I am new to Max/msp excited and daunted even with its user-friendlies.
First is there a guide of how too's rather than the really useful tutorials ( i can't seam to get my ideas into the patch format )
eg when i want to build a pitch shifter,or delay pedal all the help info comes up with object description's, but not in a way(for a noob) to use them.
Basically i know what i want to build i just don't know how to do it , even copying the tutorial patches is no help , and i experience lots of signal time lag.
If anyone can give me some direction much welcomed.
The concept has probably been done already, but here it is
Like a real time looper but rather than looping it sends out a manipulated sample to an external looper, so i guess its a sample generator that loops its samples or sends samples to be looped.
In real time, i want all parameters to be random within defined ranges, and to be user overridden , presets as well.
i want to record an external signal, its duration and start rec are random defined, this is then effected and warped , it is then sent to an external app most likely a channel in live.
Once it has been sent a bang is sent to start the process once again , or the start bang can be controlled to start at intervals.
So far i was thinking Using a transport that sends bangs at certain times, yet what is the easiest way to randomise all these parameters.
I cant figure the best rec option , as i dont want to record to hd ( do i?)
oh damn i am just confusing myself, i have absorbed to much information the last week, i cant even press go .
