Demystifying Max for Live at Decibel 2012 Decibel 2012 hosts a unique lecture and demonstration of Abletons "Max for Live" by Clint Sand and video collaborator, Jennifer McClain. Clint is the creator and host of the largest free Max for Live device sharing platform at and is an Ableton sponsored artist (see Electronic Polymath: who performs under the name "synnack". The session will cover the basic use of Max for Live for beginners, as well as a demonstration of more advanced Max for Live integration with a custom VJ system written in Max/Jitter for more experienced users. Following the set, McClain and Sand will present a a full technical breakdown and discussion of how the audio/visual demonstration was made. Every device, every patch, exposed. More info: Come by and say Hi. 1:30pm. Square Stage. Broadway Performance Hall.

In preparing for this demo, I created a few new "utility devices" to demonstrate the Live API.

Ever wanted to detach the Ableton Live mixer and put it on a 2nd monitor while working in Arrangement view? well… check out Float Mixer which lets you do just that!
