ok, nice, sure, you can build anything with max, you probably even don’t know what kind of amazing things you’ll be able to do with it until you dive in.
but - you’ll have to learn max (which you should!). and it takes time.
now, someone probably thought about your idea before and made a device that is very similar to what you are looking for. all you have to do is search maxforlive.com for it..
the thing is - you can make awesome stuff with live’s devices + m4l devices without having to know max in depth - you just need to know which devices you have and what they can do!
some of my devices started as m4l devices, but then i found a way to make the same thing only with ableton devices - for example jazz me, mirror, speed limit and chance.
so, here’s an idea:
a knob that can be assigned to anything, and has the ability to work only in a specific range, AND, can go both up and down as you move the controller:
i was inspired to make this tutorial after i saw Tom Cosm’s new device called MultiStage Knob. it’s really awesome, check it out here!
but until someone will build a m4l device dedicated to this ;) let’s use the tools we already have:
HERE ARE THE STEPS
we need to ask ourselves which device can move something up and down with a turn of a knob - an Audio Effect Rack!
it can fade in and out an incoming audio, using Zones in the Chain section. cool.
the easiest way to get a constant signal is to use an Operator (default preset).
put it in before the Audio Effect Rack (1.)
add a simple MIDI Clip to this track and insert a long note (i’m using 1 bar loop).
now, which device can observe an audio signal and control parameters with that change?
an Envelope Follower (Max for Live Audio Effects)
simply add it after the two devices we already have:
the Operator generates sound, the Audio Effect Rack takes this signal and fades it in and out according to the Zone section, and the Envelope Follower observes those changes and uses them to control any parameter.
enjoy! and as always, you can also download it HERE :)
[update! - there is a device like this! sorry.. but hey, i hope this tutorial will inspire you to make more awesome devices;)]
i just realised that when i use THRESHOLD instead of PEAKS, latency is much lower! you should try it and tell me what you think :))
