KaiGen

plugins and patches for Max and Ableton Live

This is the home for my generative plugins (mostly) and some of the other plugins I use with Made Audible and my solo work. All the plugins are free to download and use. If you use them, please let me know, I’m always curious what people do with these things!

If you want to thank me, consider purchasing one of my albums that feature the patches. In particular: The Desert Fathers, Endless Pie and KaiBorg. Available here: http://music.jeffkaiser.com.

Please feel free to contact me about this software via the contact page linked here.
