max/msp + flash to make a piano roll?

so ive heard you can sort of combine max/msp plus flash, i was wondering if with the actionscript i can somehow make a piano roll, basically just use 2 for loops to make a piano roll grid, then make it so you can click stuff in, and then have a long thin line that scrolls across and has collision detection for each note, and plays the proper pitch for it.

you certainly could, but when you consider the relative ease of [live.step] and/or [matrixctrl] you might want to stick with Max. No collision detection needed, it’s all in the column outputs.

Soon, I hear, there will be a new GUI for [detonate] which will give you a modern piano-roll option right in Max. Very much looking forward to that one…

Yes,that would be great, if it’s true.

I assume you need M4L to use live.step?

its in 514

You mean live.step is native to Max 5.1.4? Looks like I only have 5.0.8. Time for an update!

Yes live.* objects are native objects since 5.1.x, and comes for free, wether you own Max for Live or not.

Have fun!
