[sharing] Looping Gestures with mtr


    Sep 22 2020 | 5:55 pm
    With this latest Max release (8.1.6), we've added a long list of new features to mtr that support more creative usage of this classic Max object. To celebrate the release, we put together a video and patcher that uses mtr to drive a granular sound engine with looping parameters.
    In addition to the expansive looping and overdubbing features, mtr now supports dictionary access, event editing via messages, pattr-style binding, and transport sync. We look forward to seeing and hearing what you make with it.

      a turbo-noob question:
      its my first update since my purchase of full max licence so im not sure do I have to uninstall previous max version and then install the update OR do I just install the update into the same old folder and It automatically deletes the older version?
      and do my snippets and libraries remain intact?

      Hiya, Max updates are always a full install so there is no need to pre-install other versions. Your snippets and Preferences shouldn't be affected in any way.

      I am aware that you don't need previous versions, but if you have them: do you need to first uninstall them yourself or does the new installation do that for you?

      just install the update into the same old folder and It automatically deletes the older version
      👆this(you'll be given a choice when running the installer to either 'replace' the old version of Max, or install alongside(allowing you to keep newer versions alongside older ones)... but either way, as long as you open and work within the 8.1.6 version of Max, you'll have access to the latest/8.1.6 version of the 'mtr' object - you don't need to uninstall anything first)

      Hello Andrew, [mtr] especially the pattr-style binding seems to be quite buggy in Max 8.1.8. I tried to make a parameter recorder for non real time rendering (e.g. 60fps recording and slow and non equidistant playback based on the speed of the rendering), in order to overcome limitations of this one https://cycling74.com/tutorials/best-practices-in-jitter-part-2-recording-1/ . I would like to know if one can use [pattrstorage @subscribemode 1], [autopattr] in parallel to [mtr @bindto]. In the following example it looks like after binding the sliders to [mtr] the subscription to the [pattrstorage] objects gets lost. Is this a general limitation ?

      Hello Andrew, I recently created a problem report about the MTR new version, but maybe I should have done it here. https://cycling74.com/forums/mtr-new-version-read-argument-no-longer-work As a new version of Max is currently in process, maybe it will solve it? Thanks Charles
