Confetti (M4L devices (some using FluCoMa))

A bit of a cross-post from the lines forum, but here are Confetti, a bunch of devices I’ve been making which take bits from my older Max patches and makes them easier to use.

Library of M4L devices based on the modules in The Party Van, Cut Glove, and TPV2.

I will slowly add more modules to this as I go through and convert them, generally with some refactoring/improvements, and better commenting/documentation. At the time of posting this 7 have been completed. I will also be creating some new ones in the same formfactor (working on a simplified and improved version of The Chocolate Grinder at the moment, which will be a more accurate emulation of a skipping CD player).

The first major refactor is the revamped version of Cloud.


Cloud is an onset-based “real-time” granularization effect with some snazzy machine learning under the hood.

The parameters are as follows:
Activity - Determines the overall rate of activity (including grain durations)
Mode - Selects between “chunk” or “grain” mode. (chunk is a slow/singular playback mode with grain mode being a fast/granular mode)
Pitch - Controls random playback speed depth. (0 = no speed manipulation)
Timbre - Crossfades between different signal decomposition layers (0 = “harmonic” layer only, 50% = all layers, 100% = “transients” only
Blend - Blend between dry and wet audio (50% = both at 100%)
Width - Stereo width of grain playback


Live/M4L or Max (Mac/Windows).


Additional documentation/videos forthcoming.
Cloud uses the HIRT and FluCoMa libraries (all dependencies are built into M4L device, so no need to download anything).
