Version 1.8 (Max5) of the [rtcmix~] object is available for free
for Macintosh OS X (10.5/10.6). Windows 7 version coming soon!
New features in this release include a number of new 'instruments',
a dynamic envelope/control system to allow interactive modification
of instrument controls (PFields in RTcmix-parlance), and nice
tuning-system and numerical function packages by Joel Matthys.
For those who don't know, [rtcmix~] encapsulates the "musicN"-style sound
synthesis and signal processing language RTcmix within Max/MSP. RTcmix
includes a robust scheduler and large set of pre-compiled synthesis and
signal-processing instruments. It also comes with a functional-style
("C-like") programming interface for algorithmic compositional work as well
as data storage and mathematical operations. Full source for the object
and the language are also on-line.
Both Macintosh OSX and Windows XP versions (older) are available.
I hope you enjoy using it! For more information about RTcmix, visit
