Hi
I have done this. What i did was build a DTMF decoder to serial interface
with a Basic Stamp microprocessor and a bunch of 556 chips w various other
parts. There are seven channels each tuned to one of the frequencys
generated by the DTMF phone systems. The micro procssor looks for the
low/hi outputs from the tone decoders and in in real time sends the info to
the Mac serially.

I use the serial object in Max to receive the messages.

Since I built that box, I have found that there are several DTMF transeiver
chips around that can be interfaced to Max via the Basic Stamp.

With a Basic Stamp 2 you can format those tones as MIDI messages and skip
the us of the serial port.

www.parallax.com

has info on the Basic Stamp and a DTMF transeiver chip kit. You can also
find purchasing info there.


Go crazy man... just remmeber that it is basically ilegal to mess with the
phone lines....research all aspects of this circuit before you hook it up!!

I'm sure you can build some kinda cool MSP patch to do all of this as
well...you can also use the serial object to read the modem commands .


Hope this helps.

Cheers,

ken

Remember which one I'm talking about?

We should all learn Esperanto.
I've tried to convince my friends this for years.

Just a quick note.

There already is a Matrix6 editor which is part of the Galaxy Plus editors
from Opcode. Although this is now unavailable due to Opcode
being screwed over by Gibson (Galaxy was pretty old and in need of updating, but
still....) You may be able to find it on theused market if you
just need one copy for yourself.

Good luck,
Nev.

Subject: disk defragmentation and authorization

hi list,

I have a question concerning the compatibility of disk defragmentation and
the disk authorization. I'm using a Powerbook G3 running OS 8.1 and would
like to defragment my hard disk. Now I am a bit worried about ruining the
Max/MSP authorization by doing this. Is there anything I should take care
of?

Regards

Joerg

I wonder what it was like if I had started learning MAX at the age of 1 or
2 and used it every single day till today...

man, could I write patches!

Subject: lloopp

hi all,
as time passes, i decided to once again present "LLOOPP" to
this lovely list:

http://loopool.live.fm

lloopp is a live-tool for improvising with max/msp(play) and

is currently used by quite a few musicians touring with
their powerbooks.
the modular approach allows individual setups for any
musician and is the basis for endless developement.
lloopp is definitely open to any max-programmer to build
his/her own plugins or remote controllers, or modify
existing patches, so it lives as open-source idea.
some patches written by other max-programmers are already
part of the release.
there is the possibility of "msp-plugins" implemented, that
works paralell to the use of vst-plugins. any
signal-processing patch can be easily plugged in to the
enviroment (as it is done in this release with well known
patches like "forbidden planet" or "cross-dog").
the heart of the patch is crossing the discussion about
crossfading loops with play~ and i bet there are better
solutions to the topic, than the one that is used here now.
so, thats it, i am curious if there will be any feedback to
this from the list...

cheers
klaus filip

MSP does not support ASIO 2 features, but I don't think an ASIO 2
driver will fail in an ASIO 1 host, although I've never had the
occasion to test that assumption.
