Device Overview

Name/Version: Fractal Filters 1.0
Author: ndivuyo  
Description: FREE FREE FREE device. Fractal Filters uses Julia Set fractals to create a set of amplitudes for a 50 band filterbank. It does so by taking a "slice" of the 2D image (either a single row or column) and using that list of values as the filterbank amplitudes. Noise or input audio is sent through the filterbank. The Q of the filters can go really high as to create tones if desired, and there are scale and tuning options for the filterbank. You can also drop Scala files (.scl) on the Scales menu to use custom tunings! THIS DEVICE IS INTENDED TO BE USED WITH MODULATORS. Otherwise, it will have no dynamics. So map away and have fun!

NOTE: Although it's free, if you purchase it then 100% of the money will be donated to various causes, reach out to me if you want to know where the money is going now!

*Update* - You can now drop scala files (.scl) to use your own tunings! Just drop them on the "Scale" UI object.

TO INSTALL: drop the unzipped folder into this folder: ableton/user library/presets/audio effects/max audio effects

NOTE: There is currently a bug in Live with hot-swapping presets that have modulators, such as the LFO device. So to make sure the presets are loaded correctly, always hot-swap them twice! Although Ableton may have fixed this issue by the time you get this device :)
