This is rad. Love the way it opens, love the way it ends. The glitchy percussive stuff in the middle is great too.

Thanks!  This whole piece is pretty much created with sine tones.  Love em. smile

Love this - especially the clicking, assuming that’s fast amplitude zerocrossings (maybe by accident?) either way i think this is what Max excels at. Allowing you to make errors musical.

This could tell a story. Simple, but beautiful

Cheers!  Yep, the clicking is definitely intentional.  I have a parameter to slew the clicks out but only used it sparingly on a few of the settings.  Hoping to develop this into something further.

Sine tones are killer for sure. Nice stuff.

Excellent sine-ergy!! Sorry for the pun big_smile I think it's amazing you can get so many sounds out of a waveform, and the compo has a great fantasy/dream quality to it!

Haha... and thanking you!  I'm a fan of working within restrictions even though I have a lot of gear.  Forces creativity  smile

each hit is like a sonic illusion - i'm not sure if it's a low note or a high note.  I love it!
