I recently upgraded to Max 6 with Gen with the goal of reproducing this kind of setup:
The idea is to allow Max to directly control a laser projector by analyzing a video, converting that video data into audio signals (i.e. analog voltages) being sent out my audio interface. From what I can tell, the laser is looking for the following values in the -10 to +10 voltage range.
Red X coordinate
Red Y coordinate
Green X coordinate
Green Y coordinate
Blue X coordinate
Blue Y coordinate
The artist stated that he would have liked to have used 192khz sampling rate for maximum resolution, but his interfaces only supported 96khz. I have a Motu 828mk3 for this project, which does support 192khz. Also, the visual data doesn't have to be a video, but could be any visual data being generated on the fly in Max. In general, the visual data should be simple, vector based shapes, as more complex data can overload the laser projector's scanners.
If any of you can suggest how I should start on this, i.e. modules to use, etc. that would be very helpful.
Thanks in advance!
(should this thread go in the Gen or Jitter forum?)
