Subject: Re: snd object, number of voices

Many and overwhelming thanks to our dear David Z. for sharing his wisdom
with us! I just ResEdit-ed the snd object which I set to 8 voices maximum
for my 68040 machine - and it works much better: no more interruptions when
overlapping different samples. However (and this is the backside of the
coin): the responsiveness of the GUI environment is (naturally) much
weaker. Of course, one has to take into account that the power of the CPU
is always limited. But I can live with it as long as the music comes

Perhaps some MAXers out there on PowerMacs could report how it works on
their machines. As a test object for heavy utilizing of the snd object you
could use my patch of "Amazing Maze":

If you do so, please subsitute the snd object which is included there with
the changed one!

Cheers, and thanks for the discussion

Subject: Max & ethernet ?


I'm involved in a large, permanent setup including sensors, 02r's, lotsa
speakers, interactive animation etc.
The guys working on the sensor side of the project use PC's with 12 bit DA
cards to sample the sensory input. The data is passed thru a local
ethernetwork between the sensor handling PC's. They would like to pass the
data to Max without converting it to MIDI first, and I would too, if only
to lower the pressure on MIDI throughput.

We have a weatherstation connected to the serial port via the serial object
which works just fine but we now need to check possibilities of passing
data from PC's to MAC via ethernet. Is there anyone that knows how to get a
byte from a PC ethernetwork? Would Telnet be the way to go ?

I use the powerglove in some of my work.  I connect it to the macintosh ADB
port using the "GoldBrick" by Transinfinate Systems.  I don't think they
are being made anymore, but eric singer was selling them awhile back.  He
still may have a few left.  I hope this helps.
