Anyone getting this to work? I click the freeze button and nothing happens.
Any clues? What am i doing wrong
I also want "lush textures out of everything" but don't get nothing!
All of monolakes patches are absolutely briliant and probably this one to. If it just want to give away some lush textures?
no sound here either..?
same here...
get it from monolake's website, that one does work! admin please update link!
and it is superb :D
kinda reminds me of KT granulator, only a bit simpler.
I emailed Henke to day to see if he will let me update this, and post many of his other devices if he does not have the time to do it himself. Stay tuned!
He approved. :-D Device updated.
This is, hands down, my favourite MaxForLive device. I cannot stress the awesomeness of the sounds you can get from it.

It's simple and hackable, and it can do anything from simple rhythmic deconstruction to these big, static schmears of sound.

Love it!
goood stuff! fairly cpu lite too...
Amazing effect! Thanks, getting awesome sounds from it.
very good example of programming...
Stunning device. Surreal soundscapes & drone guaranteed!
Hello. Can this be used in real time, on an input-enabled track, like the Electro Harmonix Freeze "sound retainer" pedal? I can't seem to get it to work in this way, but maybe I'm doing something wrong.
Hi! I´d love to shorten the buffer which is now 3 seconds, could someone point me in the right direction for this? I´m not max-savvy and can´t really understand the patch..

The reason for this is that I´d like to freeze the audio as close to realtime as possible. Now it´s kind of random if I get a chunk from right now, or 3 seconds ago.

Hope someone will take pity on this max-noob!
Great device. Thank's for sharing! If it will have smooth fade in of freeze signal it will be super great!
Super device! It will be great if the voice number will be mappable.
Un module super. Riche en fonctionnalités. Merci monolake 🙂
Thanks !
In this video explains its use. I like this
Thx for this!
I tried downloading but once extracted it's only 1kb and doesn't show up in Ableton with the rest of my M4L devices. I also noticed the folder it comes in says MACOSX, I am using PC, could that be the issue? Excuse all my noob questions :)
