Use xtimein/tcin (not sure what it's called now) which will convert raw
MIDI timing bytes into a stream of SMPTE values (in bits).  Look for the
"Timetools*" folder in your Max install.

Nope--MIDI Manager not needed...

Greetings fellow Maxers

Has any one created a MAX  Mac  Editor/Librarian for the  Roland
JV1080/2080/XP-50/80 keyboards/synths?

If this is not an appropriate request for help for this list, please let
me
know!

Thanks for any help

If you're using Max 3.0, you can feed the MTC directly to it
either from Vision or OMS and use midiin and xtimein, part of Steve
Ellison's Time Tools&Others (on the IRCAM FTP site), to read it.

Max 3.5 support OMS Timing directly via the timein object.

The manual is wrong. Detonate objects share data with edetonate
objects in a timeline, but not with other detonate objects. This
isn't to say I won't be updating the object to support this feature
in the future. Indeed now that I realize it is promised in the manual,
I should probably make it a priority. Undo would be nice too. Sigh.

One thing you could do is surround each of your detonates
with differently named sends and receives. Then you can use #1
inside the subpatch as an argument to a send or receive, which,
when the subpatch is loaded with an argument naming one of your
detonate sends/receives, will connect to them.

Paul is hoping that the problem would be solved if detonate could
share names, then you could just say "detonate #1" in the subpatch
and have it be the name of a detonate somewhere else. This is
almost true, except that currently, each detonate stores its
data in a patcher, so if it happened that Paul's generalized
subpatcher detonate was loaded after the one containing the data,
it would wipe out all the data that had been read in. So I'll have
to make an empty detonate not save itself in a way that causes
existing data to be cleared.

Subject: URGENT: Max 3.0 on PowerBook 3400?

Hi fellow Maxers!

I'm about to go to a conference to demonstrate some MAX application I
wrote. It only works under Max 3.0, not 3.5 (though we have that version
too). I'll have a PowerBook 3400c/180MHz available there, with System 7.6.1
on it. My question is: Does anybody know whether this combination
(Hardware-OS-Max) works? Or do I need an older System (if that's possible
at all on 3400's)?

If you know anything, please let me know as soon as possible, and with a
CC: to my above email address and to  - Thanks!

From:    Gordon Adams 
Subject: Max for Newton?

I think that my answer may be found in part in the fact that there's no
Wintel version, but is there any chance of a MaxPlay port (perhaps a
MaxPlay Lite?) for the Newton?  It just seems (for me, anyway) like an
ideal match -- an extraordinarily compact portable unit, with a built-in
controller interface -- no system boot time, no "where'm I going to set
this thing up?"...  Plus, the new MP2000s *cook*!  I know that very basic
MIDI apps have been developed for the platform, so it is, at least in
theory, technically possible.

Thanks,
Gordon.

Chris,
Use the tcin object instead.  I have had trouble sometimes getting it to
respond to the proper port, but other than that it works pretty good.  If it
won't respond to the Studio5 interface directly, try pumping the MTC out a
port and then looping it back in with a short Midi Cable to another Midi In.
 This works 100% of the time for me.  I'll email you directly with a small
patcher that I use to SMPTE lock the seq object for playback of Midi
sequences.  We use it everywhere.

Subject: Simple MIDI Sysex

Hi

I am trying to build a simple app which lets me save sysex data from my
Roland GR1 and my Proteus 2 to disk using Max. I cannot figure it out.
Although I would like to be able to edit data at some point right now I
only want to be able to save to disk and restore from disk.

Any ideas?
