I just was wondering whether anyone has successfully implemented scanned synthesis in max without using csound~ or scansynth~, and could offer some advice.
I'm aware of jobo's "Scanned Synthesizer" (listed in the c74 Projects page), and have put together a quick patch which I think approximates the technique. It uses the msd object to model a string which is then fed into an instance of multislider. From here, the data is streamed into buffer~ to create a dynamic wavetable which is then read by wave~. It works, but produces an irritating crackle (perhaps due to the rate at which the model is being updated). I was hoping that someone with more experience could share their thoughts on the underlying principle (it's limitations, better techniques etc). Any advice would be great.
