M4L.RhythmVAE – VAE Rhythm Generator for Max for Live/Ableton Live

Variational Autoencoder(VAE)-based rhythm generation device for Ableton Live/Max for Live. This plug-in software allows artists/musicians to train and use the rhythm generation model within the music production software(DAW). 

Users of the device can drag and drop MIDI files containing rhythm track and train the model. Once trained, they can automate the transition of the latent vector of the VAE model and generate dynamically changing various rhythm patterns.

The device simplifies the otherwise complicated and cumbersome process of training and utilizing generational models and allows artists to explore the possibility of AI freely. We aimed to democratize the use of AI in the music production process.
