Max for Live

CV Tools

by Ableton

CV Tools is ten creative Max for Live devices that let you control and interact with your modular gear with Ableton Live.

Included in Live 11 Suite.

CV Tools is a Pack of ten devices for Live 10 Suite that generate and receive Pitch, Control, Clock and Trigger CV. Send and modulate CV to and from your modular setup or other CV-based gear and Ableton Live using a compatible dc-coupled audio interface. Use Live as the tempo leader or set it to follow your modular system clock.

Plus, even if you don’t own a modular setup, the Rotating Rhythm Generator and CV Utility devices add modular-style workflow inside Live or to your non-modular hardware setup.


CV Instrument

Control your modular with MIDI. This device features flexible modulation and voicing options, as well as cent-accurate tuning of your oscillators.
