I have been experimenting with using a cd player with max, and although I
know that there are programs out there that can control the volume along
with other cd functions.  However, I know the max object does not control
volume, is there another outside object, or maybe a work-around that would
take care of it?
Thanks,
Andy K.

I'm between two visits to STEIM in Amsterdam, the developers of LiSa.  It's
fantastic! Try to get hold of the new commercial version (1.1) - much
better than the demo, and it only costs $200.  I'm also keen to use the
program with Max, but was told they don't make the best of bedpartners.  I
can let you know how I get on though, if you like.

Someone told me they got excellent results micing a heartbeat using a bass
guitar pickup, but I can't remember who...

Speaking of which, how do you manage to get around the single serial port?
I used to have a 280c, and could never get Max to recognize that single
port for use with the serial object...

Subject: Hart sound

Answer to  David Crandall  :

A way of getting good hart sound is to get the analogical signal out of a=
n
medical hart sensor (=E9lectroacrdiogramme en fran=E7ais) portable one do
exist.Then put the HF receiver signal into a analogical synthetisor or a
A/MIDI convertor and then follow signal with a generator of your choice.
But of course it's not cheap=8A Otherwise try to trig directly the genera=
tor
from the signal you get from the HF receiver.

In addition to David Z.'s suggestion, I would recommend using the LCD
object for displaying text at any font size. At least that's how I did it
myself when facing a similar problem.

Subject: [cd] vol. change via SCSI?

Would any 'MAXers' writing externals out there be able to adapt the
current [cd] object so that it could control the volume of CD-Audios via
SCSI ? Every desktop 'CD Remote' I've seen can do this on a slider. How
about an extra inlet controlling volume ?

Working with multiple CD players, this would prove a valuable addition -
effectively producing volume envelopes, so a CD could operate much like a
stereo samplers attack, hold and release times.

(I'm expexting my 3.5 update next week and presume the new [cd] object
remains the same as the 2.5.2 version)

Any ideas ?

best wishes,

Gregg Wagstaff.

Hello MAXers,

Any news on an update to the table object for 3.5?

Its behaviour when receiving the bang message (quantile) is not what it's
supposed to be. Any info appreciated.

With Chooser off, minimum extensions, it works fine. ( I use a Studio IV,
OMS, 7.5.2 MacOS)

Hi to all,

I need some help about Yamaha CBX-D3/D5 hard Disk Recording System.

There is a manner to play, and/or record, a Sound File by this machine with
the Max?

There is a program written with Max that enable MixDown and Effect Editor
for the DBX-5, by Pavlos Andronikos. It's a good program, but don't enable
the play...

Any suggetions and informations are welcome!

programmed in MAX, is now available at the following ftp sites:

ftp://ftp.ircam.fr/pub/incoming/max-patches/
ftp://serial.music.uiowa.edu/pub/upload/

GrainMaker 2.0 includes the following new features:
1) can transpose soundfiles (including random transposition per
     grain)
2) writes score files directly to the hard drive (no more crashing
     with the text objects)
3) is a stand-alone app (FAT--runs on 68k or PPC)
     a) GrainMaker 2.0 with picts shows grain envelopes as they are
           selected
     b) GrainMaker 2.0 (no picts) requires less memory

Enjoy!

*******************************************************
Dear Uncle Max,
When I bought version 2.5 it contained an accompanying listing of Max
users around the world. I am creating a software guide to Max that lists
various informations applicable to the Max user.
Some of the items:

1. Max users -this should list areas of interest, patches and contact a
E-dress & URL. This is for anyone using the software, being able to know
who else is doing stuff in your area of interest can be helpful to both
sides.

2. A complete list of the publicly available patches. If anyone has
this, I'd like to exchange notes. Anyone who has sent me a patch
directly will be contacted to verify whether or not they want their work
available to the general public.

3. Listing of hardware that is being used with Max -The Beam, I-Cube,
Radio Baton, WaveRider, PowerGlove, etc. If you have something that
works great with Max tell me.

4. Other software that may be of interest to the Max user.

5. Other sources like web & ftp sites, user groups, how to subscribe and
unsubscribe to this list, etc.

I have set up a "special" E-mail account for this project, so please
direct your info to: unclemax@iname.com  (it will make my job easier).

I hope that those who do not wish to submit their information will
really consider doing so anyway. Having this resource available will be
good for all of us who use and love Max.
