CONTROL ANYTHING, SHAPE ANYTHING
EXT 2 is a Max For Live audio effect designed to modulate anything you want in Ableton Live: any control in other devices, in Live’s UI, and in any third party plug-in.
EXT 2 is very easy to use: just click the “select” toggle, then click the parameter in your Ableton Live set to apply its step modulation. Target’s name is displayed in EXT 2′s UI, you can scale outcoming values to a specific range.
EXT 2 add a bunch of new features: clicking the “envelope” toggle you can activate the step envelope mode, using three dedicated step sequencer to define step’s length, shape and peak direction. These envelopes will be then applied to the main step sequencer amplitude, so each step could be exclusively shaped following your needs.
Ext 2 can swing too: increase the amount, and let your modulation get groovy! For more action: do not forget to test what time variation slider can do!
For more fun, you can obviously use several instances of EXT 2 in your live set, to access more parameters modulation easily!
EXT is developed using exclusively standard Max objects, to guarantee compatibility with latest Live and Max For Live versions.
