Ableton has just released Connection Kit, a series of free Max for Live toolkits aimed at extending Live’s communication possibilities beyond sound.
Ableton's Connection Kit is a free toolkit for music makers who want to explore the possibilities for interaction between Live and the world around it. Practically, have you ever thought about using your webcam to control a synthesizer, or imagined creating a soundscape using weather data from the web or stock market fluctuations, or even turning musical elements into physical actions through motors and servos? This pack offers 11 Max for Live devices that let you connect, control and monitor Live using various interfaces and communication protocols, including Arduino, Leap Motion, LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3, OSC and littleBits.
The pack provides a toolkit that is ready to use, or – for those with Max for Live programming skills – to open up in Max and adapt to your own needs. If you’re a Live user with a tendency for tinkering, Connection Kit opens up a world new possibilities for music and sound creation with Live.
