In particular, it needs to be put after something that is making sound like an instrument or an audio clip.

If you are using the Internal Sample as the second sound source, you need to make sure a sample is actually loaded up and the Pitch, Speed and Length are non-zero (I've done this so many times).

On the FM synth, I like to make sure the Index is around 60 or greater. With some Input material, lower values can quickly put things outside of the audible frequency spectrum.

I've tried it on all three of my PC's with no problems (one of them is 32-bit Max 6.1.7). Maybe you are using an older version of Max? Does the Max Window provide any details (In Live, right click on the Convolvor title bar -> "open max window")?

Anybody else with issues?

Hah!. Indeed. Not to mention the audience. If you really want to fuck everyone up, throw in my Time Signature Sequencer as well.

Cool, it would be great if you could post it. I've been thinking of ways that might make it more useful (without needing to do the crazy configuration setup) but I would want one without the Java.

Let me know

Awesome video. I'm glad you like it. I tried that Xanadu device many times long ago (and more recently) but could never get it to work. I looked under the hood and it was very confusing. It uses the vst~ device and then tries to load the Synplant as a vst into the max patch. But even then, I couldn't see how the gene values were transmitted to the Synplant. Also, it uses Java, yuck.

Thank you, I'm glad you like it.

Awesome, glad to hear it.

Thats pretty strange. I've tried it on all three of my PC's with no problems. It only uses standard objects, including pcontrol. Maybe you are using an older version of Max? Does the Max Window provide any details (In Live, right click on the title bar-> "open max window")? Do you have the same issue with my Sequenced Filter?

Anybody else with issues?

Hi, Can you be more specific? Most everything does what it says on the tin.

Thank You!!!

Thank you!!! I'm glad you like it. I've wanted something like this for years but have only recently acquired the wherewithal to figure something out. Back in 2008, they promised to make the dna automatable, but it hasn't happened. I gave up hope years ago.
