max and reaktor plus lcd object info

April 16, 2007 | 8:15 pm

Hello there guys,

Im about to start going through the max tutorials and
was ondering if there is a way i can use reaktor for
doing midi stiff (just using a simple keyboard)
instead of some hardware. I dont have any midi
compatible keyboards or instruments left and id really
like to avoid buying one if possible..

AND AN LCD OBJECT QUERY

I’m experimenting with the lcd object and would like
to try getting it to draw stuff in response to an
audio file (im thinking this will have to be via
amplitude) as oppose to my mouse providing the
commands

any help would be much appreciated guys.

thanks, Morgan Quaintance

You can use reaktor, using the udpsend and udpreceive objects.
However, there are plenty of ways to use midi (keyboard slider, note
slider, any slider really, notein, makenote, etc) with using a midi
keyboard. At the moment, I’m hard pressed to see why you’d control
Max from Reaktor… usually the other way around is better. If you
want to use Reaktor’s Qwerty Midi, you should searce the list… lots
of examples of connecting the two programs… or do it in max. Good
learning experience.

About LCD, here’s something really basic. Check out the help file and
the reference on LCD. Copy and paste this into an empty patcher.

Thanks,
Keith

Actually Reaktor has a lot of nice sequencer interfaces that
would be great for controlling max. No sense in rebuilding
it in Max if you already have something that does it.

that’s true, but just for a keyboard?

Hey keith,

Yeah, i meant controling reaktor via max. I just
wanted to use a keyboard in max for the tutorials as
opposed to an external hardware keyboard that i dont
have. Im gonna give the udp send and recieve objects a
try today.

also upload the patch.

thanks for your help.
