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.
Anyway, here's the patch (and link to the msd external):
