Device Overview

Name/Version: Drum De-rigid-iser 1.1
Author: outsiderspeaks  
Description: Updated to v1.1! Redesigned timing and velocity processing, now works with Toontrack Superior Drummer as intended.

Not just for drums! Simple and effective MIDI "humaniser".

Drum De-rigid-iser is a Max for Live MIDI effect that's designed to liven up stiff-sounding drum patterns and melodies. It delays MIDI notes by a random amount within a range you set (up to one beat/quarter note, synchronised with your project tempo), letting you go from subtle looseness all the way to "oh dear god the drummer has fallen down the stairs and somehow taken their whole kit with them". Other humanise functions often make notes either early or late, but this can sound sloppy (in a bad way) and unnatural, so Drum De-rigid-iser only makes them late instead.

Drum De-rigid-iser also features a MIDI velocity randomiser so that you can broaden the dynamic range of your MIDI clips with a single control.

Also, this device pairs really well with Ableton's "Grooves" function! Give your track some shuffle and swing with a Groove to change up your rhythmic feel, then use Drum De-rigid-iser to nudge everything off that grid and liven things up even more!

A straightforward tool to energise and loosen up robotic-sounding MIDI tracks!
