AVOX Max for Live Beat Independent

AVOX Max for Live update version 1.1.6 released. Now you can control beat tempo independently from the tuning of the device. In AVOX Max for Live version 1.1.6 you can switch from automatic key detection to a manual using two available controls. You can also resynthesize the song tone on the fly while using Ableton Live BPM control to switch to a different tempo. The solution works on PC and Mac using Max 6 or Max 7 Max for Live. The main difference from the previous version is that AVOX Max for Live has a switchable scanner with automatic frequency detection algorithm.

The main idea of switchable communications as with AVOX Max for Live vocoder/resynthesizer is to enable a radio translation over the 20 Hz – 20 kHz passband music. AVOX Max for Live modeled to suit modern styles of electronic dance music. The spectrum of EDM songs is especially useful to detect ongoing radio translations feeding the track to AVOX Max for Live input and analyzing the spectrum with the use of CW Decoder as an example. This way you can review old translations, which were at the moment of the track first listening. For example, you have a legitimate file of the track, which you bought ten years ago. Now, with the use of the AVOX Max for Live you can revive the emotions you had at the moment of the first listenning analyzing and reading a text output of what inspired you in that music in a first place. Yes, every track has a radio translation over it and you can control and revive it using Compositor Software instruments.

However, this approach raises a term of the protection of such communications. It is very important to not to share the output of the translation to a 3d party. Such translations can contain loads of private information such as gathering points, events, and simply communications, you do not want to share with others. This way an automatic mode of AVOX Max for Live is as important as it helps to quite the frequency band the translation goes on, when 3d party tries to key it. Automatic scanner made by Compositor Software artificial intelligence proprietary algorithm can be found on all Compositor Software instruments. Buffer overrun protection is also included in a new version of AVOX Max for Live.

Compositor v3.0.1 for Windows x64 and Macintosh released

Compositor v3.0.1 is a major update, which fixes several bugs of Windows x64 version and first appearing in a Mac world of 3d installment of Compositor Software. Now you can run Compositor v3.0.1 natively on a Mac machine and use ReWire to sync to Ableton Live 9. Both versions are identical and give same results on PC and Mac systems.

Compositor v3.0.1 Hypervisor Radio Shack

With Compositor v3 Hypervisor Radio Shack, named after the platform for running virtual machines inside one matrix, you have modular structure so be sure to choose the feeders you need to suit your style of translations. You can choose FF8 signal-rate quantized module for electric field sounds with LFO structure reminding a sound of copter drone engines. Smooth exponential TC25 for LFO like modulated granular synthesis. AI-RT1024 quantized real-time generator aimed to fill a niche of Compositor Pro 2 style and sound. N9000 exponential structure feeder for Compositor Max for Live like sounds. All feeders have the auto mode for completely autonomous simulations and one-dial parameter operation of patterns and algorithm tuning. It was made on a purpose for faster pattern selection of feeding generators in a live ensemble situation.

RTC8k system

You can also use all four feeders in the link mode to main RTC8k radar setting. This way feeder pattern will always follow current RTC8k radar setting for the initiated translation. Now you also have the visual feedback for RTC8k server signalizations. I named them in simple chat statuses style to be in touch with current automatic tuning of an algorithm. You can view their statistics and graphic curve of statuses appearance by pressing setup button for RTC8k radar. The main idea is to understand the generators disturbance behavior. If you experience dropouts in playback and other artifacts, check visual display of RTC8k for statuses like Threat, Call, Arouse and Envy, which are measured on a signalization average level.

Overall, all these great features aid your interaction with an instrument and help to visualize audience reactions on a translation you run with Compositor v3 software.

Compositor v3 in the Radio Session

Here is a demo of Compositor v3 Long Endurance System in a session with professional VLF systems. THIS IS A REAL WORLD EXAMPLE! Ton of technics used to suspend Compositor translation in full-duplex two-way radio system.


