Announcement: Litter Starter Pack/UB Released

February 21, 2008 | 5:23 pm

The subject: header hopefully got your attention. A number of people have been asking.

Full information at < http://www.bek.no/~pcastine/Press/>.

If your first question is "What’s Litter Power?", the short answer is great noise sound sources, incredibly powerful random number generators, with superb utilities to round up the package. All the details you could possibly want are at the web site listed below.

An excerpt from the announcement text:

Berlin, 21 February 2008–4-15 Music & Technology today announced the release of a free Starter Pack/UB edition of its outstanding collection of external objects for Max/MSP, Litter Power. Litter Power is a collection of external objects expanding the capabilities of the Max/MSP audio programming environment.

This new release brings the benefits of Universal Binary-compatibility to those using Max/MSP 4.6 and wishing to make use of the enhanced functionality provided by the Litter Power Starter Pack. UB- compatibility was previously a feature only available in the Pro Bundle edition of Litter Power. In addition, the new Starter Pack version, 1.7, brings new noise sources (lp.feta~, enhanced lp.pfff~ and lp.phhh~) , an easy-to-use cross-synthesis engine (lp.emeric~), and implementations of important list-scrambling algorithms that have been orphaned by the original developers (lp.crabelms and lp.ale, for scramble and alea respectively). Numerous additional enhancements are detailed in the downloadable archive available at http://www.bek.no/~pcastine/Litter/.

"The new and enhanced Litter Power objects provide significant new sources of sonic material, as well as providing reliable and robust tools for creating ambient and aleatoric music," states Peter Castine, director of development for the Litter Power Package. "We are delighted to make these new features available to the wider Max/MSP community."

Since I’ve been asked offline, I thought I’d mention that an updated Windows Starter Pack will be available in the next few days.

The need is quite not as pressing, because Windows users have been able to continue using the existing Starter Pack. However, there are some nice new features to look forward to.

Best — Peter

In the Mac distribution, the ‘Overview’ patch throws an error when
opening examples. Add the ‘.mxb’ file extension to the ‘lp.doom’
object in the ~Lib directory and it will be fixed. No need for this
directory to be cluttering your Extras menu–just put it somewhere in
a search path.

Thanks for making this available Peter.
