Max For Live Devices via Robert Henke of monolake

via monolake where you'll find the full list and downloads.

"This page hosts a selection of MaxForLive devices. MaxForLive is a flavor of the Max programing language that only works in conjunction with Ableton Live and allows users to create their own devices and to share those. In order to use these effects, one needs to own Ableton Live Version 8.1 or higher and the MaxForLive extension. More info about MaxForLive can be found on the websites of Ableton and Cycling74."

Wikipedia actually has a decent write-up on Robert Henke if you are not familiar with his work. He is actually the man behind the Monodeck (see here for prior posts). "Henke is a software engineer who develops custom software and hardware for live performances. As well as working as an engineer for Ableton, Henke designed the Atlantic Waves software for performing live with other producers in different countries simultaneously[2].

In 2003, Henke designed the Monodeck, a midi-controller interface for spontaneous editing and effects work during live performances, even without having to look at the computer screen[3]. The Monodeck and its successor, Monodeck II, control Ableton through patches designed with Max/MSP."
