Subject: Off Topic: My CD/IRCAM Mail

I'm sorry for this post.

I have recieved a number of price requests on shipping The Buzz More Crave
CD outside the US. Sadly a bunch of these questions could not be responded
to because the people had E-mail addresses at IRCAM. The price outside the
US is $15 in IMO or US currancy.

I tried to explain a week or two ago that I am unable to send any mail to
any address at "". I posted this point and got a lot of E-mail
including flames. This problem is not only with me but at least five other
people told me that they could not send anything to IRCAM's server.

It seems that some of the angry E-mail I got was from people within IRCAM
who couldn't understand the simple fact that their server was rejecting
E-mail from outside the server. I was criticized for bringing this issue up
here but as I can only receive mail from IRCAM and cannot send it this is
the only formum where people from IRCAM may infact read about this problem.

I'd like to repeat: IRCAM's server is rejecting mail with a responding
message of "go away", which is usually a sign that one's E-mail address has
been blacklisted. I tried E-mailing with ten other addresses and got the
same rejection.

All I wanted was to find out if I could fax credit card information to
renew my membership, instead I have been treated like a pariah and a
trouble maker. Please do not use IRCAM's server address if you wish to
address me because I cannot respond.

To IRCAM's staff: please correct your E-mail situation as it is affecting
users and people who are potental users.

Subject: Video and Max


I'm a student working on an interactive installation project in which I'd
like to include projected video and still images. I'm sorry to ask such a
broad question, but could some of you who have tried this give me some idea
of what's involved in incorporate visual stuff into Max? I'm especially
concerned about file size and compression issues.
Thanks for your help.

Hi there.  I'm new to the Max list and I was looking for some help for a
final project I'm working on.

I want to use the PowerGlove and MSP to create a "virtual" scratching
performance tool.  I'm a DJ using turntables and I want to create a
patch that gives me the same expressive control I have with a needle and

So far, I have come up with some stuff that kind of works.  I'm using
phasor~ to read wave~ and I mapped controller info from the glove to the
input of the phasor~ range.  One issue I have is that wave~ makes a
repeating waveform where I would rather just have a one shot type of

I'm doing it this way because it basically has the right sound I'm
looking for.  It's a type of "scrubbing" sound.  I checked out a patch
called "Scrubber" but, it doesn't really have the right sound.

I would be interested if anyone has some other ideas about how I could
do this.
Also, the response time of the Glove is a little slow.  Any tips on
tweaking that latency?

I would be happy to send my patch as text if someone would like to check
it out.

Thanks for the help.
