Strange Mod is a FREE max for live modulator (Donations possible). Strange Mod uses several Strange or Chaotic Attractors to produce a moving 3D coordinate. The coordinate may be mapped to various parameters in Live similar to an LFO. The difference is that chaotic attractors do not repeat the exact same progression, although each has its own structure. So you can get tons of endless variety while having similar flows for each attractor.
Music Mouse is an algorithmic musical composition software developed by Laurie Spiegel. It’s ported to web browsers by Tero Parviainen.
Spiegel’s best known and most widely used software, “Music Mouse – An Intelligent Instrument” (1986) is for Macintosh, Amiga and Atari computers. The “intelligent instrument” name refers to the program’s built-in knowledge of chord and scale convention and stylistic constraints. Automating these processes allows the user to focus on other aspects of the music in real time.
You can route the MIDI output (to your soundcard for instance).
HY-ESG is a free gate sequencer (aka a trance gate effect) with a twist. It uses a Euclidean sequencer instead of the standard step sequencer seen in most other trance gate plugins. You’ll probably find that HY-ESG is more fun and inspiring to use than your current favorite gate sequencer effect. Download at Bedroon Producers.
