FPB Development & Teaching Platforms

Max for Live


The best platform on which to create a device to work specifically inside the Ableton Live DAW.

Max 8


The Stand Alone version of Max for Live, devices created in Max can run on pretty much any Windows PC or Mac.

Pure Data


Pure data is a related set of software development tools to Max but less featured. However it  can run on very basic Linux computers like Raspberry Pi offering very cost-effective music solutions.

FPB also develops for...


...VSTs, MOD & LV2, Supercollider, iOS* and Android*.

*additional consultation required for mobile app development.
