hey out there, i am kinda new to max, just have 13days left with the demo, then i wanna know if its worth the bucks..
so i wanna switch from python to max because of the instable timing in python... i am mostly focusing on developing devices for live performance, so i cannat accept some inaccurate timers that frequently skipt some steps.. so simple question first.. how to make a reliable and 100% tight timer in timer in max? although then i dont even know just a small piece of whole max jitter etc, i have the reliability of a timer without hangovers.... but even there i saw the same problem that i observerd with python... lets say the timer is used to trigger a quant dynamic step seq, for 130bpm with steps of 18th, the timer is still sometimes skipping some steps ... here its waaaaaaaay better then with that 50ms limit in lives python api, but it was still there. so is this signal stuff (green patch cords) the anser? didn yet work with that.. or even some other of the thousands of opportunities?
dont hesitate to tell me the most compley solution, for accurate timing i would nearly do everything
so far! thx and cheers
ah and ps :)
for every that is interested in the current project,i did a short feature video a time ago, its called "steq" and its basically midi devices synchronized and can be automated for weird shit on stage :D now first max steps are transfering this to max (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jywWlDTmf0&feature=plcp
awefully vid quality, but some links to python sources below)
