Reading MMC from Digital Performer into Max


Can anyone point me in the right direction (even previous posts) that deal with reading MMC from Digital Performer into Max? Is rtin part of the equation? I need to read SMPTE time code, start, stop, play enable, most anything that MMC sends out of DP.

Thanks for you help!!

The excellent tutorials from Peter Elsea may be helpful

In particular, MMC and MTC are in the “advancedMax” folder.

Not sure you can send MMC from DP. But you can send MTC and beat clocks (see DP’s transmit sync prefs)
Here is a patch with some of the features (maybe adapted years ago from Peter Elsea, I can’t remember…)

Thanks for the help. I was able to get this working using part of the patch you posted!

So grateful for everyone’s help.
