Device Overview

Name/Version: coulsounds - Sync Tool and Synchronisation Pack 1.0
Author: coulis  
Description: The Sync Tool and Synchronisation Pack are devices for syncing the predelay of reverbs with the tempo of your track. The decay time can also be synchronised and will adapt with the predelay.
There are also alternative controls for the Ableton delays, including a unique sync for the Grain Delay 'Spray' parameter. 3rd party effects with special attributes such as the Waves R-Verb negative predelay or Altiverb's ER and Tail parameters also have sync.

This pack contains a wide variety of synchronisation devices for Ableton Live with Max. They allow you to sync almost any 3rd party reverb effect with a predelay parameter that can be automated in Ableton Live.

Special devices have been created that can synchronise the predelay on the Ableton Live Reverb and Max Convolution Reverbs.

The devices are synced to the global tempo, so if you change the tempo of your project the times will be adapted in real-time.

There are 37 individual devices included in the Synchronisation Pack for controlling specific effects. The new Sync Tool consolidates all of these devices into a single unit.

Sync Tool v.1.0
Sync Device Packs v.1.1 and v2.0

Hi coulis
I just bought your creation
I will try it this night
It seems wonderful and i see that you have invested many hours in the process
Thanks to your effort
Do you have any video tutorial about the pack?
If i find any doubt i will inform you to help me

Thanks Mario, I really appreciate your kind words and yes, they did take quite a long time!

I'm working on video tutorials at the moment, hopefully I will have a link up this weekend.

Any questions just ask, happy to help :)

I just bought this despite my unwillingness to pay for it, but it looked interesting and I felt like the work that went into it may have been worth a whole $4.

I'm glad I spent the big bucks already after just one session in Ableton! It's fantastic having the new Convolution Reverbs pulsing in sync, I have had more fun playing with these devices today than I have playing with half of the iPad apps I've downloaded recently! It really is useful because it lets you really push the reverbs and let them go crazy in ways you wouldn't normally do, but you've got them synced so the chaos never gets too out of hand if you're still trying to create songs and not just noise. Though I fully endorse noise as well.

Well worth it, nice work Mr. Coul, enjoy a pint on me in thanks for your fine devices :)

Hi Coulis
Excuse me
I had not time to test but now i am testing it and i don,t know how works it?
Did you do the video tutorials?
I have a vocal track and i insert first your coul.Simple Delay Sync,in the same chain,continued i insert Ableton Simple Delay.
The song tempo is in 120Bpm
In your coul.Simple Delay Sync i press the both left and right triplet botton,then appear written 333.333344 ms
Then in The Ableton,s Simple Delay i change the yellow botton Sync to orange Time botton and i write 333.333 in the number ms field and the maximum allowed is 300 ms,what am i doing wrong?
For that is the map pink fields of your coul.Simple Delay Sync?
And the close X?

not able to download. link is broken... :(

The link is and look further down the page. I'm not sure why it hasn't been updated here.

The link above is broken too.

Here is the working page:


His main website still works. Just click 'Software' at the top and scroll down a bit:

Plug is not saving with ableton.
So after re loading the project all synced plugs have lost their values.
No response.
Complete waste of money.
