Research output: Non-textual formSoftware


Note: only compatible with Ableton Live 11.1 and above due to reliance on the get_all_notes_extended Live application programming interface (API) call.

A Max for Live device that alters the velocity, velocity deviation, timing, and probability of notes within a MIDI clip, thus affording programmed MIDI instrument a more "human" feel/sound. It is possible to lock/unlock the timing position of the first note(s) in a clip in order to avoid the note(s) being shifted back in time, thus causing them to start before the beginning of the clip.

As of version 12 (released 05/03/2024), much of the functionality of gtm.humaniser has been assimilated natively into Ableton Live, which is a potential indicator of the device's impact, but at the very least demonstrates the novelty of the research at the time of release, when Ableton Live was on version 11.
