Subject: CDROM audio level control FOUND, THANKS!

I know have a CD object that will control the audio output level of a CDROM
drive. Many thanks to all who responded and especially to Garth Paine and
the folks at the cycling '74 site. If anyone else is in need the update is

Subject: challenge response

i remember recently seeing a post or two about the new challenge/response
authorisation for MAX. where do i get this? i couldn't find anything about
it on the opcode site. can i do it on my existing (MAX 3.5.9) or do i have
to upgrade or something?

question 2... is anybody using midiTjet with MAX? i'd be into hearing any
experiences and/or tips on this.

cheers all

I DL's the challenge/response version of Max 3.5.9-9 from their web
site a few weeks ago. Go to <http://www.opcode.com/dl/> and click on
the "Max" folder on the left.

Hi David, Hans and friends

I noticed the loss-of-relative-position thing when you "clip" the faders
but, well, it was just a quick fix;-)

David - I like your mouse-like behaviour idea for the master fader. I've
added something similar to my version. Works reliably, but less elegant (a
separate "jump to..." control).

For what it's worth, here's a version that keeps the relative values.

Subject: passing away of a teacher of electronic and world music

This afternoon, one of the most remarkable teachers in the arts, passed
away. Don Funes most recently developed a new program (to teach arts to
future educators who are not themselves artists) at Cal State at San
Marcos, near San Diego. He had previously served as Provost at the Northern
Illinois University Music School, and professor at the Crane School of
Music at SUNY Potsdam, where I was his student many years ago. Don
influenced many musicians and artists and was known for his integration of
electronic music and world musics into the curriculum. Don was responsible
for commissioning a new of works by people like John Cage, David Behrman,
Alvin Lucier, and was a composer and performer in his own right. In the
last decade, he was a champion of South American music, which he himself
played. He was also a student of the Indian flute. I recently visited Don
and his family, as he struggled with enormous grace with cancer at age 60,
always hoping for a miracle cure, but accepting that his experience was
just another experience in the mystery that is life.


http://www.rpi.edu/~gluckr/home.html

"Musical comunication (warmth, understanding, revelation) must be valid. I
wish there were a better word for communication; I mean by it the
tenderness we feel when we recognize and share with another human being a
deep, unnameable, elusive emotional shape or shade. This is what a composer
is saying in his (sic) music: has this every happened to you? Haven't you
experienced this same tone, insight, shock, anxiety, release? And when you
reset (to "life") a piece of music, you are simply replying to the
composer, 'yes.'"(Leonard Bernstein)
