Hum... I checked it this morning but the path on the FTP server is not good
and I didn't find the file at all. Furthermore, the french version of the
page is not available.

>Hello, I'm would like to get in contact with Max users, -who use MAX to

Hi, I have written software to view and control up to 40 D&B P1200A
amplifiers. It is part of my Theatre Sequencer package. It will control
the amplifiers with any combination of cards depending on the speakers
you are using.

Incidentally, I also worked with D&B with the development of their own
amplifier control software.

If you want to control D&B amplifiers you have to buy the RIB (Remote
Interface Bridge) which is a box that links to 12 amplifiers. This has
MIDI and RS232 interfaces to let you access the amps.

For those of you who don't know about D&B loudspeakers they are simply
the best in the world, they sound good, they are well made and the
electronics and amplification is really reliable. More importantly all
the people who work for D&B are really nice chaps. ALL OTHER SPEAKERS
SHOULD BE BANNED - if only everyone could afford them...

Theatre Sequencer and the D&B plug-in can be downloaded from my web page:

Subject: Philatelists meeting on the 23rd

salutations all

I'm not sure how many people who subscribe to this list live in
Melbourne. Apart from the amazing Garth Paine who gave me my first jaw
dropping visions of Max. But just in case anyone does, or anyone else
happens to be passing thru, or anyone who just feels they need it .....
Here is a quick note of invitation.=20

The sixth months of my New Media fellowship come to a close on the 23rd
of this Month. To commemorate this rather momentous occasion I will be
holding a presentation of my research to date. A viewing of the work in
progress so to speak. Demonstrating the hard/soft/wet ware I have
developed for my s.t.a.m.p. project [space, time and motion platforms]

d.tails.

23.12.97 - 4.30 PM - Level 6, Building 8, RMIT. - Enter from Swantson
street, catch the lift to the 6th floor, follow signage from there.=20

I realise this is not the most convenient date but it would make an
excellent distraction from the christmas shopping. Suitable for ages 3
and up.

Subject: interview with robert moog

hi folks,

This was posted on another forum list that I read and thought I'd spread
the word...

        Really-From: "J. Munnshe" 

        Hello!

        I've interviewed to Robert Moog. As you know, he developed the Moog
        synthesizers, very used in electronic music. I've published the
interview
        in Amazing Sounds. You can read it at:

        http://www.amazings.com/articles/article0036.html

        ("Amazing Sounds" is a free online / email-distributed magazine
about
        electronic music, Ambient, New Instrumental. You can subscribe
sending a
        message to
        amaze-request@amazings.com with the command: SUBSCRIBE AMAZE AS
(your email)

I wouldn't call it "can't miss" (it's pretty brief), but it can't hurt to
read!

Subject: MegaMAX v1.2 released

Announcing the release of the MegaMAX Collection v1.2 at:

                   http://www.musikinetix.com

New objects include:

<3D_Gradient_Panel> - draw cool-looking metallic and other types of
     gradient panels, and use them as backgrounds for user interfaces.
<3D_Outline> - use on top of panels for those indented or embossed
     outlines that are so popular in most applications today.
 - draw colored areas of patterns and uses as backgrounds.
prefsFile - create a real, application specific preferences file in
     the system folder, and use it to store data in custom resources.

Also many new features and enhancements to existing objects, such as
ability to specify font sizes of any size (i.e. > 36), and support
for Offscreen Drawing in some objects.

Please visit: www.musikinetix.com for complete information, including
an interactive demo where you construct an interface step by step.

Demo versions are available for download for both 3.5.x and 3.0 and
earlier. Registered users can download the latest versions also.

Also, visit the "MaxCorner" on www.musikinetix.com for links to other
Max sites, and downloadable, (free) public-domain objects for MAX.

Subject: New object: collX

Hello MAXers,

I finally finished what I've threatened to do for awhile:

'collX' allows you to specify an optional file type and creator type,
so that the coll files can have a custom icon to match your application.
Other enhancements included the ability to put up a "prompt" when the
save or load dialog is presented (i.e. "Please select Performance =

File..."), and a progress thermometer (for loading really long =

coll files, or really slow computers :-).  Otherwise, it _is_ the coll
object (same code) and fully compatible with your present patches.

'collX' is FAT, and is available (for free - public domain) from:

                   http://www.musikinetix.com

Go to the MaxCorner and click on "PublicDomain".

Enjoy, Stephen Kay
