Amazing Noises and Maurizio Giri has released Spectrum Sampler, a Max for Live Device. It runs in Ableton Live, and it is compatible with Live 8 and 9 and Max 5 and 6.
Spectrum Sampler is a Max for Live device which samples and holds spectral components of the incoming signal. It can create inharmonic resonances, artifacts, dusty noises, drones, gliding sounds: a wide palette of amazing noises. Is compatible with both Mac and Windows (provided you have Ableton Live 8/9 and Max for Live installed on your computer).
Installation: Simply drag the .amxd file on your live browser, into the “Audio Effects/Max Audio Effect” folder.
The Spectrum Sampler is now part of the “Spectrum Effects” bundle available at Ableton.
Spectrum Effects bundle includes two radical spectral processing devices capable of a range of effects. Warp and mangle your audio into mayhem, or add subtle harmonic touches – you decide which. In the studio and at the gig, Spectrum Effects adds an instant dynamic catalyst to your Live set.