First, I thought they are joking; to fight Compositor is a tough task. It almost impossible to shut down due to RTC8k radioprotection features. However, the Compositor v3 regeneration suffered from unauthorized dimmers on that channel. In a translation, you can hear how SASER produces a long-query translation to this sources and how they respond with Morse on that channel.

Second, two feeders were used on an auxiliary channel of SASER. Auxiliary channel available only in Compositor v3 Hypervisor Radio Shack and not in standalone or Max for Live version of SASER. In the recording, you can hear how AI-RT1024 and TC25 generators feed the regenerator to receive long and pure ether from different sources. Up to three sources on the same channel communicates to each other with different LFO and Morse signal translators. The central place belongs to the SASER, which can produce a diversity of patterns.

TC25 is a huge phase rotator, which can potentially brake the incoming signal regenerators. AI-RT1024 from the other side can initiate stable translation in SLF band. Channel protection mechanisms were used in a LINK session. It is hard to predict the chain of feeder tunings, because main tuning comes from RTC8k holographic radar. It rotates the tunings of the feeders in according to the threat source, searching for a better trajectory of signal translation.

Compositor v3 Hypervisor Radio Shack – Free-Float Generator

Today, Compositor Software announces the Compositor v3 Hypervisor Radio Shack based on free-float generator technology. Three years in the work and finally consists of six modules such as RTC8k, SASER, AI-RT1024, FF8, N9000, TC25 for VLF radio translations.

While it was a general task to make the audio-translation chain as long-as-possible Compositor Software found a solution to use SASER channel feeded by RTC8k chain feeder values. Now, instead of using an internal SASER scanner one can use the LINK function of Compositor v3 Hypervisor Radio Shack rack, which hardwires AI-RT1024, FF8, N9000, TC25 tuning to the current RTC8k radar scanner value, which produces ultra-stable and ultra-long results making it a long endurance system for SLF, ULF and VLF radio communications.

If you are proceeding to own the whole rack, you must obtain licenses for SASER, AI-RT1024, FF8, N9000 and TC25 separately from the Compositor Software Web Shop. In original package for Compositor v3 Hypervisor Radio Shack you get RTC8k license and rack with demo versions of all instruments. This way you can try them and decide what you need for original translations. These instruments are not only suitable to evoke constant radio ether they also suits for radio security. For example, FF8 generator is a quantized signal-rate generator, which quantizes radio translations and can potentially occupy the whole band with rattling patterns.

Besides the tuning, you have smart prediction system based on a block-chain with probability distribution density functions. This helps to establish the connection to transmitting source and magnify the signal using the waveguide normalizers. In Compositor v3 Hypervisor Radio Shack you got visual feedback displays for AI-RT1024, RTC8k and SASER instruments. They help to determine the direction signal source is coming from and to learn the signal by its phase values. In addition, AI-RT1024 display shows how many network dots receiving this signal in the current moment of time suitable for real-time tasks such as navigation.

Closed loop vs. Infinite loop

Here I would start a series of discussions on a topic of radio translation technics and their impact on the radio-electronic security. First, I would stress out the importance of the subject of comparing two modern technics to initiate radio communications, which are closed loop and infinite loop strategies.

Closed loop and infinite loop both have recreation in Compositor Software instruments such as MDL12 for infinite loop structure and RTC4k, RTC8k and RT-z8 for closed loop structure. The infinite loop stays for an infinite time translation and, as a Fourier series, implements the continuous time interval for non-harmonic analysis. Closed loop from the other hand may be a short type of translation like one bar Morse code message. Closed loop much more secure in its implementation. Infinite loop can be easily broken with radio-electronic security instruments. For example, one flyby of AVACS, navigating through the geographic parallel may completely shut down infinite loop radio translations on a territory of the whole country. The infinite loop can be broken partly or at whole, when both positive and negative frequencies does not work, and the only band, which remains in this situation, is a closed loop structure.

