Foil 2 | Additive Synthesizer Device
Foil is a Max for Live additive synthesizer device.
Foil uses eight sine wave oscillators: Oscillator 1 is triggered by the ADSR envelope in the front, while Oscillator 8 is triggered by the ADSR envelope in the back. Meanwhile, Oscillator 2 ~ 7 in between follows an interpolated envelope value.
Individual oscillators can be tuned to the harmonic series, or detuned to build inharmonic timbre with relative ease. The pitch envelope helps create complex timbral gestures: from slowly detuning pads, metallic risers, or piercing percussion.
Foil provides unmatched sound design capabilities at your fingertips.

Cascade | Modular Multitap Delay
Cascade is a Max for Live modular multitap delay. It allows for user configured patching to create endless variety of delay and tone shaping.
The heart of multitap delays are the taps, or the subdivisions of delay time that can be individually set to create rhythmic delay patterns. Cascade allows user configured patching of these taps to create open ended delay patterns and various degrees of feedback.
The delay time of the individual taps can be modulated with two independent LFOs, introducing pitch variation into the signal chain.Each taps can be independently filtered, allowing for complex tonal shaping within the signal chain.
The Freeze button captures the incoming signal into a buffer, allowing for continuous feedback loops.
NOTICE: Cascade requires Lives Max to be at version 8.3.1 or higher. Please make sure Max is up to date (it can be updated for free for Live Users) in order for the device to work.

Whistle 2 | Banded Waveguide Synthesizer
Whistle is a physical modeling synthesizer with a banded waveguide as a resonator, disturbed with a granulated noise exciter source.Banded waveguide synthesis is a physical modeling synthesis method that can be used to model elastic solids, like a vibraphone or a marimba.
The synthesis method propagates exciter disturbances across tuned frequency bands. In whistle the amplitude and the partials of these frequency bands can be dialed in and automated.
The exciter of whistle uses a granular engine to process the noise source. This design creates a uniquely unpredictable texture, with any tonal elements in the exciter source interacting with the resonator to create random harmonic content.

Steps | Step Sequencing Modulator
Steps is a Max for Live step sequencer modulator device.
Inspired by Eurorack modules, Steps sequenced modulation signal can be mapped to any of Lives parameters.

Friction | Midi Device
Friction is a Max for Live MIDI effect that creates exponential and logarithmic rhythms. Inspired by Mr. Bills tutorial on the subject (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbsQ3w0hPcw
), the device simplifies an otherwise tedious process of creating the rhythmic sequence.
Choose either a logarithmic or exponential curve, and its duration using the duration dial. Duration follows the tempo of the Live set, and is counted in increment of one beat. The curve dial modifies the curvature of the slope. The min/max number boxes set the starting and ending length of the rhythmic sequence. The device on/off button can be used for automation, or mapped to a midi device for toggling.
Friction supports 8 voice polyphony, though all voices are locked to a single rhythmic sequence. Adding or releasing a note initializes the rhythmic sequence.
