Molecular: Mutative arpeggiator Max for Live device for Ableton.
Organic Arpeggiator and Bubbling Rhythm Source
MOLECULAR is much more than a normal arpeggiator – it’s an ingenious hybrid between a molecular music box, a MIDI looper and an arpeggiator. It creates unique and vibrant patterns for harmonic instruments as well as for samplers or drums.
Versatile in application
Molecular generates a rhythm grid using a molecular algorithm. Based on this, two modes are available to determine the pitch – Note and Drums.
A polyphonic arpeggiator
In Note Mode, the pitch is taken directly from the held MIDI notes following a predefined sequence, just like any other arpeggiator. In addition to this, however, Molecular creates unusual varied rhythmic figures. Through layering it generates appealing polyphonic superimpositions, but can also be used for monophonic instruments.
A rhythm generator
In Drums Mode, the pitches are mapped to semitones for playing drum racks or samplers, thus opening up a further range of playful possibilities.
A looper too
In addition, storing, overlaying and looping note patterns also make Molecular a MIDI looper. This way, a persisting pattern is repeated until the corresponding layer is overwritten by a new layer generation. The density of the notes played is regulated by the number of activated layers. Obviously, new incoming MIDI notes will still change the pitches of all notes currently being put out.
New in version 1.1: Ghost notes
MOLECULAR generates additional ghost notes* for more rhythmic sophistication.
Take Ghostwriter to create ghost notes independently of Molecular (it’s FREE).
* Ghost notes in the musical sense, not like ghost notes as in FL Studio
