I'm new to Max/MSP but I'm really glad I found it, it seems to be a realy interesting software to work with. Anyway, I'm currently working on an art project at school entitled "Colour, body, and dynamism". I had the idea of linking my computer to a camera aiming at a huge blank panel. What I want to do is create a certain patch which will use the camera to recognize simple colour which will be painted on the panel. To illustrate my saying, let's say I paint a huge red dot in the middle of the surface, I want the software to release a certain sample, such as a drum part.
I'm aware that what I'm asking is quite difficult to obtain. Anyway I also know I'll probably need to use Ableton Live which I'm confortable with, I just don't know where to start with Max.
It will be very kind of you to try and help me out here!
