Max For Live MIDI effect designed to generate and manipulate mono MIDI sequences with innovative features.

A Mono Oracle

MOOR is a unique monophonic step sequencer that will let you create sequences that you could never get with other tools of its kind. It creates, then twist and manipulates your sequences and synth lines giving results that go beyond your imagination. Unique Features, For Real!

Any Time Resolution

Exclusive Step Duration

Set exclusive duration for each step: 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200, 400% of the global time resolution. This opens to crazy new possibilities!

Set the exact time resolution you need for your steps: 1/8, 3/4, 7/8, 3/16T, 15/1D, 13/32 and so on. 

Global Main Rate

Shrink or expand your sequence according to your needs. Good sequence, but you want it longer? Just set 2 to get double length, or why not, 1.5, 0.5, 1.3, etc! Try automation on this for granted incredible results. 

Bend

Change the movement of the playhead from linear to exponential or logarithmic.

Advanced Chance Functions

Set chance to get triggered for each step, get immediate visual feedback thanks to the opacity factor. Enable hold function to keep on last triggered note in case of silent notes.

Advanced Pitch Random

Set chance for each interval to be part of a randomly generated pitch sequence. You choose the flavour, MOOR creates lines for you!

Lock Duration Mode

The lock switch lets you randomize steps duration, all preserving the current total length.

Clip Export

Once you created killer lines, you can export them as Live clips with one click: quick and easy!

How It Works

“MOOR” is an arbitrary contraction of words “Mono Oracle”, that was the codename during the development. This is still useful to explain the nature of this device: – Mono: it’s a monophonic step sequencer – Oracle: it lets user ask for something, then it elaborates an answer MOOR starts as a standard mono step sequencer: you set a time resolution, and pitch and velocity values for each step. Around these core features, several functions make it special. Two new parameters are added to each step: chance and exclusive duration. Chance works similarly as in AutoBeat device, but it offers here an improvement specially designed for a melodies sequencer as MOOR is: the hold mode. You can set different chance factors for each step, globally, via the random and scramble functions, or exclusively, editing step by step with mouse or Push2. The result is that, depending on its chance factor, some steps, sometimes, do not trigger the note, letting silence fill the sequence in a controlled-random way. Enabling hold mode, a note off message is sent just when a new note on message comes, that means that for each silent note, the previous one is kept active: this mode creates still continuously changing sequences, but with, instead of silence, notes of different length.

Exclusive Duration is another great feature of MOOR: considering the time resolution you set, it’s possible to refine the duration of each step. Each step can be set to 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200, or 400% of the time resolution: this introduces the chance to create complex sequences with a step sequencer! You can set this parameters manually, or globally, and this introduces an important feature, the duration lock mode: when you have a sequence with a duration, let’s say 1 bar, if you randomize durations, the global length of the sequence will change. This opens to new, exciting, let’say wild perspectives, and is cool, but, if you want to experiment with step durations, all keeping the original length of the sequence, you can do it: enabling the duration lock mode! Then MOOR will find for you randomized durations, but their sum will always gives the original length of the sequence, isn’t amazing? A given number of steps, at a given time resolution, steps with pitch, velocity, chance, duration values. All of this gives us a sequence, and MOOR offers several parameters to manipulate it. Processing the sequence as cyclic signal, MOOR can twist it thanks to scale and phase distortion operations! MOOR can also make your life easy when you go on stage: you can store, and recall, up to 4 snapshots in a preset or, even quicker, you can export your sequences to Live clips! As often happens with K-Devices, you can accurately control and define each aspects of the multiple features manually, or wisely exploit the advanced random functions included. In both ways, MOOR will bring you really far! The user interface of MOOR is just beautiful, made to be self explanatory: when you edit a parameter, animations on interface will let you easily understand what the parameter does. Of course you also get an accurate description of parameters in the Live Info View.

Push2 and MOOR

If you have a Push2, you’ll love the template MOOR brings under your hands! In addition to the standard parameters mapping, you can enable the custom grid for improved control options. Just tap on a pad, that represents a step, and you’ll be able to quickly edit all parameters for it, getting a smart visual feedback from pads colour. You’ll also get an exclusive copy/paste function to easily transfer parameters value from a step to another!

OOG Series

MOOR is part of OOG series! OOG tools are designed to write music and control instruments and effects with a different approach and new features. Starting as a familiar kind of tools (basically step sequencers), these devices go beyond the classic functions. Being their engines audio-driven, OOG devices bring sound synthesis and processing technics (as sync, phase distortion, etc) to modulation and MIDI sequences manipulation, opening to new exciting perspectives.

These are killer devices for users that want to go wild with time signatures, complex time, micro articulation, IDM and experimental music; but they are also so versatile and easy to handle! They will become the best partners also for users looking for catchy bass lines, straight beats, and groovy modulations!

OOG devices come with a new, self-explanatory, beautiful user interface. Almost no labels on it, replaced by symbols, each parameter shows its function thanks to graphic animations. Of course, each parameter also is accurately described in the Live Info View.
