  • (A YouTube video in which I demonstrate TransposerRT can be found here.  Please forgive the amateurish quality of the video; you'll hear background noise from my family, as well as pops and clicks from the freeware screencasting software I was struggling with.  I'm much better at making M4L devices than YouTube videos, I promise!) Have you ever wished that you could play notes on one MIDI track, and have those notes be applied as pitch transpositions to what's playing on other MIDI tracks?  Well, now you can.  TransposerRT is a freely downloadable pair of Max For Live MIDI Effect devices -a Sender and a Receiver- which together make Ableton Live much more flexible for improvisation, allowing you to send pitch transpositions to multiple MIDI tracks simultaneously on the fly. For example, say you have a bass track and a string pad track each playing their own clip, while you improvise the melody on another track.

  • HoaLibrary v2.2

    The CICM is pleased to announce this new release of the HOA Library. The HOA library allows musicians and composers to synthesize, transform and render sound fields (in 2d and 3d) in a creative and artistic way.

  • Pop Up Play Mixed Reality System

        The Pop Up Play project explored how immersive digital technology can be used to create learning opportunities for children and young people, in order to enhance their creativity, language and communication skills. The project was funded by the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts and was a joint project between The Spark Arts for Children, De Montfort University and Dotlib Ltd (Luke Woodbury). The Pop Up Play system is comprised of three parts - a video system, audio system and a lighting system.

  • The uc-33_midicontrol.pat implements a connection between Max 5 and the Evolution UC-33e Midi Interface. Usage: Place both [uc-33_midicontrol.maxpat] and [js uc-33.js] into the Max 5 directory and open the patcher. Instantiate new 'uc-33_midicontrol' object - there is an outlet for every control - Dials and Sliders. Move the UC-33e sliders and knobs - data is posted in the GUI console and the Max stderror detailing the control moved and it's midi value. Connect the outlets to other objects to control values from the UC-33e.

  • The patch is custom made for a Logitech Extreme 3d Pro joystick (under $30 just about anywhere).
