Transport in Max5

Hi! This is my first topic, I hope it is in the right place.

I have a doubt about the new object in max, transport.
I read that is possible to use the global transport to control several “sub” transports (the sub multiples must have a name).
My question is about aplying this to a computer network.
Is possible to use one global transport in a master computer that is controling the transport of several computers that are connected in a network (udpsend/udpreceive).

best regards,
dc

I am controlling my max patch on max 4.6
with a max match on Max 5 using transports:
yet all that I send through udp send/receive are
bangs and text messages.

Udpsend/udpreceive objects network messages in UDP packets.
Unless the global timing of the default transport can be addressed
within a udp packet
I dont know how what you would like to do can be done.

I sort it out programming the other computers’ patches just to receive
bangs and messages through udp.

I am very interested into this topic,
I’d like to use timepoints and just givethem a name of my global
transport on the master mac, within a network…
so hopefully some master would help us with this out..

thnx

ciao

Well, as far through what i have been experimenting, the transport don’t do what I want.
I want to tell to a slave computer that the master computer have the master transport or “master clock” (sorry about the confusing phrase) that should sync all transports in the network.
Certainly there are other ways to do this, but I have been very pleased with transport because allows, for example, to define the metro’s interval through notes figures instead of milliseconds,gives info about measure, beat etc., and the potential of timepoint object.
Maybe a experienced user knows a solution.

Thanks for your post.

Best regards,

That’s a very good starting point! Thanks a lot RabidRaja! You probably solve my problem. I’m getting new fresh ideas! :D
