Hi Maxime. Thank you for creating my absolute favorite maxforlive patch! Snake is an incredible sequencer and idea machine.

I have one feature suggestion that shouldn't be too difficult to implement should you agree it's a good idea.

In the 'Gates' section could pressing 'Reset' do the opposite of what it does now, which means it clears all gates and leave silence? That would be incredible for live performances! So what I mean is you can decide whether 'Reset' fills out all gates or removes all gates.

That's the simple way to do it. The sick way of doing it is if you could save a reset state. That means you've got you're notes, gates, velocities and custom parameters set the way you like it - then you can improvise by changing all of them, and then by hitting reset all you can go back to the saved state. Think of the crazy live performance possibilities that would open up.

Again, thank you for your amazing work.

Best, -Esben


First of all thank you for your great M4L devices! You make so many essential tools for me that have been great investments and create perfect workarounds for Ableton's shortcomings.

I have some suggestions regarding ClipGain which I use all the time.

1) GUI

I think the device would be even easier to use if the pop up window was twice as big or more. It's a little too small imo compared to the rest of the interface. And since it's what you're working on when you use the pop up window it would be great to have a bit more focus on it.

I would love if there was no colours in the interface, just transparent grey color. It's a small thing but often it's really ugly when the yellow and blue is mixed with the colours of the live set. Maybe just a light grey for volume and a slightly darker grey for the pitch section. It would make it look so much better I think.

Lastly, would it be possible to choose whether to see the warp modes when choosing 'All'? I never use it and it makes the GUI more cluttered.

2) USE

I don't know if it's possible but if the 'cent up' and 'cent down' could be mapped as well that would be spectacular! I would use that all the time when editing vocals and other recordings.

Also if it's possible to add a reset button for both gain and pitch I'd use that all the time too.

Lastly, and actually the biggest improvement imo would be if the scaling of 'volume up' and 'volume down' could be the same. Right now it's +1 db upwards (which is perfect) but something like an exponentially increasing value the further you lower the volume downwards. It's unintuitive that it doesn't act the same up and down and means I'm often not getting the results I'm looking for.

Hope these suggestions find you well, and again thank you for your work. It makes Ableton a better DAW!



Hi. Can I ask for your email too. I bought Clock but can't get it to work at all and have some questions.

Great man! I'll be looking forward to that! :)

Really good work dude! It's perfect for use on midi tracks. But if I want to map it to a parameter on an audio track it's not as fast and intuitive to work with cause you have to switch tracks constantly.

Have you thought about making it available as an .adv (audio effect) as well? Obviously the note in reset wouldn't work, but that could be scratched. I honestly don't program in Max myself, so I can't even tell if it is possible. But if it is - damn I would love to have this device as an adv too! :)

All the best from Denmark


Great work on this patch! I'm definitely going to use this in my live performance setup.

One thing I would love though is to be able to rename the parameters, so that the Push displays a name for each knob. Right now they say BtnVal01 etc. It would be amazing if one could rename it Cutoff or Reverb Time, etc. I have so many parameters going in my live set that it would make a huge difference.

An easy way to do it would be to add a knob per parameter, then group the patch in a Midi Effect Rack and use Macros to rename the different parameters. But there are no knobs in ParameterMasher that can be attached to Macros.

I am not a Max pro and can't make these changes. I would be super stoked if it was something you'd update in the future.

All the best,
