Magical Gate: an input-receptive Gate device for Ableton 9 + Max For Live

Magical Gate

— A gate with soul.

Magical Gate

“Magical Gate” is a gate effect with a magical touch — it moves according to the input signal. It doesn’t cut off sounds as linearly as a normal gate.

It’s organic. Kinda like it’s alive or something. It is more reactive and sensitive to the host material. It’s less cold and digital and robotic and linear than most gates.
…You could say it has a soul. Continue reading

Guitar Stringonator

This effect rack will simulate the extra resonations of the unplayed guitar strings when strumming a guitar. It adds one extra tone per string, according to standard EADGBE tuning, with the option to layer in some higher octaves to simulate a 12-string guitar, and the ability to shift the root tone up or down to simulate a re-tuned guitar.

Dalek Voice – free Dalek Vocal Effect Rack for Ableton 8+

Dalek Voice has just 3 macro knobs:

EXTERMINATE! – The main parameter; adds that classic Dalek rasp, from 0-100%wet.

Gate – Adds a bit of gating to make noisy source material less mushy.

Single or Flanked – Determines whether facing a single Dalek or if surrounded.

Dalek Voice sounds best on mid-to-high-pitched single-voiced vocal material with a clear contour. For extra fun, set the source clip’s warp mode to “texture” and play with the “grain size” and “flux” parameters (Nifty Tip: in Live 9 you can even automate these). Of course as always feel free to experiment with adding fx to the dalek chain, either in sequence or parallel, for your own special craziness.

Both versions are identical except for the version 9’s sound quality is slightly better due to the improved EQ Eight, and the gate has a touch of hysteresis.
