"UltomatonM4L" uses Conway's Game of Life to 'calculate' and randomize events. These events can be mapped to any mappable parameter within Live.
UltomatonM4L exists as a MIDI and an audio device. It can be activated in various ways. By default it sets to be activated manually. One can also test incoming frequencies/note values, input volume/velocity or a combination of both to an internal module, which decides whether or not ultomaton will start/stop.
Input source for this demo is the OST of Mega Man II (Bubble Man Stage) ;-)
Both devices are available for download on the maxforlive.com website : http://www.maxforlive.com/library/index.php?by=any&q=ultomaton
