Asteroids is a generative sequencer built in Max for Live. Inspired by the classic arcade game, asteroids move around an 8×8 grid triggering notes when they collide with each other.
Advanced sequencing modes makes Asteroids a powerful sequencer for both experimental/generative melodic sequences or intricate/polyrhythmic drum patterns.

I know this post is 2 years old and I might not get a reply, but here goes: I wanted to use asteroid with my new Launchpad Pro mk3 and was wondering how difficult it would be for me to tweek my copy of asteroids? Or if there’s a possible update in the making? 🙂
with high regards /schack
Hi Schack, thanks for getting in touch. It is possible that it will work, but depends how skilled you are in using M4L? If you open the patch, the part you would need to look at is the control_surface patcher. You could try the Launchpad Mk2 Pro version of Asteroids. From there you would need to update the patcher with the Launchpad Pro MK3 API. I don’t have a LPP Mk3 so am unable to test. I do have a Mk3 mini so will happily take a look at it at some point, but the API for the mini could be different to the pro.
