OK, I have placed the following files in the same directory as my MAX patch
which uses the Bomb object:

cmap-data
flame-data
seq-data
suck-dir
title.tif

The only time I get colour in BOMB is on colour pallet 4 whcih gives me
Heat - lot of nice yellow/red and orange and in Noise (7).  Everything else
is Mono.
So perhaps I have placed the wrong data in the wrong place.  The directory
in which my Bomb Test folder is sitting is in the MAX file preferences
selections and works for other things.  What have I done wrong

Cheers,

Garth

oh, yes.  my understanding is that there was a transition from Steve
Ellison's (amazing!!!...look ma, it's Max) code to (McCartney's) BeOS
native stuff.  Mr. Zvonar would of course be the maxlist arbiter of any
LCS lore...all else is mere heresay.

Hello...

and sorry if this has already been discussed:

Is MSP supporting the MOTU 2408 interface?
Is anyone using it?

Greetings, Joachim

Subject: MSPMatriXXXXXXXX

I'm quite surprised that in the discussion about audio matrix, no one
mentionned any solution to create real time input/output matricing within
MSP.
I miss it.
Is there something like this already existing ?

I'm also looking for some kind of file recorder easy use interface in MSP
that would alow me to plug patches to for my work and particularly for my
students without recreating the thing each time.

Thank you.
Roland Cahen

ALSO QUESTIOn

HI

Question about drawing in table to be read into buffer.
I tried this patch below, and added my own variant
using multislider instead
of table, as seen in Forbidden Planet example, but
doesnt quite render the
same shape as it appears to draw, any ideas??
 thanks Jim

I am very pleased to be able to announce that after many strange days, The
Brain People's new release: The Buzz More Crave CD is available.  Though it
may not be your cup of tea, I wanted to share my labor of love with you.

If you have the inclination please at least stop by and see what sometimes
passes for art these days.

I was waiting to see if Gary would reply to this himself. He may still
do... he used to participate quite actively on this list.

The basic problem is, of course, that Gary's work was done in the days
when all Macs were 68k machines. So his objects don't have any PPC code.
Which means they'll only run with 68k Max (which, by the way, is often an
option even if you're running on a PowerMac...)

To judge by some remarks Gary made a while back, I don't think he's
actively developing Max software nowadays. He is director of Oberlin's
TIMARA project, which may well be keeping him busy enough... I don't
really know how he found time to do software development and compose and
write grant proposals for TIMARA and run the center and teach (both
during semester and summer courses) and do whatever else he was doing,
anyway.

Didn't Gary distribute source code for his objects? I have a vague
recollection that I saw the source once upon a time. Which would mean
that some kind, resourceful soul could build the projects as PPC objects.
Actually, this is something I've been wanting to do myself for quite a
while (as well as turning the Litter patchers into externals), but any
realistic appraisal of my own time commitments sez: no way I'm gonna get
to this.

Speaking of Litter: you can do all sorts of fun random stuff using them.
Since they're Patchers using only standard Max objects, they run quite
happily on PPC Max. (But watch out: there is a version running around
using Gary's random objects instead of the standard random. This modified
version will, of course, not run on PPC).

Cheers,

Peter
