Whitebox has released SPOTFIELD, a new free Max for Live instrument.
Designed for the musician who is either in a hurry, bored with tweaking parameters and/or extremely lazy. It takes the decision-making out of sound selection. There are no user-presets on the outside. Click on any of the 16 preset buttons to get a sound.
The heart of this instrument is Laverne, the subtractive synth by Pluggo linked into a reverb unit and Rye. Rye is part of the Pluggo Signature Series Granular Synthesizers. Rye offers a basic palette of controls for real-time granular synthesis, including a unique stereo effect that uses phase reversal.
