CONTROL PACK by NOISS COKO – Control Pack FREE UNTIL 29th APRIL
Control Pack consists of three MaxforLive Devices, CC Manager, CC Random and Random (The Audio Device Version of CC Random) this pack is designed to bring new level of control and randomisation over External Instruments and Ableton Live Parameters.
CC Manager is a convenient MIDI effect, able of transmitting up to eighteen MIDI Control Change messages, mainly used as a modulation source for external devices such as synthesizers, drum machines, samplers, and any other instrument that allows remote control through Control Change, Program Change or Pitch Bend messages.
Equally useful for both live and studio performance, this device offers an alternative interface for situations where multiple parameters from one or more instruments require simultaneous modulation; when these changes must be extremely precise; or if they are just too complex to be played by hand. For all these scenarios CC Manager presents a different solution, allowing the automation of each parameter using clips inside Live.
Besides the main uses described above, CC Manager works also as a bridge between Live and other programs, since MIDI Control Change messages could be sent outside Live in order to control another audio or video software. An essential part of the Control Pack!
CC Random is a simple but versatile MIDI effect that offers a new and different approach to randomness. It generates patterns from a limited group of values, used to produce real time modulations over external devices or any parameter inside Live. From a maximum of eight possible values to choose from, CC Random creates aleatory combinations depending on a set of parameters that add more or less variations to the sequence.
Do you know what a MIDI Control Change message is? This specific type of message is used by CC Random to remotely control parameters from other instruments and effects. Most of the time this is referred to external devices, but in some cases it could be applied over parameters from instruments inside Live. For every case it’s recommended to read the user manual from the specific device you are trying to control, in order to know what Control Change number is assigned to each single parameter.
The final device in the Control Pack is Random (the audio effect version of CC Random), a simple but versatile device that offers a new and different approach to randomness. It generates patterns from a limited group of values, used to produce real time modulations over any parameter inside Live. From a maximum of eight possible values to choose from, Random creates aleatory combinations depending on a set of parameters that add more or less variations to the sequence.
