I was wondering if there is a way to send statistical data into max from another program to control parameters. For example, is there a way to input data to create an equation as a stochastic control, in order to help choose pitch data, without physically typing in the data? In simpler terms is there support to send non-midi data into max?
You can send data via. OSC, I’ve been using Max with a Kinect recently, and as long as you know the port you are receiving the data from, you can use [udpreceive 8000] (8000 being the port number), and then use the route object to filter through messages.
Hope this is what you’re after?
you can also receive data from the serial port using the the
[serial] object. I also developed a set of objects that will you let communicate with the world using UDP or TCP (the difference between these objects and the built-in ones is that they don’t use OSC). In a worst-case scenario (that is, if your data source can’t send data through the network or the serial port), you could save your data to a file in the disk (in a text-based format if possible) and then read that file from Max.
