I don't own Max/MSP, but am considering buying it, if it suits my needs here:
A little while back I worked on a game/music software project with a friend which used Processing to generate the visuals, and SuperCollider to generate the audio. (It can be downloaded here: http://www.minornine.com/ada
... or, there's an old WIP video here: http://vimeo.com/6812674
For a variety of reasons (the file size of that download being one of them!) I don't want to use SuperCollider any more for this sort of thing. That's what brings me here: I have run into a variety of applications that were made solely in Max, and then exported (or so it seems...) as executables (i.e. Forester: http://leafcutterjohn.com/?page_id=14
). What I would be interested in doing is exporting what basically amounts to a synthesizer with a number of dynamic inputs (knob-equivalents) that could be controlled by events happening in Processing. The idea would be that someone would be able to run the fully functioning software by opening the Max app and the Processing app with no further difficulties.
Does anyone know if this is a possibility? I imagine it is... If this is the case, is it also not too difficult?
Let me know if anything I've said needs to be articulated better :)
Thanks very much!
