Max really is pretty crazy stuff. I couldn't find any Noch sampler, but you should probably stay away from the crazy stuff in that drumfoldr, its all a really big mess. my version is way simpler.

I'm totally against the whole "Open Folder" Dialog thing. it is such a painful way to do things. I think, that in order to get it to remember where it was, you have to have some crazy max scripting... I used to have some simple examples of scripting, but I've lost them. Ableton Expert used to have some good examples also, but I think they shutdown.

The best place to share code is on the cycling '74 forums. Its usually best to post small examples of the problem code instead of a big giant mess of stuff. I've researched all of the ways of dropping folders and I think I have the best way.

Thats pretty strange. I have it working on multiple Live 10 pc's with no problems. It even works in Live 9. Maybe its a Mac thing? Are there any hints in the Max Window?

Anybody else with issues?

What a crazy thing.

Strangely, it only required 3 or so objects including the [textedit] object. The code under the hood is in the upper right

Yo! The Many-Rampler now remembers its Folder when reloading the Live set. If the waveform isn't showing in the window, just jiggle the Sample# knob a little bit.

I guess my next goal should be to update this device and my Mini-terrain and Mini-stretcher with these enhancements.

Thank you, I'm glad you like it. Make sure to check out my Many Rample. It creates a RAM buffer for each file in the folder and has an auto randomize function. Because everything is in ram, you can switch between sounds very quickly, without waiting for the files to be loaded from disk.

I tried out the Drumfldr and tried to pick apart the path saving, but it was a pretty nasty ratsnest involving both coll and dict objects. I'm still working on a work around. I was hoping it would also allow you to drop folders from the Live Browser, but no luck. There has got to be an easier way, but I don't think so.

This one loads all of the samples into RAM

Check out my new Many-Sample :

You can drop folders of samples onto it.


I'm sure its possible, but everything is tricky in Max/Live. There are so many ways to do things correctly in Max, but there are a lot more ways to do things incorrectly. For example, with many of the methods I've tried, I usually run into problems with the sample list not being saved when you reload the live set or there can be problems with the associated envelopes for each sample and a whole host of unexpected details that occur with each method.

Nevertheless, I will try because it does sound useful, but don't hold your breath.

Awesome to the Max

Crazy stuff. I wish there was better documentation on this crazy thing. I've compiled a bunch of it, but ... With a lot of it, there aren't any units on the parameters. x/y phase isn't in any documentation anywhere.

Thank you! Let me know if there are any bugs or things that need improving or extra needed features.

Strange. I don't know anything about macs, you might have some files missing in your Live10 installation. I went ahead and uploaded a frozen version that should work better.

I haven't had any problems on 3 different machines, using live10.

But you do need to make sure that you are sending midi from notes B-1 through G2. I don't think it responds to midi outside of that range.

Also, yes you might need to hold the CTRL-key down while turning the knobs. I like having 2 decimal places of accuracy on the dials.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. The new, built in devices are great, but sometimes they do things that don't quite make sense.

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.

Hi,

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.
