Subject: does xbendout work for QT2.5?

Did I ask this before?
I'm still using QT2.5 as the sound module for my MAX3.0.
I love microtuning things so use a bunch of xbendout oriented things in
my patch....but now wondering...if my QT is handling 14bit-bend-date
correctly...my ear is not good enough to test this...ah..
So sad if it's only handling it as the 7bit thing and ignoring the rest.

BTW.
Is there any object that reads the ascii message....I mean message on
normal mail-exchangings...? I want to look for a way to interpret real
world language into MIDI.

Thanx in advance.

Dominic,

Have you tried using a begin~ object in connection with a selector~ object?
I had tried using mute~ as well, but found that the begin~/selector~ setup
works way better. Pull up the help file for selector~ to see a clear
example of how to set it up.

Subject: videoin object

Does anyone know if there is a new version of Eric SInger's videoin object
out there? The original version will not run under MAX versions > 2.5.2,
and is also unhappy with System 8.0. But it is a GREAT object and I'm
wondering if there is a new version. -- Maurice Methot

Someone asked about the GoldBrick ADB interface for Powergloves, the
other day, and I didn't have all the info in front of me, so I didn't
reply, however:

They were manufactured by Transfinite Systems, box N, MIT Branch PO,
Cambridge, MA 02139.
I must tell you though, that even when they were "available", this guy
was impossible to track down.  For a while a few years ago, the Goldbrick
treasure hunt seemed to be a main topic of this and other lists...

Anyhow, I managed to purchase one from Eric Singer ,
an impressive Maxer, and contributor to this list.  This was 4 or more
years ago.  He included not only the  original Transfinite disks, but a
diskette of all the externals and abstractions he'd evolved to deal w/
the glove's somewhat quirky output...

Well, good luck.  Let me know if you need to buy mine at some outrageous
price ;)

On a different, but similar note (shameless commercialism follows), I
have literally several dozen powergloves (with the L-array receivers).
Anyone want some, el CHEAPO?

cheers,

Funny you should mantion this, someone just asked me the same thing
yesterday and we put together a quick patch to do the trick!! (so I'm
sending it to the lmist in case anyone else is interested.

It may not always accurately store the mouse up/down information if you
draw rapidly.
Still, this might be a good starting point for some people.  Sorry it's not
commented.

Anyway, LCD does seem to drop out points when you draw quickly, however I
can't answer your question about the output rate.

Subject: Re: goldbrick/powerglove

Alas, I have no more Goldbricks available.  If there was enough interest,
someone might be able to track down Donald Eastlake, the guy who is
Transfinite.  He mentioned many years ago that he had parts and/or boards
to build another small batch.  Maybe he could be convinced to license the
plans, or something like that.  Contact me directly and I will send you
the last address I had for him.
