Number lists, data column reading?

September 1, 2010 | 4:19 pm

Hey everyone, apologies ahead of time for how vague this may be but I have a small problem I’m trying to tackle and the way I do it is not set and open to (your) suggestions.
I have a series of numbers (in columns) and am wondering how I might list those in max and use them to generate notes probably from a makenote object….
Basically is there a way to list a column of different numbers and scroll through them easily via bang or metro? The sorts of numbers I have are like 4664.89, 4778.89, 6657.98 etc

Please let me know if anyone has any ideas.
Thanks guys
Jay

Sorry to bump this back up but I’m pretty stuck – tried a number of things but not clear… any one have any suggestions?

you could use [tab] and make it into a column? one each for pitch, velocity, duration, whatever you’re using. [jit.cellblock] is another option, possibly better for lists in columns, but maybe you don’t have jitter.

You probably want to use jit.cellblock. You can do so without owning Jitter

ah forgot that you get jit.cellblock with regular Max :)
