It's probably not the only float-compatible funnel-like object out there,
but nonetheless, you might try my "listfunnel" object which can be found at:
http://www.cnmat.berkeley.edu/~dudas/max

listfunnel iterates a list and indexes the elements on output. kind of like
unpack+funnel, but it also accepts floats. very handy for dumping the
output of multislider into a coll or buffer~.

Subject: Max/MSP & POWER

Dear Uncle Max,
Just to add my two cents worth.
I have a 8500/132 and just installed a Sonnet Crescendo G3 PCI card that
knockeed my speed up to 300, well actually my machine says it's running at
306. The bottom line is that all is well in both synthesis and editing
areas of computing.

Do not fear the cheap way to more power.

Speaking of the cheap way to more power... I recently changed 1 tiny
jumper on my G3/233 and now it is a G3/300! It is running like a charm at
48 degrees C. MSP and my 2408 are running really smoothly with this combo
as well, and I noticed the extra CPU power right away. Anyone else try
this and/or know of any potential harm that could be comming my way
because of it?

Cheers,

Chris

the amiga-thing sounded familiar to me and i needed a maybe similar
approach to build a scrambler with msp.
the patch below just gives the basic idea of peeking (many) values in a
buffer
for simultaniously reading it out in a loop to control a
sample-playback-patch.
could be, this helps....

From:Jeff Brown <jeffb@AMNH.ORG>
Subject: Max via text; TCP/IP

Hi guys. I have three questions:First, is there a way to program in
Max via text--i.e., standard C or C++? Second, if there is, what's a
good (free, if possible!) set of programming tools (all I need is a
compiler and a text editor with syntax highlighting) that I could use
for it? Third, is there a way I could get a program running on a Unix
machine to speak to Max over a TCP/IP connection? I'm new to the Mac
world, and know nothing.

Thanks.

--Jeff

Well, 48=B0 C. is sorta warm.

I've been told that a hot computer means shorter life spans for
components. OTOH, my old Plus (fanless, thanks to Steve J.) got pretty
warm and never gave me any trouble (I ran it daily from when I upgraded
my Fat Mac, in early '86, to when I finally sold it some time around
89/90). So don't listen to me, listen to someone who understands hardware.

But... where's the tiny jumper. If the gurus approve the procedure, I'd
like to see how my 266 responds...


Cheers,

Peter
