I have been working with M4L programmer Aleksandar Koruga on a new device. It is an idea DJ Bad Boy Bill and I had two years ago. It is essentially a noise generator. Like a Modular Synth it is always outputting a selectable noise type (White, Brown, Pink, Etc (-:). You can use the level to turn it up or the Filter cutoff to gradually expose it. The real magic comes with the rate knob. You can go from an upriser every 2 bars to a 4 on the floor Sidechain type of breathing white noise for your anthems. It can go beyond that as it reaches 1/64 beat mayhem!
The Spy Guitar is an Ableton Sampler instrument that features a unique Max for Live guitar fretboard visualizer. The instrument was sampled from the lovely Fender vi Bass Guitar . This updated version features upstroke and downstroke articulations as well as Pizzicato and Ebow style patches.

Sometimes you just need that Spaghetti Western James Bond sound. You would also be surprised to know how many of your favorite songs were based on the insanely unique sound and playability of this instrument.
Ever since a friend introduced me to it has become my main axe. Now I can not only play bass lines but melody and chords. Having both means I can cover more ground as a recording and live musician.
It is with this inspiration that I sat down and sampled this beauty. Originally I created these for my own studio use. So that I can beef up my playing and add cool accents to my music. I was not looking for perfection in recording. Even though I use the highest quality recording gear I can afford I wanted it's quirky musical character to come across . I recorded these in one take and then sliced them up in Ableton.
Turns out that the same sound and vibe I get from playing translated well into the programming of my first Sampler Instrument Rack Pack.
