Isotonik Studios Releases Four Brilliantly Simple Sequencers For Ableton Live

Here's four different M4L sequencers from AlexKid that provide excellent features in brilliantly simple interfaces. One of these Ableton Live sequencers is even designed specifically for Hi-Hats!  

We've been a huge admirer of Alexkid's work since we first came across his Instant Haus MaxforLive Sequencer, in fact in our past days we even had a modification with a Chicago style hosted on the site courtesy of Audioutlaw.

As is the way in these things we hounded Alex over social media until he finally succumbed and agreed to become a member of the Isotonik Collective bringing with him this first set of four MaxforLive Sequencers that are as simple as they are brilliant!

Coin Locker Babies – Quasi-Euclidean Sequencer / Generative Sequencer for Ableton Max4Live/Ableton Live 

Coin Locker Babies

Erm… How to describe this thing? It’s primarily an ambient pattern generator partly based on an Euclidean (non-common bar divisions) engine. With this patch you can randomly generate odd polyrhythmic melodies easy to fine tune or start from scratch for extra-curious sequences whilst remaining musical. Though some Artists have been using it lately in a full Techno set up.

Obtain -in a matter of seconds- relaxing, melancholic or eerie loops and patterns by combining one or more instances of the same plug-in triggering melodies through one of the 18 exotic scales. Ideal to sequence sine-wave plucks, kalimbas, mallets or any type of ambient FM sounds…

Each sequence triggers a certain amount of notes (trig value) per bar, time quantised by the value of the division (div/val) resulting in strange and organic rhythms
