Two new devices are here!
We are so excited: after more than one year of development, we can finally inject some new fuel in your Live sets! And this is really something new: the devices we introduce today are part of a brand new series, the OOG tools!
“OOG” standing for Out Of Grid, this series includes a set of incredible Max For Live devices designed to write music and control instruments and effects in a brand new way.
OOGs show as familiar tools, basically they are step sequencers with different purposes, but they offer unique features that will let you easily create incredible music figures.
Being their engines audio-driven, OOG devices bring sound synthesis and processing technics (as sync, phase distortion, etc) to modulation and MIDI sequences manipulation, opening to new exciting perspectives. OOG series lets you play with time as you never did it before!
These are killer devices for users that want to go wild with time signature, complex time, micro articulations, IDM and experimental music. But they are also so versatile and easy to handle: they will become best partners for users also when looking for catchy bass lines, the perfect beat, and groovy modulations!
To escape from the grid is just an option, it depends on you.
Today we release the first two devices of this series:
MOOR, a phase-driven mono step sequencer
Twistor, a phase driven steps modulator
They both introduce a new approach and new features to their class, for example the bend parameter, exclusive relative duration for each step, snapshots, advanced random functions, and more.
Just check how cool is to change, thanks to bend, the movement of the playhead from linear, to exponential, to logarithmic, in this Instagram video, where Twistor modulates the cutoff of a filter:
…Or listen to the crazy groovy results you get with steps with different durations (MOOR playing Reaktor Razor synth in this video):
Both devices also offer a beautiful custom Push2 template that improves the control and even adds exclusive features.
For full details, check the product pages of MOOR and Twistor. These pages include also a link to downloadable manual.
This is a big project for us: more OOG devices will be released during 2018! Stay tuned ;)
