Patter is a realtime / freeform
generative music system
In beta for Ableton Live 9 / Max For Live
Patter generates MIDI beats and melodies based on a model of musical phrase plus a heavy dose of pseudo randomness.
It can hold down the beat or arpeggiate like crazy, but it really shines in complex and off-kilter rhythms.
It drives any synth or drum machine, and since it’s built in Max For Live, every control can be mapped to MIDI hardware.
