CV Tools Max for Live devices generate or receive Pitch, Control, Clock and Trigger CV 08/05/19
Ableton has announced CV Tools – a set of 10 creative Max for Live devices for Live 10 Suite that generate or receive Pitch, Control, Clock and Trigger CV. The Pack is currently in public beta testing.
The devices send, receive and modulate CV between modular or other CV-based gear and Ableton Live 10 using a compatible dc-coupled audio interface. Live can act as the tempo leader in this kind of hybrid setup or follow the modular system clock.
The Rotating Rhythm Generator and CV Utility devices also work with MIDI, adding modular-style workflow inside Live or to hardware setups that don’t use CV-based equipment.
CV Tools is being developed by Ableton in collaboration with Skinnerbox.
CV Tools Includes
CV Instrument: Allows control of modular gear with MIDI. Features flexible modulation and voicing options, as well as cent-accurate tuning for oscillators.
CV triggers: Allows musicians to sequence their modular drum modules from inside Live.
CV Utility: Allows musicians to control their modular gear with automation curves from Live. It is also possible to add, multiply and shift control signals together and process control voltages like audio.
CV Clock In: Allows control of Live's tempo from Eurorack modules.
CV Clock Out: Sends CV clock out to sync modular gear with Live.
CV In: Allows signals received from modular gear to modulate parameters in Live.
CV Shaper: A device for creating flexible CV shapes in Live that are then sent to a modular rig.
CV Envelope Follower: Uses audio signals inside Live to control modular gear.
CV LFO: Acts as an additional LFO source for modular systems.
Rotating Rhythm Generator: A modular-style beat and polyrhythm generator. This device also sends MIDI for use with Drum Racks or other external equipment with a MIDI input.
Pricing and Availability:
CV Tools will be free for all owners of Live 10 Suite and owners of Ableton Live 10 Standard and Max for Live.
CV Tools is currently available to try in beta. You can download the Pack from ableton.com/beta. Please note: you need to use the Ableton Live 10.1 beta to try CV Tools, and beta testing info is in English only.
