[sharing is texting] tcxttm - a text-based synth

    [H.W.]
    i made a text-based synth that comes with fm-synth, wt-synth and sampler.
    the catch is, you control everything by text-inputs.
    here's youtube demo:
    obviously this is inspired by "live-coding" softwares like chuck and such,
    while live-coding is not quite possible with max/msp 4.6 especially with [buffer~]s,
    but what fascinated me the most is the idea to make music by text-inputs.
    so this is it...
    for the detail, you can look at the pdf file in the zip or type in "?" in the text field without quotation marks.
    download:
    note that this is an older version of max text file (.mxt)
    it should work in Max5 but probably works better with 4.6 runtime.
    i hope you enjoy.
