Subject: Re: Max on the web

Has anyone out there used max to trigger multiple media (quicktime 3
streaming compressed image and audio) in a netscape browser on or
offline? We had an idea last year using director and fetch to upload
meta refreshing pages using sensor technology in an installation. It
worked but was slow and you couldn't really see or hear any correlation
between the meta refreshing content and the actual human
interaction/reaction. Any experience in terms of programming and
applications used for both on and offline would be of interest.

Mailing lists are very effective for problem avoidance when under
deadlines or for dealing with companies whose technical support is
either non-existent or ineffectual.

That's not a criticism of Opcode - I've never dealt with them
directly, being in the UK. Certainly, Opcode's previous UK dealership
gave execrable support, which is why I've not upgraded an Opcode
product for several years. I've not dealt with SCV yet - as I say, I
don't upgrade anything any more.

Hi Maxers,

excuse this slightly tangential post, but can anybody offer advice or
point me to information on how Max/MSP has performed on Macs running G3
upgrades, such as the cards offered by Newer Technologies? And would it
improve the performance of MSP significantly to have the  ultra/wide SCSI
internal drive option offered with the current G3s?

The expertise of this group is appreciated, as always.

To the contrary - upon my request some years ago a kind tech at Opcode told
me 'how to configure the Studio 4 properly for two computer use'. This does
not work and was only confirmed by others on the list with practical
experience (and a few nights of my own rebootings).

Subject: making  "GaMa-Oke" together?

SaRiGaMa's Oil Vending Orchestra
would like to propose you to join our "Hz"-links!
This is to  prepare sound-files
which could be called "BROTHERS"
by starting from common Hz and making the harmonic movement
between each files "www"-oriented.
Can you join this with some results you can create with your MSP-MAX system?

What our orchestra intend is to prepare a "GaMa-Oke" a background "karaoke"
and let it be played at our studio jam thang.:

If you could start from latter root-Hzs....
this will help a lot to let us bind sounds
suitable to our "SONG no.5":


these all have common harmonics


to make things PD oriented....
I prepared a banner:

If each participant's www-page contributed for this project (under condition
 mentioned by this banner...) can be linked to each other....this linkage
 teach the visitor the relationship between material-files and people can
 his favorites and combine the resulting sound-files of do looping things...

excuse me english is horrible....

Any project like this before?

Hellooooo Maxers,

I have just updated the Max digest Archive with all the latest issues
and it can now be searched.  I couldn't get my ISP to install a search
CGI onto the personal web server because of security issues, but I think
I have solved this problem another, less eloquent  way.  Check it out

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
