Max Msp Uncompressed Audio over wireless network.

June 12, 2009 | 1:31 pm

Hi there I was just wondering is it possible to send audio from one maxmsp patch on one computer to another max msp patch on another over a wireless network?

If so what objects are there out there that lets me do such a thing?

Many thanks.

not sure, but look into

jit.catch~ / jit.release~ (to convert audio signal into matrices)
jit.net.send / jit.net.recv (for TCP/IP, don’t know if this will work with your wireless setup, but it’s matrix-ready)
otherwise, udpsend / udpreceive, but you’d need to convert the matrices (or the audio itself) to packets that work with udp.

Get the jit.catch~ working and try jit.net.send first. Curious to hear if you get it going, and what kind of latency or bandwidth issues you run into.

Has anyone got this scheme working?

Zach Poff made this some years ago. He makes some fun patches:

The thing is a total bandwidth hog. I can send streaming or live video all day long and it comes through as a light lunch. Max Msp and gen~ could really do with some cool audio compressor tools for peer to peer, non server based audio compression. Anyone?
