This week, Cycling '74 shares the fruits of a rainy afternoon’s worth of patching, shows you awesome patching tricks, and celebrates the diversity of Max for Live sequencing devices.
One of my favorite categories in the maxforlive.com database is the “sequencers” group, which features the idiosyncratic designs of people like me: people chasing after the perfect step sequencer or percussion grid editor.

This week, Cycling '74 releases a special new package with MPE support, takes filter design to the next level, and uses the Seaboard RISE as an effects controller.
The release of the RISE package gives us a chance to show the use of the Seaboard RISE in a different kind of context: as a video effects controller.
Working closely with ROLI, we at Cycling ’74 have released a huge content package focused on support for the Seaboard RISE as well as any other MIDI hardware that uses the MPE (Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression) standard.
This week, Cycling '74 reviews a beautiful-sounding reverb and takes a closer look at resources for getting into Max.
