I have written a Granular synthesis patch and a control program for FTS in
1994. It works with 12 voices in realtime. The control program is works with
gestures (written in NeXTStep Obj C) and plugs into the MAX/FTS interface.
I'm planning to port the GS part to MSP very soon. Anyone interrested for
MAX/FTS version, please contact me.

Subject: Direct I/O AM2 MSP Audiodriver

In my 'quest' to obtain realtime digital  in from my 7100/80 (with a Newer
upgrade card) I have been trying an old AM11 card.
The MSP manual only talks about the 2 analog channels, in and out, on the
I've been unable to access the digital input with the driver.
Is this possible? How is this done?
Best Regards,

Concert Annoncement

=46riday, November 13, 1998
Hochschule f=FCr Musik Detmold, Abteilung M=FCnster
Concert Hall


Works for live electronics by German composer Dieter Schnebel

Pan for flute - new version for flute and live electronics
Lamento di Guerra for mezzo-soprano and synthesizer
Zwei Studien for piano and live electronics
Languido for bass flute and live electronics

Carin Levine, flute
Annette Kleine, mezzo-sopran
Jennifer Hymer, piano and synthesizer
Georg Hajdu, electronics

Dieter Schnebel (*1930) succeeded Luigi Nono as director of the
Heinrich-Strobel foundation's Freiburg Experimental Studio.

The electronic setup of Zwei Studien, dating from 1988, was reprogrammed
entirely in MAX/MSP forgoing the bulky and expensive machinery employed in
its premiere.

The MAX patch makes use of the vst~ plug-in object for some of the
real-time effects. Using a Magma PCI expansion system and an appropriate
sound card, the whole thing could even run on a Powerbook, which for its
portability is indeed a huge step towards the "conquest" of the classical
concert venues that have traditionally been reluctant to feature electronic

to Dieter Schnebel is available at:
