Hi, I'm a complete Max/Gen/Jitter newbie. I know I need to dig into all the tutorials and other resources, but for now I was wondering whether anyone can point me to examples (if they exist) of the kind of thing I want to do.
What I'm interested in: Midi input (from Ableton), where each Note On event causes a shape to appear (could be anything, for instance a sphere). As time passes it goes through various transformations (shading, position, whatever). A possible example would be a "world" in which a spherical ball appears with each note, and bounces around with simulated gravity until it comes to rest. Or the model could be simpler, where spheres just move from one side of the screen to the other. I've looked for examples like this, but I couldn't find any. Are there any examples of such a thing?
