Subject: Re: Movie Projection

Jef,

Why don't you get a separate video out card for your PB and then drag or
position your Movie to this second screen with a black background for
projection. Movie can still be contolled via MAX without bars etc.
This gets around you having to select the movie on your main desktop. You
are then limited by the zoom of your projector as to the scale of the
final image. I'm sure satisfactory results can be had.

best of luck,

Gregg Wagstaff.

Subject: MAX editor/librarians

Dear MAX users,

I'm interested in building editor/librarians in MAX for my various pieces
of equipment (top of the "to do" list is the Yamaha TG77). I'm wondering
if anyone would be willing to share their experience in doing this with
me. I have a set of specific and quite unusual requirements as to how I
want the editor to behave (hence the reason why I'm willing to invest the
time, rather than use commercially available s/ware, in first place...),
but since the documentation on how to do this which comes with MAX is
fairly minimal, it would be very helpful to be able to look at some real
working example patches - whether for the TG77 or not...

Thanks,

Nicky Hind

Subject: Question for Max Oldtimers

I'm trying to run Max 2.2 and OMS 1.2.3 on my powerbook 170 and can't get
any MIDI signals in or out.  The OMS seems to be set up ok, but when I
launch Max, it gives me the MIDI set-up window with no ports on the -in- or
-out- side to select.
Does anybody know where my problem lies?

Thanks in advance.

I'll bet you're using System 7.6.1 or higher. There seems to be a feedback
loop in the Sound Manager input in this System software, when you select
"Through" on the Sound Control panel.

Simply unchecking the through box will eliminate your problem.

Subject: msp aiff playback

Dear Uncle Max,
Has anyone made a simple aiff chooser player with pitch control?
I've been playing around with the example and tutorial files this evening
and am having trouble coming up with something.  I am interested in adding
this to a random music generator instead of the MIDI output that I'm
currently using.  I'd be curious if anyone has some modifications to this
patch.

I've done many variations on this concept but this should give you the
basic idea of what kind of horrible stuff we're dealing with. I would have
included the aiff chooser that I cam up with but I started getting errors
on it and hense I decided to post instead.
Anyway, I'd appreciate any E-mailed variations.

I'll document lores~ in more detail soon.

>(2) More code examples.  Particularly helpful would be examples which show

The source for index~ will be available at http://www.cycling74.com/support
within an hour. It demonstrates how to access a buffer~, and includes
the buffer~ data structure.

The menu item isn't going to happen, but I'll add the saving of the
status window position. You could always make a patch with a big
button connected to a message box containing "; dsp status" and
put it in your startup folder.

>(4) Virtual time when writing to file.

Some kind of non-real-time feature is something I hope to do later
this year. The rumor is you can sort of get away with it now if
you just connect your CPU-heavy patch to sfrecord~ and not to
dac~, but I've never tried it myself.

To my knowledge, Sonic doesn't have any way for third parties
to support their cards.
