Device Overview

Name/Version: ProbablyGEN mr 0.02
Author: synthesizerwriter  
Description: ProbablyGEN ('generator') is a three-channel 'timing' generator MIDI Effect that's the offspring of step sequencers and a/synchronicity. Each channel has a choice of free-running (async) or synchronous (divided from Live's transport), a probabilistic 'velocity' grid (with a special variation on the previous user interface specially for this type of application), length control per grid, direction controls (forwards, backwards, scanner), and completely straight-forward (gasp!) MIDI Note output selection.

If you've ever wanted to mess around with timings that are galaxies away from the 4:4 world, then this may be your ticket to a different universe...

(This is a MIDI Effect, so you will need to add a Drum Kit or Instrument after it in your track (and then maybe an Audio Effect...)


Alternatively, ProbablyGEN is a Kick, Snare, and Hi-Hat drum machine which lets you break rules - just follow this MIDI Effect with a drum kit to hear the MIDI Notes that it produces.

Each drum sequence can have a different number of steps. Each drum sequence can be running at a different tempo. Each drum sequence can be different on each repeat. Each drum sequence can run forwards, backwards, or even scan backwards and forwards in a loop. So the Kick could be a 16 step sequence, the Snare a 17 step sequence, and the Hi-Hat a 21 step sequence - and this is just the start of the possibilities.

ProbablyGEN's defaults are for the MIDI notes for the Kick, Snare and Hi-Hat drums in an Ableton drum kit, but you can also set them to any other MIDI notes, and so it can drive instruments too. So one note could be running at Lve's transport speed, one could be a third faster, and one could be a quarter of the speed (or many other ratios). This isn't an ordinary drum machine at all.

If it isn`t to much work for you: how about a random-function?
esp. for the sequencer?
Thanks for your work!!!
