Buy elastic~ [Maxmsp 4 and 5 only]
Incorporating the same algorhithm as software giants Cubase, Ableton Live, and Kontakt, elastic~ is a powerful and intuitive tool for looping, pitch-bending and time-stretching audio within MaxMSP. elastic~ works very much like the established groove~ object but with two independent controls: pitch and speed. The algorithm used is designed specifically for 'musical' material, allowing a natural sounding pitch shift up to an octave above and below the original pitch of your sample, whilst playing back at up to double or half speed. elastic~ is the easiest to use, highest quality, pitch-shifting / time stretching object available for MaxMSP.
See the elastic~ page for more details. For more extreme uses we recommend elasticx~ (see below).
Buy elasticx~ and elasticindex~ [Maxmsp 4 and 5 only]
Based on our popular elastic~ object, elasticx~ and elasticindex~ use our new algorithm custom built for Max allowing for increased efficiency and extreme control. elasticx~ works very much like the groove~ object, but with independent control over pitch and speed (with no limits). Whilst elasticindex~ works like the index~ object, with an extra input for pitch. See the elasticx~ or elasticindex~ page for more details.
What can I do with them?
With all the elastic objects it's easy to tempo match loops together (either to each other or a global tempo); create a sampler that doesn't change the speed of your sample as you change pitch; correct out of tune samples; create harmonizers; and just generally loop and bend and warp and stretch and...... words can be a bit rubbish sometimes so here are a couple of short demonstration videos.
FAQ: What is max MSP?
A graphical programming environment for real time audio and video manipulation. There are a library of simple objects available that allows the artist flexibility to create software exactly how they want it.

How do I get it?
Well it is only available from this site through Paypal (using any major card). Once paid for you will have access to download the external object along with some help files so you can use it straight away. We hope you have as much fun with it as we have! Happy processing!
