Device Overview

Name/Version: AutoPlay 2.0.2
Author: altarofwisdom  
Description: Tired of having to draw rhythmic sequences by hand, or feeling they always "look the same" ? Don't think more, as here comes AutoPlay, the randomly controlled step sequencer for infinite combinations of unexpected patterns !

Autoplay is a Max 4 Live MIDI device, that processes incoming (usually one long monophonic note) input, and automatically plays random sequences providing:

- time allocation control between: 1/32, 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 occurrences.

- global time multiplier to slow down the device up to 64x

- minimum and random length per note

- minimum and random velocity per note

- note probability (to insert some random silence and thus lower density)

- transposition probability (to output randomly pitched note)

- pitch transpose in octaves, uni or bidirectiona up to 5 octaves in each direction

- per note probability when transposing (starting from incoming note, range 1 to 12 get a chance between 0 and 100). Note chances can also be set up automatically to follow one scale among 65 with a simple menu !

Please note you need to have Max 4 Live to use this device (included with Ableton Live Suite, or available as an add-on for other Live versions)

Update 1.5.1:

- Added per note probability (1-12)

- Added number of octaves (0-5)

- Cleaned up automation params list and names

Update 1.5.2:

- Added automatic scaling through dropdown menu

Update 1.6.1:

- Added bidir octave transpose

- Added parameters modulation

Update 1.7:

- Added MIDI CC modulation on top of parameter modulations

Update 1.8:

- Changed length and velocity for min/max config, simpler

- Added two additional modulations and MIDI CC, added Attack and Release time per parameter/CC

Update 2.0:
- AutoPlay now has a memory, a given sequence can be frozen or reloaded with a simple seed number (provided the knobs have not been modified of course), and if saved as a preset the full sequence can be reloaded identical, and of course saved within the project !

Update 2.0.2:
- Reworked a tiny bit on the random engine to have it better looping
- Added swing option (even 16th get slightly delayed, configurable)
