Subject: Re: 8.1 sound problems

Hi fellow Maxers,

regarding those recent problem reports about sound i/o and playthrough
under MacOS 8.1, I stumbled across a suggestion in the German edition of
Macworld: Try replacing the "Monitors&Sound" control panel with the two
panels "Sound" and "Monitor" from the MacOS 8 CD. This, for example,
apparently fixes a bug on a 7100 under 8.1 where output can't be routed to
the headphones.

Might be worth a try. Let's hear if it helps (no pun intended :-).

Subject: Help: ICMC Proceedings

Dear fellow Maxers,

slightly off-topic, but could anybody give me the page numbers of the
reference below from the Proceedings of the International Computer Music
Conference? The online version doesn't have them. It's for an article in
the IEEE Multimedia fall special issue on music.

Lee, M. and Garnett, G. and Wessel, D., An Adaptive Conductor Follower,
ICMC Proceedings, 1992.

Thanks!

Jan

But isn't there a cd version that can drive ATAPI CD-ROM drives?
I was wondering how I would be using the G3 Powerbook that I just ordered
the other day.
Do I really have to attach an external SCSI device?

Thanks for any input on that!

Subject: Max Externals

hello,

I'd like to ask Max programmers if they know of any
references for getting started on programing
externals in C. Is this Object Orientated? Any books
I could check out. To Mr Zicarelli I guess you would
know this, how to get started with the SDK?
Also whos this Monica Gremlin

Yes, a printed version came with MAX (v2). Have they quit doing that?

Oh, it's right on the v3.5 CD in the SDK folder. Get a ream of paper, a
new ink-jet crtg., a binder and a 3hole punch and you shoud have a book
(aprox. 200 pgs). Also you would need one of the following versions of
C:

You can develop Max external objects that target only the 68K processor
family with Think C versions 6 or 7. You can then use this same source
code as the basis for writing a PowerPC compatible external using
.i.Symantec C++ ;version 8 or later. Think C does not produce code for
the PowerPC and Symantec C++ cannot create 68K =93code resources=94 (the
technical term for what a 68K Max external object is).
Traditionally, Max externals were developed using .i.Think C;. However,
with version 3.5, the preferred environment has switched to Metrowerks=92
.i.CodeWarrior;, and all of the examples in this manual assume the use
of CodeWarrior. This chapter discusses both Think C / Symantec C++ and
CodeWarrior for Max externals, as well as updating existing Think C
projects to compile under CodeWarrior. There is one Think C / Symantec
C++ example (called buddy) included with the Software Developer=92s Kit s=
o
you can refer to it as an example. In addition, you can obtain a
previous revision of this manual (version 8 or earlier) from an earlier
version of Max or a Max-related FTP site.

  This problem is either caused by your email client or your mail server.
This is due to an improper translation of the text's (usually) special
characters (returns, line feeds, accents etc.). If you are using a standard
email client, check to see what sort of translation it is using and make
sure it doesn't send 8 bit characters. If the problem is at your server end,
 have a chat with your admin (you might have to convince him to dump
MS-Outlook or some other MS product).

 The only other option I can think of are to either use something like
BBEdit to filter out the unwanted chars (can be scripted easily).

***************************************************************************

There are still some spaces left for the upcoming MAX/MSP Night
School at CNMAT July 13-17. If you are interested, contact Matt
Wright: matt@cnmat.berkeley.edu

***************************************************************************

MAX/MSP Night School
July 13 - 17, 1998
7:30 - 11:00 PM
CNMAT
1750 Arch Street, Berkeley, California 94709

Instructors: David Zicarelli, David Wessel, Richard Dudas,
Leslie Stuck, and Matt Wright

Course Fee: $250 due at the first class meeting. (Please make
your check payable to UC Regents.)

This intensive week of evening classes features instruction in
MAX/MSP programming by its developer David Zicarelli and a cast
of highly experienced MAX/MSP programmers. The course will focus
on developing MSP-based electroacoustic instrumentation in which
MAX provides flexible control and interactivity. A variety of
materials will be provided to course participants, including an
MSP manual and tutorial and machine readable copies of all the
programming examples provided in the course.

The combination of MAX and MSP brings unprecedented real-time
audio signal processing to the PowerPC. MSP provides a large
collection of digital audio objects that run in MAX with which to
build synthesizers, samplers, and effects processors. For more
information on MSP and how to obtain it, visit the Cycling74 web
site (http://www.cycling74.com/) and for MAX itself, visit the
OpCode web site (http://www.opcode.com/).
