[sharing is fun] Max5patch I think it came out kinda cool.


    May 09 2008 | 10:27 am
    Started off as me picking through some posted samples on the list. It came out kind of interesting, resets itself ever 16 bars.
    Finally, after 6 months of climbing the Max hill, and a few ah-ha! moments, I think I came up with something cool with no samples. :)
    Feedback appreciated.

      Cool, but dare i say it, but-ugly ;-)
      I think one of Peter Elsea's tutorials covers making
      patches more readable/presentable to others - perhaps
      that's the next Max hillock you should get your
      climbing boots on for ?
      cheers

      Yes, that is one hideous Max patch.
      Along with being functional and interesting, programming (since a little after it's conception) should be easily read (and understood)by others. It took me a while to really grasp that concept and to want to strive for easily readable coding, but it makes a lot of sense:
      People can work off your programming and give you feedback-make it as simple as possible and generic-people work very differently than you might.
      It might be used by programmers in the future- If it is overly complicated then it might not be, however functional it is.
      The patch I include is of a synth I made a long time ago (obsolete because of poly~) with a very clean, neat GUI. Take a look at that for reference.

      OOPS. Here's the file.

      wow!
      this patch is begging for presentation mode.
      and subpatchers.
      and more than one [[loadbang]]
      it sounds really nice though!

      I think I might actually clean this one up and make it more uasable.
      It's a HUGE mess and a great example of how not to patch. :)
      I took little bits here and there from the posts here. Believe it or not, it was originally going to be a robotic fart noise maker/drum machine, but I went nuts with oscillators and a spider on LSD style of patching. It's just a sketch...I'm not normally so messy. I'll clean it up and repost.
      I also noticed that I have a tap object here or there, so you may not be hearing the reverb.

      I couldn't open the file on OSX.
      I understand about other users...I know I've learned from picking apart patches and love when the programmer is organized. This was more like a flow of thought experimentation sketch. I think of it as a one trick pony, but I will clean it up for anyone learning Max to see what's going on under the hood.

      Works in OSX for me. But yes, very very messy lol

      A little more organized, but I'm still cleaning it up and fixing some problems here and there.
      I'll start making a presentation interface once the patch stuff is clean enough for me to remember what's what even a year from now.
      BTW, if you don't have tap tools, there'll be a reverb missing.

      Anyone else getting a hideously loud burst of noise in whenever the DAC is turned on? I can't figure if it's my patch or my interface.
