I've already discovered one thing that can be improved:  spelling.

Just connect the left output of _bendin_ to a message box containing
"rate $1 128" and connect that to _movie_. Hope this helps.

Instead of the Snd object, why not use the Aiff object (from Ichi's objects)
or Aiff Player (Eric Singer) and the Ranger object (also from Ichi's
to set a later point for the start/end points of the audio?

Subject: MSP audio sync

Has anyone ever tried syncing an audio file with a sequence (like seq,
timeline, detonate, or mtr)?  About how long does the sync hold?  i.e. 30
seconds, 60 seconds?

Has anyone tried to lock a sequence using the fft sync output?

Subject: Complete MAX object list?

Hello List!

Working with Max lately, I've  been wondering why it is that the default
object list one gets when setting up an object box doesn't include all the
existing objects? Though I know I can edit the existing one, I wonder
whether anyone has made a full list and is using it, or whether anyone is
working with alternative lists of objects.

Is this a matter of space saving of sorts? Is there any place where I get
a full object list? Or perhaps make it dynamic somehow, i.e. that you add
an object or an alias or a loadable patch to a specific folder and it will
appear in the menu?

I just "moved up" to Max 3.5.8 from 2.5.2, so I have a whole lot of new
things to learn, so even being able to print a list of everything
available could help me organize my study.

Any suggestions? Thanks for your bandwith.

Subject: granular on MSP?


Is someone working with granular processing of
files and/or granular sintesys? (with MSP)
I do granulate for a long time with clm
and csound and I would like now some help on
the multi overlapping of sound bits on Max/MSP.
Some basic examples?
