Defective Records Software has announced the release of Major Malfunction v2.0, a new version of the Mac OS X realtime audio plugin specifically created for use in Ableton Live. It allows you to easily mangle, glitch, slice and dice, and otherwise FSU in your audio stream, in either subtle or extreme ways. You use it as either a VST or an AU plugin in Live.
Major Malfunction syncs itself to the Ableton Live tempo automatically, and processes the incoming audio in a number of different user-specified ways, or even randomly if the user prefers.
New Features in version 2.0:
- New Multi Mode, allows for multiple effects per step.
- In Multi Mode, allows for serial or parallel routing.
- In serial Multi Mode, can rearrange effects in any order.
- Dramatic efficiency improvements compared with previous versions.
- Small bug fixes.
Major Malfunction v2.0 costs $25 and is available now; it is a free update to registered v1.0 and v1.5 users. A free demo is also available.
