playing sound files

January 20, 2006 | 1:50 pm

Hi, im new to max/msp and am creating an installation using a sensor and miditron to trigger a sound file on my computer. But I have no idea how to do it despite my searching. I pressume I have to write a patch to recognise the midi input and then play the file but I don’t have a clue! If anyone could help me I would be more than greatful. Thanks, John.

Once you get the buffer~ and groove~ objects going, it’s a snap to have a MIDI note-in or controller-in start/stop the playback of whatever file you’ve loaded. These objects are a *little* tricky, so the Helpfiles will need to be read about 5 times.

The problem is that you won’t want to stop there….. you’ll think of all kinds of other things for your MIDITRON to do!

Remember to get some sleep eventually too… ;)
