Tempo changes in MIDI sequence file playback

January 15, 2007 | 6:58 pm

Does anyone know of a Max/MSP 4.6 (intel) compatible standard midi file sequence player object that allows for beat-by-beat tempo variation on playback? Eric Singer’s SeqPlayer did this prior to 4.6 but doesn’t run in 4.6. Are there plans to update seq with this feature? I’m seeing if it is possible to keep some older pieces still playable that use this.

Thanks for any help offered.

SeqPlayer has been ported to UB.

Trust me… I did the port. I think Eric just needs a chance to
upload it somewhere. Have you tried writing to him?

Thanks for the response Peter. Yes, I contacted Eric a few months ago but he was not working on porting seqPlayer. Knowing that a port is working is great news. Is it being shared (may I get a copy somewhere)?

I’ll write to him again now that I know this.

Thanks again.

FTM (made by IRCAM) has variable Midi playback speed. It seems to work instantaneously.

Also, you’re able to alter the playback speed of the standard Max Midi play object when a new note is played but it’s more complex than the FTM method.

FTM is free to download – you may need a while to get used to it but it’s a powerful library.

Hope that helps.

OK, in response to popular demand and by request from Eric Singer
himself, I have uploaded my UB port of SeqPlayer to my web site over
at BEK.

To all those interested: please point your browser to
http://www.bek.no/~pcastine/Music/programs.html#MaxStuff> and scroll down to
the "Various Ports" section, where you’ll find a link to
SeqPlayer.mxo.zip.

While you’re there you can also look at the information about other
stuff I’ve done, it may be of interest.

FYI – There seems to be some confusion and/or problems with two of
the links in this section.

1) The link to Rothwell’s ‘registry’ object takes you to this page
< http://www.cassiel.com/software/> where the following info is given:
"The registry object is now compiled as a fat binary for 68K and
PPC." No mention is made of UB version, despite the fact that the
link from the original page mentions it.

2) The link to Jester’s ‘frame’ object takes you to this page
http://www.bek.no/~pcastine/Music/web.media.mit.edu/~tristan/maxmsp.html>
which seems not to exist, per the message from the server: "The
requested URL /~pcastine/Music/web.media.mit.edu/~tristan/maxmsp.html
was not found on this server."

Peter Castine has actually ported the registry object to UB – I have
a test version of this, so I’ll look into uploading it for public
release.

Thanks for the heads-up. I rewrote the .html document at some ungodly
hour of the morning, trying to get things uploaded ASAP and to get
some (hopefully) helpful links out to answer common "where can I
find…?" questions.

Nick has responded to your first, the second link now points to Jer
Welter’s site (sorry, stupid copy-and-paste). However, I’m not sure
if Jer has uploaded the UB version. In fact, due to a bizarre
sequence of events spanning half a decade, he may not even have it.
In which case I may have to upload the copy to BEK, pending approval,
yadayadayada.

As if there wasn’t enough to do…
