sending them
out to receive-objects.

Subject: overdub with DETONATE

Has anybody figured out a way to do overdubbing using the DETONATE object?
Or is it - as I suspect - simply impossible...?

I assume that there was supposed to be some data in the coll object
in this example?  Because it doesn't seem to do anything otherwise.

Could be that you didn't check the "save coll in patcher" option
before making this example?  =

I sure wish that the default of the coll object was to have this
checked.  I can't count the number of times I've created a patch
with a complex coll file only to lose a bunch of work due to the
above problem.

I used several detonate objects (one for each track/instrument/part) all
feeding into yet another detonate and it worked fine. Occasionally some
tracks were off by 5 ticks once I opened them in Performer but that was
the worst things got. Keep your tracks clear, save the results and
re-insert them at the top of your chain. Hope that helps.

Can anyone tell me why the follow object won't accept hook? I'm getting
the follow "doesn't understand" hook message in MAX window.

Subject: Lists of Lists - Trees

I would go to my Computer Science class and watch the teacher draw and talk
about trees.  Binary trees, search trees ie- depth first search, yada yada
yada...

Then I'd go to my music theory class and watch the teacher draw trees on
the board as he was talking about H. Schenker (sp?) and those other guys
(whose names escapes me) with a book called something like "Grand Musical
Theory" (or somthing like that.  Can someone bail me out here?) which had a
line of music broken down into a tree,  ie- each note was a node on the on
the lowest part of the tree.

As I see it, higher nodes have a list attached to them, it's lower nodes.
This is very flexable yet bias toward dividing music into blocks of time.

Just a thought...

MAGMA Announces PCI Expansion for the Apple PowerBook G3 Series

San Diego, CA: MAGMA announced that their three and seven slot PCI
expansion systems are now compatible with the G3 Series PowerBooks from
Apple. A MAGMA PCI expansion system adds PCI slots to Apple's
PowerBook=AE.G=
3
Series in a separate enclosure. The portable 3 slot PCI expansion system is
an ideal solution for users who need more PCI slots, but do not want to
deal with a bulky full size expansion system. The 7 slot system is an ideal
solution for users who need more than three slots to get the most out of
their portable computer. This product is essential for PowerBook users who
need their portable computer to function like a desktop or tower Mac.

PowerBook G3 customers now have the freedom to attach practically anything
to their portable computer, including humanz.
