Live Max/MSP/Jitter performance setup

Hello,

I’ve a question about utilizing Max/MSP/Jitter in a live situation.

I’ve recently seen videos of artists that have Ms. Pinky, Max/MSP, and Jitter in a single performance, where the turntables using Ms. Pinky are controlling video and/or sound, and other MIDI controllers are controlling the sound. I know that artists like Daito Manabe use two laptops, one for Max/Jitter and another for Max/MSP but to buy two laptops for this situation is very expensive.

Is it possible to project what you have going on with Jitter _fullscreen_ using a second monitor, and still be able to see your Max/MSP patch on the laptop screen? How would that be set up?

I want to have one monitor connected to a macbook pro with a jitter patch running fullscreen and project THAT monitor to a screen, and have my laptop screen free to see my Max/MSP patch.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, totally doable. Just drag your jit.window over to your 2nd monitor and tell it “fullscreen 1″. The real challenge is performance-tuning your patches so you can do everything you want to do.

You mean making the patches efficient so that I can run both things on the computer at the same time, right? I guess that’s why some artists use a laptop for video and another for audio. Thanks!

? You wrote the same thing twice, and Axiom-Crux wrote the same thing as well. Huh?

Fantastic! I never knew the Dan Winckler and Nicholas C. Rafitis III
were actually the same person. The cat’s out of the bag now ;]
