No, it’s not April 1.
Pac-Man is coming to Ableton Live, thanks to a new Max for Live device developed by Isotonik Studios.
Isotonik hasn’t fered much information on the forthcoming tool beyond a sneak preview on Facebook, but it forms part its Arcade Series, which currently includes generative sequencers based on Asteroids, Tetris and Pong.
It appears as if Isotonik’s Pac-Man device will be centred around the game’s ghosts, with the interface featuring a control to affect their individual speed, which seems to be linked to variables like note velocity and length.
There’s no release date for the Pac-Man device yet, but the other devices in Isotonik’s Arcade Series are available as a pack for $33.13/£25.99. Check out a video the Asteroids sequencer below.
