Device Overview

Name/Version: Clip-a-me 1.0
Author: WalrusFlower  
Description: Clip-a-me is a free max4live designed and built by Aval.

It's a Soft Clip device with various clipping function to choose from.

It's ready to use, just choose a function and turn the "THS" dial down to start clipping your sound. Try to experiment with different function and listen how it will change the distortion from one to another: you’ll see your audio stream in the scope and the threshold clipping it; the two shapes bottom left are standard clipping (white) and soft clipping function in use (red).

IMPORTANT: The scope only works with Ableton 11

THS: Clipping threshold

Function box: Various type of clipping function

Digital: digital clipping with no soft clipping function

Tanh: hyperbolic tangent, adds a tube-like saturation

Sinusoid: sinusoidal clipping curve, adds a subtle saturation

Exponential: Exponential function based clipping function, creamy and clean

Cubic1: type 1 cubic clipping curve, very clean

Quadratic: quadratic clipping curve, even cleaner

Cubic2: type 2 cubic clipping curve, alternative to type 1


No video demo as it's free, just download and try it :)

the wrong file is uploaded at gumroad. bought clip-a-me but when it takes me to the download the file presented is 'LFO Lava"

issue is fixed. correct file is uploaded :)

very nice - but it has bug where the THS settings with multiple devices is set back to zero and mutes the chain output when reloading a project
