Just released is the “Probability Pack” by Sonic Faction a set of five innovative step sequencers and ideas generators that according to Sonic Faction allows you to add controlled randomization to your composition and performance process. Each of the 5 sequencers have a unique way of adding subtle or extreme randomization to patterns for unpredictable outcomes. You will definitely be able to use these sequencers to generate new ideas, create variations of existing patterns, set up unpredictable, ever-evolving musical textures or combine them all to create complete chaos.
Sounds like a lot of fun..
The sequencers were designed for hands-on use with Ableton Push, but the hardware is not necessary to use them. Probability Pack also comes with custom presets designed by Sonic Faction to show off the expressiveness of each device.
Probability Pack is included in Live 10 Suite.
Owners of Live 10 Suite or Live 10 Standard and Max for Live can download Probability Pack directly from the Packs section in the Live 10 browser by clicking the download icon, then clicking Install. They can also download it from the web by logging in to their account at Ableton.com.
Over 60 Ableton synth presets, Instrument Racks and settings specifically designed for the sequencers are also included in Probability Pack.
Probability Pack includes:
A monophonic step sequencer made for melodies. Set the probability of the event, pitch and octave of each step.
A polyphonic sequencer made for rhythms. Set the probability of the velocity, length, and event of each step.
An arpeggiator with a built-in chord generator. Set the probability for rate, note direction (style), length and octave
A polyphonic sequencer where each step can be divided into any number of smaller subdivisions for glitchy and chaotic results.
A neural network that strings together notes and generates melodies in unpredictable ways.
Slynk’s tutorial video below gives an overview of two of the sequencers (Step Divider and Probability Arp) along with a bunch of creative tips on how to use them.
