Software is a big part of my creative work. On this page you can find many of the software systems I’ve created using Max. All of the software on this page is free to download and use (without needing to own a license of Max).
Cut Glove is a live sampling and performance instrument built using Max. It was programmed around the Xbox 360 controller and contains mappings based on video game mechanisms and metaphors. Additionally, the patch has MIDI learn functionality built in, so every parameter can be mapped to any MIDI controller.
karma~ is a looper/sampler external for Max. It is a dynamic length, varispeed looper with some complex features that are explained in detail in the accompanying help file.
C-C-Combine is a corpus-based audio mosiacing application based on concatenative synthesis. It is built specifically to use in real-time with incoming audio able to be remapped onto anything else. (Make your guitar sound like a swarm of bees…if you please).
It’s an 8-bit modulated delay/sampler based on the ciat-lonbarde Cocolase (which I own and love). It’s primarily built for using with a monome, but the matrix for controlling the patching is there once you go into edit mode.
The Chocolate Grinder is a software emulation of a skipping/glitchy CD player.
You can record (or drop a waveform) into a buffer and then define a playback/glitch window.
It uses authentic skip/glitch samples at every jump point along with weighted randomness of sample choice to emulate several makes/eras of CD players.
The seek/fastforward is also faithfully recreated.
