MAX patch search…

Hello forum users,

Where is a good source of MAX/MSP & Jitter patches. I want to see what people out there are creating!

NRB.

to sum up f.e’s sentiment: the line is still blurry between DIY
software and the art it produces. would dj tanner be dj tanner if he
let loose his personal patches?

maybe (horror of horrors.) creating the program IS the art. (shoot
me) or maybe you can still maintain your rockstar status

That being said. I, personally would find it helpful if there was a
more open atmosphere with the more generic patches/abstractions. its
not giving up your artistic soul to let your ascii2bitmap abstraction
fly.

no, it’s not the question, not quite

my feeling (as f.e. pointed it) is that each patch is a piece, or
rather than each new pieces needs a new patch – the patch is NOT the
piece (and not the art itself) but i see it as the instrument: some
of the ancient (read “classical”) music can beplayed on “any”
instrument (think bach pieces) – today it’s kind of hard to imagine
to play most of the modern music on a different instrument than the
one it was written for (cage’s Ryoanji on piano?? the trumpet
sequenza on cello ??? – ok, I play the varese’s Density on Fuzz el.
bass, but…)

so it’s not about not willing to show/give the patches (I often did
patches for friends) but when asked for a “generic” patch i don’t
have such a thing…. even if I had a “generic” effect configuration
on my pre-max bass days….

_________

as for people playing my music (made in maxMSP) yes, i have a few
pieces now being played by other musicians – I gave them the patches
- just like when i write a piece for an Octobass (sub-bass) I give
the instrument to the bass player

not about the rock star status – more about a new way of thinking the
music itself

sorry for the OT

best
