Device Overview

Name/Version: Paradox 3.1.3
Author: TristanSutcliffe  
Description: Paradox is a tempo step sequencer and modulator. Use this device in conjunction with my other Max for Live devices. UPDATE: The programs can now play their effects when Ableton is paused or playing.

3.1.1 Important Update: This fixes all the communications bugs, but breaks compatibility with older versions of all the devices. Please download the latest version of the devices.

- Set and minimum bpm and a maximum bpm range, to modulate between. There are currently 10 channels to emit tempo from, allowing for 10 instances in the DAW.

- Other Max for Live programs can receive the tempo from any track in Live so a single instance can be used for the whole project.

- Sync Ableton Live's global transport tempo to Paradox's tempo.

- Modulate the LFO with the emitted tempo for strange patterns.

- Set to free mode and use automation to draw the tempo.

- Other devices to use with:
Sampler for Live 11:
Sampler for Live 10:
Step Sequencer:
MIDI Repeater:
MIDI Echo:
MIDI Slicer:
Envelope LFO:
AM Modulator:
Audio Delay:

Change Notes:
3.0.1 - Minor UI tweak.
3.1 - Re-worked LFO and step sequencer modes to continue output tempo when Ableton is not playing. They re-sync once Ableton Live starts playing so that they remain in time relative to Ableton's playhead position.
3.1.1 - Changed the communication pattern, moved away from udpsend/udpreceive.
3.1.2 - Fixed graphics frame rate issue.
3.1.3 - Added live.banks to modify settings with Ableton Push.

Those are all excellent devices Tristan, I love them.

Glad you're enjoying using them! :)

I re-worked the internal clocks on all these devices so that now they can play their effects when Ableton Live is not playing. They will all re-sync to the relative position vs Live's playhead on play now.
