NES-Max-For-Live is a selection of NES-Spectrale and NES-Tools as Max for Live devices. Most function as audio signal processors, but two of them process the FFTs of sounds, and one functions as a granular production instrument.


With NES-Spectrale, I have adapted the patches of Jean-François Charles (2011) into a set of FFT processing tools using Cycling 74’s Max environment, with Jitter matrices storing and processing the FFT.


Inspired by the GRM Tools suite of audio processors, NES-Tools is a set of audio processing tools using cycling 74’s Max environment.

Composers Little Helper

The Composer’s Little Helper (CLH) is a Max patcher that makes use of the “Bach” and “Cage” libraries to manipulate and mix musical notation that has been saved in a “shelf” as separate segments.
