Ableton release "Iota" Max For Live Device by Dillon Bastan

-
Ableton

Ableton has announced the release of Iota, a Max For Live Device, developed by Los Angeles musician, artist and programmer Dillon Bastan, that enables regions within a sample to be looped, layered, filtered and processed by drawing boxes in a spectrogram using a set of familiar graphical editing tools. Use it to deconstruct any sound as you like, rebuilding it as a composite of glitchy micro-loops, an ever-shifting soundscape or anything else you can dream up.

Three playback modes let you lock Iota to Live's transport for synced playback, unlock it to play back autonomously and endlessly – ideal for unattended sound installations – or control individual loops via Push or a MIDI keyboard. Parameter changes and loop box movements can be recorded and played back within Iota itself, too, making it easy to apply evolving timbral changes to each individual loop over time.

Beyond the natural intuitiveness of the 'loop boxing' paradigm, electronic musicians will find Iota's synthesis controls flexible and fast to work with, while sound designers will lose themselves in the limitless spectral possibilities it opens up. From evocative ambiences and sinuous textures to finely-sculpted FX and polyrhythmic soundbeds, Iota realises a unique and powerful new approach to granular synthesis and sound design that any Live user can easily get to grips with, no matter what their experience or ability level.

Pack specifics:

  • Granular synthesis made easy.
  • Innovative graphical loop editor.
  • Trigger loops from Push or any MIDI controller keyboard.
  • Record and playback parameter and loop range changes within Iota.
  • Turn any sample into a continuously evolving soundscape.

Pricing and availability

Iota is a Max for Live device which can be purchased directly on Ableton.com for EUR 29 / USD 39.
