RTC-lib (Realtime Composition Library) for Max5 – just released
Today I released a new version of my RTC-lib (Realtime Composition Library) – a versatile toolbox for algorithmic composition in realtime which I am developing since 1993. This version is optimized for Max5 and includes completely new help files and many improvements.

Amazing news! Studying the RTC-lib files and the other works on your web site is what roped me in to using max after I was first introduced to the software at university. Also I think your "Sequitur" series is stunning, thank you Karlheinz.
more great work karlheinz :)
many thanks for sharing.
..but i’m on windows OS…any version planned for the new 5.0?
I just posted an experimental Windows XP version of RTC-lib 5.0 to:
where I exchanged the view remaining externals by their Windows equivalents. As I am not working on a PC I have no chance to test it myself – so please use it with care.
Awesome, thanks Karl for all your hard work!
Could some nice soul please tell me whether the Windows version of RTC-lib works?
Thanks and cheers,
trying the windows release (max novice here) on windows xp sp3 unzipping the files reports password locked directories. eg unable to get the RTC-overview.
nothing in the unzipped directory if i choose skip.
a bit later
I tried copying directly from the zip into max-startup (which was read only, ’til I changed). nothing showed, but…
… using the browser, i did find a copy of the overview. maybe something to do with the max-startup directory,?
not sure what to expect from mac sourced zip.
I just posted a (hopefully) Windows compatible ZIP archive with the Windows version of the RTC-lib 5.0 to:
Please check again!
Thanks for your patience,
I am still getting error when it unzips, it complains about invalid
the most recent zip only reported a problem with the help file in "put content into max startup’, requiring a password.
I think the same file is in ‘put content into patchesRTC-libRTC-lib Help Help-Screens’. file is RTC-Overview
this is from an xp sp3 system, using ’7-Zip’, in my case.
while poking around last night i was having problems with the audio output.
it looks like init_Qt_synth is hardwired to "AU DLS Synth 1"
I have quicktime but am not sure about a synth. some other examples in 5.1 have a chooser for available targets. Maybe I can learn how to integrate that
called from QT_PercPlayer
ok found some info on the DLS synth
