Altar of Wisdom – AutoGrid4 v1.8

Item Price: 15.00

AutoGrid4 Random Grid Generator [M4L Device]
AutoGrid4 is a Max 4 Live audio device, that creates random grid synths patterns from up to 4 incoming tracks, and mixes them with current track, ducking it if needed.
I’s a huge timesaver for building interesting FM/bubbles/squelshes/… patterns with different sounds, or sequencing arpeggios or basslines, making sure they don’t overlap whatsoever.
The device is used by major psytrance scene artists, such as Tristan or Jumpstreet.
AutoGrid offers the following parameters:

  • control or the four incoming signal levels and current track one.
  • occurrences weight control between the 4 sounds
  • time allocation control between 4 different length from 1/32th to 8 bars, including dotted and triplets
  • minimum and maximum length per note
  • mix amount between current track and stutter, and duck amount when stutter plays
  • stutter probability (to insert some random silences and thus lower density)
  • smooth parameter to avoid clicks/pops or on the opposite to glue the sounds together for fading them in or out
  • fully automatable parameters
  • 4 per channel sends so each grid element can be effected differently
  • Possibility to completely re-route each grid element to a different track, to record each sound separately for further tweaking or effecting