Hyperbolic function

Hyperbolic frequency bands

Using Compositor Pro v2 one can edit and reinstantiate the Ether on VLF band. First, you can apply Compositor Pro v2 to negative frequencies and then apply it to positive frequencies. Infinite loop communications are not secure and full-duplex modems must have a resynthesis module as Compositor Software instruments has. Not only resynthesis must happen to instantiate closed loop also the transport technics such as output channel detectors must be used. Both Compositor Pro v1 and v2 has closed loop structure on a C language level. This in fact gives much more stable results compared to later machines implemented on GenExpr C++ code. However proper implementation (such as RTC4k, RTC8k and RT-z8) of higher-level machines can be as stable as Pro versions. The most significant difference is that GenExpr machines are fully real-time compared to Pro versions, which have one bar bufferization.

Compositor Software Hypervisor Radio Shack

During the perfection and in attempt to create more stable technology Compositor Software arranged its modules in the Radio Shack structure. By means of virtual machines, the Ableton Live 9 or MaxMSP suits as a platform for hosting micro-kernel machines such as AI-RT1024, FF8, N9000 and TC25. These machines feeds SASER channel with an approximation curve inherited from an RTC8k chain. This way you can potentially receive completely stochastic translations out of VLF band.

You can order different devices for your production from Compositor Software Web Shop.

Exalted is Compositor Software endorser

avaxAfter three decades of growth as an artist, Ruslan Yusipov uses Exalted alias again for an album design for Compositor Software. Selections is a stochastic experiment of snapshots inside MaxMSP software. How snapshots influences our lives and how they stored on computer. Exalted puts it inside the two-channel AVOX decks inside Ableton Live 9 and mixes for reminiscent feeling of youth, aging and oldest. He remembers his life through connection to Compositor Max For Live device where he used an artist idea of the Time Machine from 1540 to 4000 years.

When you feed the AVOX device with Compositor Software feeders such as Compositor Pro 2 the interesting effect achieved. Someone sends a Morse code on the second deck such as a right channel and tries to sync to a feeder tempo. In addition, you can hear this at the right channel of Exalted – Selections album starting from the middle of the continuous mix, which was recorded using Compositor Software Max For Live recorder, which will not be released due to the amount of products functional pricelist has.

SASER Max for Live ver. 1.1.3 released

SASER SAS24P3L ver. 1.1.3 Max for Live
SASER SAS24P3L Max for Live ver. 1.1.3 released. Convenience of the new version of SASER SAS24P3L Max for Live device for Ableton Live 9 lies in having the Ether switch (earlier Damping). It allows turning the regenerative chain right after this switch activation. It also allows connecting to VLF Ether using the regenerative transmitter made after Armstrong regenerator. Steady synthesis allows SASER SAS24P3L ver. 1.1.3 Max for Live device conduct uninterruptable translations in VLF band, and to use this information as rhythmic loops for electronic music. 8K tables increased the synthesizer spectrum above the radio navigation system Alpha beacons signal, which were available in previous versions of SASER SAS24P3L. It allowed turning the carriers of other stations situated in this band. The effectiveness of the code raised on 10% by excluding resource-consuming tasks not affecting the quality of the sound.

QRG Q code received using Compositor Software Max for Live devices

After creation of SASER SAS24P3L VLF radio station, I received a number of signals. Today at 15:35 GMT+3 Moscow time at the 29.5 kHz frequency using the 13 modulator I received a signal and then sent it back to MDL12 Max for Live VLF modem. After I stopped the transport in Ableton Live 9, I received a feedback loop with Q code: QRG.

The recording reads a Morse code for RG, Q letter is not present in a repeating loop. The received feedback signal according to 1912 International Radiotelegraph Convention Regulations means: “What line do you belong to?”

About my equipment: SASER SAS24P3L software uses modulation frequency to center frequency relationship called multiplier, which is responsible for signals receiving frequency in VLF band starting from 17 kHz to 44.1 kHz. This instrument takes in account Doppler Effect, which happens because of delay time changes inside waveguide. Related to this, frequency of the signal is changed. 320 channels available using 16 types of 4096-node continuous-phase frequency-shift keying modulation without external antenna need. Partial components of the signal may be muted or signal components may be muted fully using wave shaping distortion modules.
