Device Overview

Name/Version: Automation Math 6
Author: zsteinkamp  
Description: This is a Max For Live device that lets you combine two automation signals using math. This allows you to have more complex modulation than what you can normally do in Ableton Live.

For example, two sine-wave LFOs running at different speeds whose values are added together will produce a complex wave. Another example is to use an LFO for vibrato, but manually control a second offset with a MIDI controller.

You can add, subtract, multiply, and divide two input signals. From there, you can invert, scale, and shift the resulting signal and map it to any other parameter.

It supports multiple mapping destinations, just like the stock LFO and Shaper devices.

I can use this it seems like it could be fun to morph it.

def a must have! thanks

Super nice device, thanks !

It looks like there's a bug when using several instances though: assigning a modulation source to one of them routes the modulation to all instances of the device

Thank you for the bug report, Spin! I really appreciate it. I've reproduced the error here and fixed it. I just pushed version 0.0.3 that fixes this bug.

I love this device! I have a request tho. Is it possible to add multiple automation destinations (found in lfo/envelope follow devices) so that we can map your device to multiple other parameters?


Thanks AYA. Ask and ye shall receive. I added multiple destinations in version 0.0.4 just now. Here's a download link:
