Isotonik Studios has introduced Factorsynth – a macOS Max For Live device that uses machine learning to decompose sounds into elements. Once these elements you can modify and remix.
Factorsynth works on audio clips from your Live set that you have selected and loaded into Factorsynth. Once an audio clip has been selected and loaded into Factorsynth, it can then be decomposed into elements, using a technique called matrix factorization.
Factorization usually takes a few seconds, and can be performed while the Live set is playing. Once the factorization is ready, you can modify your sound in real time by modifying or recombining the extracted elements.
You can optionally load a second sound, for “cross-synthesis” with the first sound.
Pricing and Availability
Factorsynth is available for macOS, and a minimum of Ableton Live 9.7 & Max for Live 7, for US $57.38.
