Proably dead simple but stuck and performance tmrrow ( clocker issue)

August 19, 2010 | 7:23 pm

Hey,

I’m new to Max /Msp but managed it to make sort of what i want, but now im a little bit stuck on a quite easy
thing, or at least i guess it is.

What I’m trying to do is with the clocker component make a timer that toggles one box on for 5 minutes, toggles it off and toggles another one for 5 minutes, then toggle a third one on and the second of and then back the first one.

I thought it was gonna be dead easy but I just cant get my head around it. And it’s gonna be used in a performance tmrrow morning …

Would be incredibly greatful if anyone could give me a hint!

Some kind of test for a given time or duration followed by [counter] and [select] ??

You might find the [decode ] object useful:

hey, never knew about [decode]. Looks like a nice way to do some solo/mute functions on multiple channels. However it only remembers one "on" outlet at a time, so if you want full functionality you’d probably use [matrixctrl] for muting/soloing. Still, the hierarchical nature of it is very handy…
