Device Details


Name | Version: Tombola Sequencer 1.0
Author: joelpowell
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: Introducing Tombola sequencer for Ableton.

Perfect for creating semi-random sequences.

Play in midi to drop notes into the tombola - up to 64.

Includes all parameters from the OP-1:

- Speed
- Mass (bounciness)
- Gravity
- Shape

All can be automated in Ableton.

Designed to work well in conjunction with Ableton's midi effects such as pitch and velocity for altering the output of the device.

Things to bear in mind:

- Make sure you use a low audio buffer size in Ableton preferences to ensure a high frame rate
- Balls can occasionally escape the tombola when moving at extreme speeds (this appears to be a limitation of jit.phys but feel free to comment a solution if you have one).

Many thanks to Federico Foderaro (Amazing Max Stuff), Rob Ramirez and Dillon Bastan for their help!

A lot of work has gone into this so I hope you enjoy it!

super cool stuff ! Thanks for sharing
Never knew I needed this but heck yeah! Thanks for making this dude :)
Excellent idea. I am thrilled we get this new device in our toolbox, thanks to you, Joel.
Two great devices. Stepper and this! Getting it.
You did such an amazing job!

Idk if this is too much to ask, but a resizable/floating popout window (so you can have the device on screen while doing other stuff, or even for just looking at the graphic!) would be such an amazing addition. do you think that is possible?

Assolutamente geniale. Genius! Thanks!
It's a lot of fun to use and looks beautiful. Thanks for releasing it for free!
Such a great device, and very well designed! Thanks for sharing this.
What folder do i need to put this in to use it in ableton? sorry im new
Super fun! Thank you.
John Selway reviewed this in a 343 Labs video.
Just tried to use in in Luve 10 but unfortunately it caused Live to crash; issue was consistently repeatable. Boo-urns.
Would love to use Tombola, so yet another reason for me to upgrade to Live 11
Is there a way to control the number of notes (balls)? Great device btw.
Thank you!
I have a question about this, I was using it and lost all the balls and I cannot get them back. I tried Deleting Tombola and redownloading it and it is still missing the balls. Anyone know how to get them back? I do like it and really want to use it again.
