Isotonik Studios has released Factorsynth 2, a major update to the AI-powered Max For Live device for analyzing and resynthesizing audio.
Factorsynth is a Max For Live device that uses a data analysis algorithm called matrix factorization to decompose any audio clip into a set of temporal and spectral elements.
By rearranging and modifying these components, you can create powerful transformations in your audio clips, such as removing notes or motifs, creating new ones, randomizing melodies or timbres, changing rhythmic patterns, remixing loops in real time, applying effects selectively only to certain elements of the sound, creating complex sound textures and more.
Factorsynth 2 offers a simplified workflow and numerous new features. It is now possible to individually pan the components, which means you can do things like upmixing a mono clip to stereo. Another powerful new feature is quantized shifting of the components, which lets you change the rhythmic structure of riffs and drum loops.
Pricing and Availability
Factorsynth 2 is available now for $61.66 USD.

There’s a cool plugin from DDMF called Directional EQ that let’s you isolate various locations in the panosphere. I wonder if this does something along those lines. It looks for related activity in the spectrum-to-time graph and isolates that. It would be pretty effective.
I hope it’s eventually released for VST so I don’t have to buy Ableton with M4L. Very cool piece of software!
