MaxMsp > Syphon > QC ?

Hi guys, wondering if anyone could shed some light on how to get visual data from maxmsp to quartz composer using syphon. (or any other method that would work in much the same way).

I have build a gestural controlled granular synthesiser in maxmsp and I’m using quartz as a visual controller to flick switches etc, but i would like to get the waveform display to be part of the quartz app

This video shows an example what I’m trying to achieve,

Hey, sorry, I never got round to replying to your Youtube comment.

It’s really simple to get images into QC from Max, all you do is to send your jitter stuff into the [jit.gl.syphonserver] object (which you can download in the plugin section here: http://syphon.v002.info/). Then you download the QC plugin for receiving the images. Look at the videos on the syphon website, its pretty well explained.

As for creating the waveform, I used the patches people posted here:

Once you get the waveform into QC, you can display it however you like, change the colours etc.

Hope this helps.

Iyad.

Im having trouble with the jitter aspects of this, (total jitter noob) how do you create a matrix or texture object thats able to receive the information from the waveform?

as I’m aware the syphon server only receives information form these two objects,

using the patches that were available in the link that you provided i was able to get the waveform to be displayed in the jit window,
and using the help files on syphon server managed to get the input to quartz composer.

Thanks in advance!

Thats where my knowledge runs dry, sorry! I’m also a complete Jitter noob! One day i’ll get round to learning what a matrix actually is, and how to create textures etc.

Best of luck on your project.
