Device Overview

Name/Version: AutoBeat by K-Devices 1.1
Author: kdevices  
Description: AutoBeat is a MIDI device for patterns generation based on probabilities.
With AutoBeat you create variable beats and fills with just a few clicks!

The device is based on eight 16 steps sequencers. For each step you can define the chance to trigger a MIDI note and its velocity. This creates patterns with continuous changes exactly where you want them! You can set, for example, a 4/4 kick, then add another kick hit on the third 8n at 50% chance. This triggers a new kick note just sometimes.

Each voice has exclusive tools for advanced editing: time resolution, three random functions, offset, loop length and more.

Beside the variations automatically generated on the main pattern, you can also create an alternative pattern via the fill area: then just click the fill button to launch another pattern on the fly.

Being a MIDI device, AutoBeat works with any instrument (not only drums). Furthermore, it has special features optimized for Ableton’s Drum Rack! If this device is used in the same track with a Drum Rack, AutoBeat starts communicating with it getting the drum pads name. Then, editing a drum pad in the Drum Rack, AutoBeat automatically selects that note pads displaying its settings: you will always see the pattern of the pad you are working on.

AutoBeat works great as continuous variations live instrument as well as a smart probabilities writing tool: the store feature allows you to instantly create MIDI clips based on the current pattern with just a click.

Last but not least: the AutoBeat pack contains also 3 Drum Racks!
