Lambda II v1.4 Real-Time Granular Effect MaxForLive ALP
Ableton MaxForLive Device ALP | 4.69 MB
Lambda II is a Max for Live device for real-time granular effect. It allows you to granulate the incoming audio signal in real-time or to granulate a frozen portion of it through a 8-voice polyphony. The incoming audio can be viewed through an easy sonogram.
Lambda II can also generate grains in sync with the Ableton Live tempo working as a step sequencer. The grains can be generated via MIDI input.
Pitch and amplitude parameters can be individually applied to each voice.
The parameters are:
Freeze | freeze audio input to work on the frozen buffer audio portion. If it is Off, Lambda processes the audio input in real-time (you can store your frozen buffer within the project);
Step | step sequencer mode in sync with Ableton Live tempo
Buffer size | length in seconds of the audio portion on which Lambda works (from 1s to 60s)
Gain | gain of input audio signal
Recycle (pre or post) | recycle/overdub the dry (not granulated) or wet (granulated) audio signal on the input stream
Position | position to granulate with randomness
Reverse | reversed grains percentage
Filter | each voice filters the audio stream into an individually granulated band
Duration | grain duration (from 0.1 ms to 5 s) with randomness
Density | grain density in percentage with randomness
Envelope | general envelope function with attack and shape parameter
Spray | stereo spatialization
Dry/Wet | dry/wet ratio
Volume | output volume.
Transpose | transpose all voices (from -24 st to +24 st)
Tune | fine-tuning in cents
Detune | detune all voices
Glide | smooth factor for Detune parameter
Delay | apply a delay on each voice. If random delays are used, each generated grain will have a different delay value
Slide | interpolation time between one delay value and the next for each grain
Feedback | apply feedback on the delay network with randomness.
MIDI | grains can be played via MIDI input with velocity sensitivity.
