matrix~ feedback


    Mar 06 2006 | 6:14 am
    Hi:
    I trying to build a EMS Synthi like matrix modular synth. When I use matrix~ to route, for example, osc1 out to feed osc2 frec contr, everything on that path stops.
    I think it's something related to matrix~ signal looping issue, isn't it? I cant't figure it up. Any thougth?
    symple patch follows.
    thank you very much.
    thomas.

      You have to use send~ / receive~ pairs, or tapin~/tapout~ to break up
      the feedback loop. (you have to delay the feedback by a minimum of one
      signal vector.)

      You might also want to check out this project before you get too far
      into it, assuming that you want to really emulate the thing:

      This one still gets my vote for best Max/MSP creation, that doesn't
      look like a Max/MSP creation!

      absolutely, more people should spend as much attention to design...

      many thanks to everyone...
      I already know couprie synthi... When I started this project it was the first (and only in max) I found.
      but..
      (refreshing an old topic) Im trying not to emulate, just creating something new.
      As somebody said in this forum (I dont remember who), It's a little bit useless to "emulate" analog synths digitaly cause its diferente nature.
      Im trying to, in first place to get in touch with that analog modular technologies in a way cheaper and cleaner but not missing sigth that Im not working whit signals but samples.
      Its just like a philosophic matter, isn it?
      My goal is to reveal digital limitations bulding (in this case) analog like sinthesizers and to use it as an stetic resource.
      What do you think?
      thank you very much...
