[share] eno-esque piano patch

hello world

here is my new patch that plays back piano sounds.
http://ondomusic.com/mesa.elech.tele/__for_you_to.zip
piano samples are included so that zip file is a bit bigger than usual.

win and mac versions of the build are also included.
__for_you_to.mxt is the original and editable patch.
(it's an old format but shouldn't have a problem with Max6)

here are some examples:
http://ondomusic.com/uhitokiyosue/snd30_01.mp3
http://ondomusic.com/uhitokiyosue/snd30_02.mp3

http://ondomusic.com/uhitokiyosue/snd30_03.mp3

how to use:
when you launch, you get a mixer screen with reverb and delay.
you select a “score” from the red top selection.
(there are six “score”s which are .mxt files in the _lcds folder.)
the operations are done mostly by dragging your mouse over the blank field.
the direction of the dragging will effect the outcome.
there are 7 voices from which you select at the bottom of the score.

you can select multiple scores simultaneously but it might increase the chance of crash.

you can change the tuning of the piano or select tuning presets from the list at the left top.
if you click soundcheck on the right top you will get old fashioned DSP Status.

piano sounds are recorded using bosendorfer mini grand played by me.

this patch was actually made for a production of a commercial cd,
but the project was rejected and shelved by the label…
so i thought it might just worth some to post the patch here.
this is an example how the cd might have ended up to be.

(you need firefox or chrome to hear the sound)

i was going to write some detailed instructions,
but after a few demos on friends i realized that they enjoyed the mystery solving process of each score more than me revealing all the secrets out.
so i hope you enjoy the same process.

all the piano samples and the content of the patch are in public domain.
if you like any portion of them, please feel free to copy, modify, or use to your advantage.

questions and comments are welcome.

Looks pretty cool (like some of your earlier pieces, if I’m not mistaken). Downloading now. Thanks for sharing…

This is so good. You are a true Max/MSP artist, and you motivate me to do more artistic performances on Max/MSP, instead of just tool making. Thank you.

beautiful man. congratulations.

( Unfortunately the big question here isn’t about max )

How a label reject and/or shelve such a work ?

thank you guys for kind words…

hems, i don’t really know the reason of the rejection.
maybe the project was too ambitious and costly,
because originally the project was to have a few musicians play with the software, record the outcomes, and do remixes upon them.
there was even a talk to get Ryuichi Sakamoto and Towa Tei involved…

Wow. That sounds like a big collaboration, but I am not surprised at all, your sound and improvisations are so original and professional sounding just like any big name.

Nonetheless, I will study your work this summer, try to learn from it. Really good stuff man. I really liked the Kocyu project, I’d like to do something similar very soon.

DeusNovus, i appreciate that.
i was kinda bumbed about it. so it’s nice to know someone find it useful.
and my patches are unnecessarily messy,
(though they have certain logic of order to me)
so if you have any questions at all, let me know…

@mesa
I really like the patch and its sounding.
Is it difficult to implement different shapes (triangel, circles et al) ?

thanks for kind words…

Klangschmied, i would say they are more difficult though not impossible.
there are no messages to draw a triangle, so you have to use line segments.(in max4. i don’t know about 5&6)
circles are maybe a bit easier but [lcd] object is (in max4) not aliased,
so it won’t look very smooth…
