Device Overview

Name/Version: Triptyque 1.0
Author: Zcpvtr  
Description: Triptyque is a Max for Live synthesiser aimed at creating special effects.

At its core lie 3 sinusoidal oscillators, a frequency modulation matrix and a randomization system.

It produces sounds somewhere between weird textures, like found in the electronic music from the 50s, and harsh noise mayhem.

This kind of patch is generally tedious to create using traditional synthesizers, or straight not possible (due to the fixed nature of the signal path), so I thought it would be cool to have it handy in a quick solution, as well as a good opportunity to learn more about Max/MSP.

More info and sound examples can be found here:


#How to operate:#

-Insert Triptyque on an instrument track
-Send any MIDI note (the MIDI pitch is ignored, but MIDI note on messages are used to trigger the envelope)
-Try out the randomisation features and feel like a mad scientist

I suggest to use another audio track to record the output in real time so that you can play around with resampled results!

Hi, I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but the device is not producing any sound for me.

@dandelion101, oh that is weird, sorry fo the obvious question but are you sending MIDI from live to the device ? It requires MIDI note on message to produce sounds.

Can you also try to set the Oscillator Amp and Master Volume manually to 1 and see if that changes anything ?

Can you try downloading it directly from my site?

I've tried opening it in Live 11.1.1 and 11.0.12 and they both worked

Hey, thanks! That solved it--I wasn't sending MIDI notes. It might be helpful for others to add that clarification with the device info.


Thank you for the feedback! Added info in the description :)


Really nice device.

Just thought I'd mention that I'm testing Live 11.2 beta at the moment, and there I find that with "auto" enabled, while the sounds do change, the various dials are not visually updated with each note.

a small jam / video demo of what this little buddy is capable of.


@verdurin, thanks for the feedback! It is expected that when you engage Auto mode, the knobs are greyed out, and not updated with each note.

Could not figure out a way to have them update and not be added to the Live Undo history, no matter how hard I tried with the various automation settings :)

@aoxomoxoa23 Thanks a lot! happy to see/hear this generator is used alongside other tools :)
