all the links with github failed.
you can download it but can't be open.
(mac Os 10.6 / live 9 suite)

share or not to share ?

The link to the .zip is right there on the right - it downloads and works just fine... :-/

also; these two are just awesome. Thanks for the share, Trash80!

If you just want to download a specific file, click on the device and download RAW. You cannot right-click save with github.

I just installed github on my computer and used it to sync with the whole repro on the fly to a folder in my user library presets.

Your Betawave demo's on youtube sound great and I would love to work with this..
But strangely.. Betawave doesn't output any audio?the top left blue blinking dot indicates midi trigger, but no sound..:(

BlitterSynth works fine as do other drum synths. (9.1 64bit os x)

Had to update to latest m4l, it works now.

i can not get the presets to work. i put Betawave.amxd and the folder of presets in my Max Instruments folder and each preset i open it can not find Betawave.amxd and when i locate it it just opens as the default set up. am i doing something wrong?

figured it out just needed to be in a folder called Betawave

This device is amazing.. It totally brings me back to my early days of making music.. This is how I like to make drum hits.. by hand.

I.. I just really can't overstate this enough.. This is the one.. THE one.. I was trying to recreate that nice Electrobank sub kick.. and the other drum synths were failing.. well at least for time spent involved.. dropped this in and.. yes.. just.. yes.. This is how I need to dial in my kicks.. or hats.. toms.. whatever.. The interface is just.. instantly useable for people who know what they are trying to do..

Well, it would be a great one...but mine looks a bit different - unfortunately. I have Ableton 10.0.5. Do you think it could be fixed? Check it out:
