Urgent : lib LXP15

hello

I’m working on NoaNoa composed by Kaija Saariaho in 1998 at Ircam…
This is a piece for flute, samples and transformations (Lexicon LXP15, PCM80 and Yamaha SPX1000).

It uses an unknowed (for me…) objet wich is called [lib LXP15].
And the patch wasn’t revised since March 1998…

So does anybody know this object and what it does ?
I performed this piece next thuesday, so it is very urgent…

thanks for your help !

A control patch for the Lexicon LXP-15. Whereabouts unknown (both hardware
and object)!

Thanks Darwin

But I am quite disappointed because if it is just a patcher, it seems to have been forgetten in the package…

So I am going on my investigations…

It’s probably a combination of two things: the long-dead “lib” object
for Max 2/3 (a generic script-based MIDI librarian) and a lib script
file for the LXP-15.

“lib” is something which could be rather nicely replaced by an MXJ
package. (It’s on my to-do list, having been in the charts for 40
weeks at number 68.)

I know that an 100% MaxMSP version of this piece exists now; it was done recently by the Berkeley Symphony, with technical support from CNMAT. You should contact IRCAM and Ms. Saariaho before you go too far into reviving a 1998 version.

Thanks everybody !

Just after having resuscitated the 98′s patch and thanks to Le Quan Ninh, I have had the answer of these questions.

1st, you’re right Nick (but now it’s sure) :

2d, sorry ddg, I already have the Ninh’s LXP15 control patch but this is not exactly what I need

3rd, you’re right mz, and I received the 100% Max patch directly from Jean-Baptiste Barriere.

And I am a happy man

So thanks a lot everybody !

Right, it seems there’s a MSP only version. I don’t think Kaija will
have the patch so contact ircam’s production directly.

Best,
