Several years ago, Darwin Grosse and I worked on a project that used optical flow to track people running around in circles to simulate the jog wheel on old analog video tape decks.
Understanding how the threading model in Max works will help you patch more efficiently, and also be on the lookout for potential bottlenecks and trouble spots.
The Disting is an analog Eurorack module from the Expert Sleepers that I see in almost everyone’s system.
I’m not sure why, but it seems like lots of beginning Max users think that the only way to do anything cool with Max includes hours of meditation and days of careful patching.
