MIDIMood have launched UHold, a Max for Live MIDI effect that enables hold and on-the-fly quantization.

UHold is the latest product from MIDIMood that gives you a new level of control over your keyboard in Ableton to create music on the fly that wasn’t possible before.

Key Features:

Classical Note Hold Mode

In this mode, releasing notes will not send note-off messages.
Pressing a new note will send note-off messages to match all the currently pressed notes.

Anchor Note Hold Mode

This mode works just like the classic mode with two exceptions:

  1. As long as at least one note is still being pressed, all released notes are kept on.
  2. Releasing the last note will release all hold notes including the last one.

Toggle Note Hold Mode

In this mode, pressing a note will toggle between note-on and note-off depending on the current note state.

Note Sync

Auto quantizing of MIDI notes when Ableton Live is in playback or recording state.
Quantize options are: 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2 bars.
