IRCAM Real-Time Applications team releases FTM 1.0

FTM is a shared library for Max/MSP providing a small and simple real-time object system and optimized services to be used within Max/MSP externals.

FTM = data structures

  • visualization/editors
  • file import/export (SDIF, MIDI, …)
  • operators (expressions and externals)

The basic idea of FTM is to extend the data types exchanged between the objects in a Max/MSP patch by complex data structures such as sequences, matrices, dictionaries, break point functions, tuples and whatever might seem helpful for the processing of music, sound and motion capture data.
