Device Overview

Name/Version: MM4L - Probability Gate 1.3
Author: mightym4l  
Description: Allow MIDI notes to pass or not based on chance.

Sometimes but not always! Probability keeps things interesting, and keeps the loop groovin'. [MM4L] Probability Gate is straight-up. Pop it on a track and adjust how often MIDI notes make it through. Great for drums, chords or melodies, where a missed note or hit here and there really adds that extra bit of variation.

Hi! The patch works but spams the undo history with live.button[1]. On Push 2, one also sees the parameter constantly turn on and off for each note let through.

Thank you! Device has been fixed and updated.

MM4L - Probability Gate 1.3

* Updated parameter visibility. live.button[1] is no longer visible as a mappable parameter or in the undo history.

useful tool. thanks!

One small feature request. # it would be great if you could send the rejected notes to another midi track

Hi tigranHam,

Thanks for the feedback! That's an interesting idea there, I'll keep it in mind for the future updates.

Take care,



I've been using this great device for quite some time, but on my new computer it seems to be crashing ableton. In the ableton log.txt file there is the message 'error: Message from Max: random: doesn't understand int'

thanks for any help
