Ableton Live IRCAMAX 2

Ableton has released IRCAMAX 2, a new collection of Mac for Live instruments and devices that can be used to process, manipulate and reinvent sounds in very creative ways using their advanced physical modelling synthesis environment and other leading technologies.

The IRCAMAX 2 devices were developed by Jean Lochard at IRCAM and Manuel Poletti at Music Unit and include 11 powerful tools for advanced audio processing and sound design: 8 audio effects, 2 instruments and one MIDI effect.

Effects

IM-PsychHarmonizer: A vocal harmonizer that allows you to separate and manipulate monophonic vocal sounds.
