A couple general questions about performance

Ahoy all. Pretty new to max, and my first sizable patch is getting pretty choppy. It starts off great, but as I use it it gets laggy fast. The macbook pro I’m using is almost brand new, and activity monitor doesn’t show much of a strain at all on the CPU or memory. I just [...]

Stuck mira frame

I posted a couple weeks ago about Mira crashing whenever fpic tried to load an image over about 100 kb. I didn’t get any response to that, but am working around it for now. I just had another problem happen several times and wonder if anyone has experienced this:
At times, a mira frame will stay [...]

the glorious/dreaded "lock to control surface" function

I was wondering everyones thoughts on using max msp or m4l to create a function where you could midi map the “lock to control surface” to a device instead of right clicking and selecting it.
This would be very useful for APC40 users who don’t neccesarily appreciate the way that Ableton behaves when a user selects [...]

Using Patcher as a help patch without the name patcher etc

I’m looking to use the patcher object to create a help patch without the name ‘patcher’. I did this a couple of years ago and I have forgotten how to since :( Any ideas on how to access the help patch but under a different name such as ‘help’ instead of ‘patcher’?
Thanks, Steve

Calculating forces to make phys bodies follow a Jit.path

Hi, as the title suggests I am trying to make phys.bodies loosely follow a path by calculating forces on them in relation to a path. I think what I am trying to do is similar to Day 6 of the physics patch-a-day.
In this patch I can see that a position and a path matrix [...]

MAX/MSP rewire with Logic Pro X

I am trying to record some MIDI in Logic using MAX/MSP to create it. I have no problem connecting Logic and Max, the signal comes into Logic and I can see it through different instruments. But when I am trying to record it, I can’t and I don’t know why.

Description doesn't seem to get copied

Trying to redesign some stuff and building it with Max 6. I noted that if I option-copy an object, the description from the original object doesn’t get copied. Is this a known issue?

how to [gate] a matrix?

i´d like to replace some of my older jitter “gates” abstractions with my regular messages gates abstractions, which means i am packing the incoming matrix with e.g. [prepend video] and then use different objects such as [gate] or [route] to switch output or to switch between different inputs to the abstraction, as opposed to utilizing [...]

'Spectral Blurring' – Live?

I recently came across ‘Play Blur’ by Jean-francois Charles.
Since the way it works is to record audio into a buffer and then manipulate it that way, I want to use it in a realtime setting. How would I do this? I’m a Max/MSP newbie. :)

Jitter – Keep movies playing when not viewed

I created patch where I can use a MIDI keyboard to cut between twelve different videos; however, every time I hit a note, each video starts back at the beginning instead of where I left off. Does anyone know if there’s a way I can keep all 12 videos playing in the background when they’re [...]

continuous slider from random start points – Leap motion

I’m using the Leap Motion to control some sliders. When I put my hand over the sensor it jumps to that value, say I’m halfway up it starts at 50 and at the highest point is 127. When I remove my hand it stays where it is left off, which good, but when I put [...]

Multiple send~ delay?

Lovely mates of the nerdland,
When there are multiple send~ receive~ pairs in a dsp chain, introduced delay is multiplied by the number of pairs?
I could test this, but rather choose to enjoy a quicker answer!

Right to left order

What is used to decide the right-to-left order? The destination module’s left position? Or the position of the cable inlet?

I want to create a world with balls rebounding on the walls.
I tried to make a phys.body on a wall to create this “rebound” effect, and a ball. Whenever the camera is behind a this wall, [...]

Sync metro to Live

I thought i had figured this out, but apparenty my metro is not synced at all. I currently use it with these arguments: metro 16n @active 1
But that doesnt seem to guarantee it will run exactly in sync (even when i reset Live’s transport to the beginning and start it from there).
How do i set [...]

Syncing phasor~, 2d.wave~, function ALL to Ableton

Does anybody have a better method to setting the domain of a function object to the length in milliseconds it takes for a phasor to go from 0. to 1. ? I’ve been using the timer object but have found for some reason it produces terribly out of synch results.
What I’m trying to do is [...]
