I use the LanBox by advanced electronics http://www.cds.nl
It costs about $350 and converts midi to DMX 512 (maximum 256 channels) at
20 signals per second.

Our Lanbox-LC 250 channel DMX lighting controller can do this and a lot
more. It costs only about $300. For more info see our site

Subject: The Glove

Greeting Maxers,

On my most recent foray into the world of toys, I saw "The Glove" (The
video game control Glove) from Reality Quest.  The box says it is 100%
compatible with the Sony Playstation.  Has anyone had any experience with
this device?  I know the PowerGlove is no longer available and the
Goldbrick interface is quite hard to find, but I am quite anxious to find a
glove controller that will work with MAX.

Good luck!

From:    Ed Hartley 
Subject: Re: error question

In a patcher that generates a lot of data at once, I'm getting the following
 error
message:"check failed:t_newptr in overdrive," Can someone shed some light on
 what's
happening here? I know that things really don't happen "at once," am I
trying to
 do
too much too fast? This patcher also generates long lists. Even though I'm
 keeping
them under 256 members, could I be over-filing some sort of memory buffer? I
 don't
get the error when I go out of overdrive, but this is a live performace
thing so
I'd rather not do that. Any thoughts?

By cheapest, do you mean computationally or financially?
What are the 5 options of control?  (Hardware? software?)
