Subject: 3.5 and My Patches

Hello to all you Maxers out there,

I just received my copy of 3.5 and it seems that somehow the creator
codes for my patches were changed from max2 to max4 that were included
on the CDrom. These patches are in the third party examples/Witte
folder.  If you double click the patches you get "the application that
created....can't be found." The patches will work fine once you change
the creator code back to max2.

On a better note the new interface objects (Unsupported/MegaMax folder)
from Stephen Kay are awesome.  Thank you Stephen for making Max even
better than ever.

I am looking for a cheap way to translate the signal coming from piazos
placed on percussion instruments into signals usable by midi, eventually
to be controlled in Max. I would like to know if anyone has used or has
informztion on any piece of hardware (DSP or analog) that might do the
trick. The midi part is easily taken care of, it is the signal part that
is causing the headache.

Thanks for any help.

re: piezo to midi

get yourself a basic stamp by Parallax. Costs about $100 & is easily
programmable and very versatile.  Check out Dan O'Sullivan's web page at
www.itp.tsoa.nyu.edu for more info on it.

cheers

Dave Mark's book, "Programming C on the Macintosh" is excellent and comes
with a mini C compiler.

Easiest way is to plug them into an Octapad or DrumKAT.  Also, I think the
Roland drum modules let you do this too (DR-4 & DR-5?).  The Octapad may
require you to pre-amp the piezos.
