I have a usb midi controller, and I would like to know whether it is possible – with max/msp – to use this controller to control aspects in (3rd party) graphical software, like sliders.
Most probably a silly question, but I’m a complete layman :)
Thanks in advance!

i dont know of any way to control Photoshop via max, and i doubt this would be feasible. however there are other applications like Apple’s Motion which has some MIDI controllable parameters.
or you could write your graphic functions into a jitter patch, and control those via your USB device.

You can do that,

I imagine it’s possible, although you probably would have to write a Photoshop plugin to pull it off. That alone means that it is probably none too practical.
With Max/MSP you can acquire and manipulate all sorts of data, from MIDI, graphics tablets, usb joysticks and the like. Once you have the numbers inside of Max, you can do all sorts of things with them, and send them out in a variety of ways. The weak link in the scenario you propose is getting the data into Photoshop.

There are different ways to control other applications through Max/MSP,
All the best,

However, I’d recommend “rolling your own” graphics etc. mini-app within Max and Jitter. Then you can see the results quite readily and do whatever you want. You can always use the powerful GUI and features of Photoshop to tweak your images; however, for real-time control over this stuff Max is the way to go. (If you’re a natural tweaker and fiddler, you may get hooked… just a warning ;-)
