I've been fortunate enough to be a beta tester for Roby's rs.delos object, and can say that it is quite amazing. I've not yet played with the note~ object referenced above (hope to try it at the Cycling Expo!), but a few nice things about Roby's are the incredible flexibility for the GUI display, the ability to also embed buffer~'s in the pianoroll (just like any DAW, it can include audio buffers AND note info!!), and cross platform ability. And finally, Roby's open-ness to suggestions for improvement.
haha, stupid me, I mistakenly thought the button was to buy the thing... and I wanted to click on the word license in the sentence above, sorry,... just don't expected that kind of button for that, sorry for the noise
I bought it but I was never able to figure out how to use it! The documentation seemed to just define what the pieces were as opposed to how to actually use them. I futzed around with it for a while and then gave up (no time) and was just hoping some beginner tutorials would show up that I could read.
the problem with the missing image files was a path problem. if you download the demo there is a folder "rs.delos put into Cycling '74:max-externals", but you don't have to put this whole folder in your Cycling folder, but only its content
this works: /Applications/Max6/Cycling '74/3rdparty-externals
this does not work: /Applications/Max6/Cycling '74/3rdparty-externals/rs.delos put into Cycling '74:max-externals
Hey- great concept- much needed, but I'm having issues getting usable output from it. I'm just using the demo, but sometimes it doesn't cycle when it is set to, sometimes it misses messages, and the bpf output doesn't produce reliable results. It seems like the first two issues happen when there's something else going on in Max, like a message box moving. Maybe it has to do with the transport missing a specific time or something?
The bpf output sometimes kicks out time x coordinates based on the absolute time of the transport, sometimes between 0 and around 100 (but not always), even when the event is much longer. This isn't affected by changing absolute vs relative bpf time.
I'd love to use this external for a number of applications, but I don't think I can at this point. Any suggestions?
