Any hardware interface to run Max signal patch chords?


    Nov 11 2017 | 11:13 am
    Is anyone aware of any existing system (commercial or prototype) composed by an hardware interface and Max external/abstractions that allows to connect dynamically (at runtime) msp objects? In other words something that allows a user to run a signal patching chord at while the system is running without using the mouse. Thanks

      I was trying to find the link, but I couldn't, but I've seen an Arduino-based system that exists as a matrix of patch points that let you dynamically reroute computer programs. One of the examples was to glitch out super mario bros.
      From what I remember it just made binary connections which controlled a software matrix via OSC. So something like that would be possible, and is something I was thinking about the other day too. I'm sure there's a way to create a matrix like that where you have unique resistance values setup in a way where you can tell what connections are being made to what in an arbitrary way.
      Inside Max you would then just use [matrix~] to make and create those connections without audio dropouts (which might happen if you script audio cable connections.

      Hi Rodrigo,
      thanks for your feedback. I was assuming that given the creativity of people, something must have been made, and likely with an arduino... i guess I found the one you're referring to

      That's not the project I was thinking of, but that's much closer to what I meant!
