Euclidean Rhythm Generator

Sept. 2012
Ancona, Italy


Version 2.3 with new Dynamic / Density modulation feature.

Inspired by the paper ‘The Euclidean Algorithm Generates Traditional Musical Rhythms’ by Godfried Toussaint. Already existing MFL devices I found on the Web did not satisfy my needs (broken basic algorithm, missing some features I needed, incomplete integration in Ableton Live…). So I wrote my own device starting from scratch. The device is entirely written in MAX/MSP(6.0.7). No externals are used.

For the basic paper take a look at:

How was MAX used?

Entirely written in MAX/MSP.

looks great, but where can i get it? part 2. Wish ppl would stop posting on here unless they have something to sell/give away (interesting MSP artworks or installations are always welcome of course). Otherwise I feel like a college professor checking students work at the end of the term/semester.

Hey hello there. I have some issues with this feature… Ableton (9.1.1) crashes any move on the device… Max is up to date. My copy of the device comes from the dropbox link listed by manresa. I think it is an old version of the patch. As the original link is dead, any idea ?
Thanks a lot.
