I manage 3 licenses of Max in diferent places and have lost 5 keys in the
past year.
Reasons are : OS updates, installations on external travelling disk,
mismatch between systems,
erasing authorization, crashes.
Computers are already quite complicated.
Why Opcode adds more troubles.
I feel like beeing considered as a cheeter by default.
One of the feelings I hate above all.
Why such a paranoia ? (pourquoi tant de haine?)
Is Max a videogame or a soft witch the whole world will crack and copy?
Should it be so protected that you can't use external disks to install it
and move
with them without loosing the keys, that if you upgrade your system you
will not
be able to intall the new key without loosing one or two ?

Pour Opcode comme pour beaucoup de negociants,
les bons clients ne sont que des pigeons.

Just, look the way they answer our questions on line.
Etonnant n'est-ce pas ?
?????????????????????????????=8A

One more question : how many people have 200 free Mo
on their startup disk for Max ?

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Subject: Studio 4 - multiple computers

Hi folks,
sorry for my neverending Studio 4 story !

Chapter III
The secret world of multiple computers

Studio 4 provides inputs for two Mac serial ports which allows two
different Macs to access the same midi ports.
I did to connect my 7600 PPC under OMS 3.2.3 with port A sending notes and
midi clock via MAX.
Everything works fine.
Then I tried  to recieve midi clock from the PPC with my notebook ( 250)
on port B. This is very easy to achive with selecting "Studio 4 Modem" as
OMS source for a rtin object.

The problems started when i tried to send notes from the notebook to the
Studio 4.
Every time, i tried to access the same MIDI out port via the PPC and the
notebook i got big trouble like missing notes  etc.
I have no idea what causes this behavour.

( I have checked the OMS  "multiple computers" option on both machines =
with
no success )

Right now i am using a second  simple Midi interface for the notebook but
via this setup i can only access one Midi out port. So it`s not  an =
elegant
way at all ....

Ideas ? Solutions ? Coments ??

Thanxxx !

m  o  n  o  l  a  k  e  .
a collaboration between gerhard behles and robert henke.
fine electronic music since 1995.

Subject: Telephone Touch Tones

I believe it was on this list that someone asked about telephone touch
tones.

I just came across a program that generates the tones as WAV files: "Touch
Tone WAV file generator", by Don Cross

The web site,

http://www.intersrv.com/~dcross/programs.html#tchtone

has information about the frequencies of the various tones, and I think
that source code for the tone generating program is also available.

Subject: Novice's MAX Bach Project Improved Already

I've already figured out an important simplification of my MAX version
of a 4-voice  J.S. Bach Canon (BWV 1074), plus I've learned to upload it
as a text file. To use it, drag your curosor over the text below
beginning with "max v2," copy it and paste it to Simple Text (or some
such program), save it and open it with Max. It should work!
