Ah, the sine wave…

For years, I have referred to this wonderful little waveform as “the atom of sound”. Without the sine wave, no other waveform could exist, since every complex or single-cycle wave is comprised entirely of sine waves – whether they are harmonically related or a cacophony of chaotic tones.

So, as an exercise, I created this month’s preset – Sine Of The Times – out of two single sine waves an octave apart, just to see if I could make it do as many tricks as possible via clever macro assignments.

The result exceeded my expectations and hopefully yours too.




yeah, adv coding in python with Ableton Live.


gonna fall in love..
