List operations for _big_ lists in max …

April 29, 2010 | 1:17 pm


I am loking for max objects/ methods to analyze and manipulate _big_ lists in max.

I have looked at the RTC objects, but they don’t seem suffiscient in what I try to do:

I want to make a charicature of a recorded melody that is played by the y axis of the mouse.

I have recorded the mouse data stream into a list, and now I want to look through a list and when I see certain number changes in the data stream, I want to add/subtract to a section of the numbers in the list where the number changes occur …

Anyone, who has good experience working with big lists in max?

Thanks ahead!

what do u mean by big lists, how big?

since max 5, zl objects can now handle lists longer than 256 elements if you provide an additional argument.
otherwise, u might want to check out the L objects library.

Hi again,

I think what I really need to do is for example to see the list data in a multislider and do some sort of pattern analysis on the data in the multislider …

Is there anyone who has dealt with pattern recognition in max?

The [maxlispj] object can handle large lists, and it can do all the LISP-ey stuff that’s been done for years and years, although you will need to learn LISP to make best use of it.
