max patch on iphone?

December 12, 2008 | 8:58 am

hello everybody!
probably it’s a stupid question…
but it would be so fantastic if it could work: is there any way to run a max patch on an iphone? i don’t mean to control a max patch on a computer using an iphone, i know how that works… what i mean is to run (install) a max patch on an iphone – alike an iphone application!
thanks!

with os x installed you can run a max application, too.

wow, this looks great, but has anyone actually tested it? seems like you can run *many* programs, but the iPhone doesn’t have a complete osX, does it?

Think: max patches on sale in the Apple Store!!

i was thinking about that… imagine how many possibilties for max programmers all over the world. max would be the perfect tool to create such small and interesting gimmicks for the iphone…

@cycling: would be perfect if you could create a "make iphone application", same as "build collective"… ;)

Hi,

you should check :

(it loads pd patches without GUI but makes use of accelerometer datas and touch actions)

I know—think about when you see little "drum machine" apps, video or audio mixers, MIDI players, etc… all made with code-based languages… how much easier to just do these in Max!

Hopefully they wouldn’t have to, if the OSX actually runs enough to support patches, or even basic ones. I wonder how this will play out, it would really be quite something to explore. That one can utilize Pd (or a simplified version of it) is great news though.

so has anyone does this, it seems too easy to be true,

i havn’t tried it myself, as i’m still sceptical,

The iPhone doesn’t "operate OS X" per se – that’s a very strange term to use IMO.

However, there are plenty of OSC apps available for the iPhone – so even if you can’t run a patch "on the phone" you can surely control one FROM the phone.

If you’re primarily interested in audio, check out Jasuto (Pro) for the iPhone – it’s kinda Max-like – maybe more like Turbosynth from back in the day but much cooler.

@earsmack

i currently use an OSC app which is awesome,

Jasuto looks cool though, ill check that out,

thanks alot mate!

cant do max on the app store as it would violate their clause in the use policy that prohibits interpreted code. ;(.
