Subject: cd object

Dear fellow Max´ers!
I wonder if anyone is using the cd object with the latest Max version,
and how it works out. I´m especially interested in setups with 4 or
more cd-players/ crashes/ bugs etc.. Also: is there a cd object with
volume ctrl?
All the best.

I had trouble with the domain name "www.essl.at."  You can also get to
the Algorthmic Stream with this URL:

Subject: sending MIDI clocks via OMS's IAC bus

How do I send MIDI clocks to another application via OMS?  Or more
importantly, what objects should I use to generate/control MTC to send
to another application?  I'm a little stumped on this one.  I've seen it
done before, but I don't remember how...

TIA,
James

>How do I send MIDI clocks to another application via OMS?

You use the rtin and rtout objects to communicate MIDI clock
back and forth through OMS. To use rtout, you must send
MIDI real-time messages in decimal.  For example, 250 is
start, 252 is stop, and you would hook up a metro or pulse
object to bang a stream of 248's to send actual clock.

You need to create an Inter-Application Buss in OMS to
send this clock to another application.  This can be done
by double-clicking the IAC Driver icon in OMS Setup.  If
you don't have an IAC Driver, you will have to install it
from your OMS disk/CD as it's not part of the standard
install.

According to the information I have, IRCAM will be selling the jimmies, and
giving a discount to its MSP customers.

The sfrecord~ object records its input to hard disk. Output recording (that
you can also listen to) is coming soon.

The MSP Object Thesaurus is useful in answering questions of the form, "What
object does X?"

Steve Ellison's modifiers is indeed available for MaxFAT!
I just received it two days ago, and I put it on the ircam ftp two minutes
ago, just for you!

This is a nifty object to have. It's part of the EllisonFAT archive at:

All you need is a good book on DSP/digital filter theory, three eggs, two
cups of sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a dash of cinnamon.
