connecting maxMSP to ableton help..


    Mar 17 2013 | 6:33 pm
    hi, im reasonably new to max and ableton and im working on a project on max/msp and needing a bit of help.
    I have a project which involves taking values from a video patch (jit.3m) to control the dynamics of sound for a class in university. From the pixel values on the output, we are looking to increase the tempo, pitch etc, as the values of the color increase. I am just wondering if you know how i can take the output parameters on max and use them as an input to control an arpeggiator on ableton? any help would be much appreciated.
    cheers

      easiest way is to use MaxForLive. break open MaxForLive devices like the LFOs and copy out the MapButton* bpatchers into your own system. That'll take care of things for you.
      Barring that, you can always use [cltout] to send midi between your two applications.
