Flash & MaxMSP question

November 11, 2009 | 7:58 pm

Is it possible to say, have a flash button than connects to a feature in max…say a load buffer or a bang etc.

In short I want to use flash as a front end for max. I want to use flash objects to load samples, trigger them, mutilate them etc…
and possibly export them – all within a web browser.

Is this possible? Would it be possible to do on a busy website so you could have say 100 people in their own browser windows and projects working at a time?

Would their be an easier way to do this?

I am a novice programmer .. I’m just exploring what is possible.

It is possible using network messages. You can use the flash server object which implements this in Max.

This solution also requires
1) An ActionScript routine to send and receive the massages in your Flash file.
2) A server running Windows or OS X to run your patch in Max or a standalone build.

Hope this helps.
