Subject: Smart harmonizer patch?


Can anyone point me to a source for a "smart MIDI harmonizer" patch for MAX?
I'm looking for a full function professional level patch so I assume it is
not freeware.
Please excuse me if my terminolgy is a little off. I am new to MAX and this

Thank you,

If you qualify as an educator or student, you can get the academic price,
which is about $100.

Also - Those wanting to do real-time DSP manipulations on non-mac hardware
want to check out SynthBuilder. We're using it a lot at CCRMA for physical
modeling, etc. (It was developed here.) It is Max-like in it's object-based
interface. There is a windows95 port in the works.

I don't know if the deal is still on, but for a while Metrowerks was
selling off copies of the Academic '97 version of Codewarrior for $20.
You can check it out at their web page at

BTW, 'spell' does the same as 'atoi' followed by 'iter'...

Subject: Max -> DAE

I heard a rumor that somewhere out there is a Max external that allows
control of DigiDesign hardware.  Is this just a rumor?  I would gladly
build such an external myself, but getting the Digi API's is harder
than .

is there a Max/DAE external?!
someone please enlighten me.
