I have been playing with deglitching the groove object and have something
that kind of works but doesn't all the time.  The basic simple idea is to
have a shaped mute justified with the splice point as determined by loop
synch output.

There mute is justified  with length speed and direction. The mute is an
inverted trapezoid with 5 ms ramps and a 20 ms off time. The 25 in the
"expr" determines how long before the loop splice (as determined by the
snapshot) the ramp will start. I 've played with this alot but cannot
optimize because there seems to be some weird beating going on between the
control and the sample rate. Using a MOTO 2408 set at 44.1KHz. Have tried
with 1 ms scheduler ticks but to no avail.

Many thanks to all the people who helped me with my ring modulation
problem. In fact, it was a case of dc offset, which I have now been able to
filter out.

Vive la liste!

Have you checked Scheduler in Audio Interrupt in the dsp menu? If it isn't
checked the max scheduler ("control rate") is not necessarily synchronized
to the audio clock.

Also, a 5ms ramp may be fast enough to cause its own audible artifacts.

Subject: loading new message boxes

hallo,

i need to make a small max patch that can automatically place message boxes
in the patcher with the "message to max" command (#P..). the message boxes
should have following content:
; voice 1;
; voice 2;
; voice 3;
...
they should be randomly spread over the patcher window and they need to
have the semicolons inside the message box in order to function as a send
object.

any suggestions??

thanks, michael

Subject: Max on MacAddict

Something for the shameless plug catagory:

One of my max multimedia pieces has been issued on this month's (April 99)
MacAddict CD. MacAddict is a
monthly mag/ cd combo:

TimeMachineMusic - Freeware
Otto Henry, muhenry@eastnet.educ.ecu.edu
This trippy, artsy, beautiful, and bizarre piece is an algorithmic
stand-alone multimedia entity that weaves
words taken from H.G. Wells1 3The Time Machine2 with photgraphic,
special-effects enhanced panoramic
landscapes and electronic music.  Groovy...

It is listed in the "kitchen Sink " folder!  You can also download it from
the mit hyperarchive as:

http://hyperarchive.lcs.mit.edu/HyperArchive/Archive/art/time-machine-music-11.hqx

(hope I got that right, have been having trouble lately!) Cheers, Otto
