Subject: David: will MAX be updated for G4?

I'm surprised noone has asked this yet...

Are there plans to update MAX/MSP to take advantage of the
G4 Velocity Engine?

(formerly known as Altivec, aka 128 bit vector instruction set)

such an update should vastly improve DSP power in MSP(?)

Subject: Changing number boxes

Dear List:

For a small step sequencer that I'm working on
I need a 'number box' to output the number only
when it's banged, and never when it's changed.


I came up with a solution:

max v2;
#N vpatcher 51 40 310 336;
#P toggle 26 113 15 0;
#P button 26 65 15 0;
#P newex 26 85 40 196617 uzi 2;
#P number 26 154 35 9 0 0 0 3;
#P number 113 113 35 9 0 0 0 3;
#P newex 26 132 97 196617 igate;
#P comment 6 47 100 196617 only with a bang;
#P comment 123 85 92 196617 not while changing the box;
#P comment 20 173 93 196617 a number should come out here;
#P connect 7 0 6 0;
#P connect 6 0 8 0;
#P connect 8 0 3 0;
#P connect 3 0 5 0;
#P fasten 6 0 4 0 31 108 118 108;
#P connect 4 0 3 1;
#P pop;

but I'm wondering if anybody has other, cooler and more
efficient, ways to do this.

The step sequencer runs with a 'tempo' object, but the
final tempo seems to be very different than the one typed.

a smaller (21k) version collective can be found at:

http://home.earthlink.net/~leaddaet/max/smallsteps.sit

It's running on an 8600/300, overdrive on...

Any ideas on how to make it run at a predictable tempo ?

thanks in advance,

Eloy

Subject: V1?

earlier this year i seem to remember there was a post from someone who had
knowledge of using Max to control a Doremi Labs V1, or at least knew how
to. it involved use of the serial object i believe.

whoever you are, i would be very grateful if you could drop me a line. i
can't find the original message and i'm going to have to deal with one of
these machines in the next few days.

thanks

Subject: pgmout


hi

its interesting to hear that other people have had pgmout blues. thanks for
your responses. my problem was that pgmout worked absolutely fine as long
as nothing else was happening but as soon as i tried it while playing a seq
all hell would break loose.

FWIW my sloution was this.... when a prog number gets sent to pgmout delay
it for 10 or 20ms, while this is happening quickly stop everything else.
let the prog change happen on its own, then bang everything to set it going
again. obviously there is a slightly noticeable gap here but for the
current installation i'm making its not really a problem.
