Use this Max For Live device to create granular pitch-downs and build-ups. You can set the envelope, envelope duration (from 1 to 10 seconds) and the stutter/granular rate, which is synchronised to Ableton Live tempo. 8 slots for user-defined presets are available.
Usage: drop StutDown onto any MIDI or audio Ableton Live track, make some sound and press Stuttrr button to start granular pitch-down or build-up. If the envelope goes from 0 to 1, the pitch will go up. If the envelope goes from 1 to 0 the pitch will go down. An envelope set to a horizontal line will produce a static pitch. Click the envelope window to create new points, shift-click to remove available points. Use Time dial change the envelope duration (from 1 to 10 seconds). The stutter rate buttons allows you to change the speed of the looping of the sound: the more vertical stripes - the faster is the granular effect. You can save up to 8 combinations of Stutter rate, Time Dial and Envelope in the Presets section. Shift-click the slot to save a preset, click to restore the preset.
StutDown was tested to work in Ableton Live 10/Max 8.0.3 (macOS Mojave/Windows 10). Note, please, Max 8 (or later) is required to run StutDown.
