Nylon – Strum Your MIDI

nylon 6 string


This device is a one-note-chord MIDI effect with a twist. It allows you to delay each note to emulate a strum. You can change the Speed, Curve, Velocity and randomize the strum for an authentic sound. You can even make a pattern of chords and trigger them with one note.

Very easy to use. Just place on a MIDI track followed by an instrument and start hitting notes.

Group Humanizer – Add Life to Your Tracks



From the creator:

“Two or more tracks can be “group humanized” so that their timing resembles musicians playing in the same room together. For example, a bass and a drum sequence will adapt to each others delays in a “humanized” way.”


This group of devices can add life to any electronic composition.


Curve – Logarithmic Curve for Everything in Ableton

This amazing device from our friends over at Skinnerbox lets you map a knob/fader to the MIDI IN knob. Then map Curve to any parameter in Ableton Live using the Map button to add a logarithmic/exponential curve to the control.

This device can also make live performance FX/volume control much smoother.


Binaural Jit – Position Your Sound in a 3d environment



This package of two devices allows you to place sounds in a 3d environment.

Place binaural_listener on any track to act as the main 3d space generator.

Then place binaural_voice on any track you want to add and position in the 3d space.
