Drawing / Tracing Bezier Curves

Does anyone have an example for using the bezier curve formula in max msp.
Essentially I would like to recreate something like this for stylized waveforms.

Please believe I have searched for this extensively.

but I would like to be able to define all of the control points and be able to output values for ‘t’

I was able to figure out the bezier curve formula.
Here it is if anyone is interested.

Its just the formula to calculate the interpolation between a start and end point with two control points.

Thanks doldrum! That can be used as an easing equation, very nice!
