mdegranular~: new version of granular synthesis object

    Oct 08 2013 | 3:50 pm
    Hello everyone,
    I know some people here are users of my granular synthesis object mdegranular~. I've updated this to the latest MaxMSP API (6.1.3) which means 64-bit float processing and a host of improvements in stability. In particular the object is much more stable when receiving messages etc. when the dac~ is off:
    Best, Michael

      Glad to see this Michael. The only thing that stopped me using it more in the past was the occasional crash you refer to.
      Nice one

      Hi, no, I'm afraid the windows version is old. I don't have a windows C compiler to make a new version at the moment. Maybe I should look into a cygwin compile?
      Wrt crashes: I've been using the object for years now, in dozens of performances, and it's never crashed. Honest! The old version would crash when the dac~ was off and it received messages that needed audio info like sampling rate (for conversion of millisecs to samples and hence memory allocation) but never, in my experience, when the dac~ was on. I can understand though that getting to know the object probably meant doing stuff with the dac~ off at some point early on and a crash then is not exactly encouraging. Anyway, I hope the new version puts all that to rest.

      hi michael, thanks for the infos. Can't you just use the freeware Visual Studio Express 2012 ( free download from Microsoft website )? If you are on OsX only and if in the code there's no Mac specific code i can help compile it on my Windows sytem given some help from you :-)
      cheers! a.

      Thanks for this Alfonso, I'll look into it. I've got access to a windows machine so will install the compile as soon as I get a chance. All the best, Michael
