Hello everyone my name is Alex and i'm very new to Max Msp, i have read through the help files and looked on the forum but what i need to do doesn't seem to be explained anywhere or i'm stupid ...probably the later but either way if any one can help me here is my problem.
I am currently doing a project for my degree in music production using MaxMsp 4.5 and jitter 1.5 and i proposed to build a virtual record deck that you can load an mp3 in to and scratch with it but this will be intergrated with jitter to perform changes in effects on the video screen acording to locations that you scratch on the deck, i also want the dial object to act as a real deck so when you release the dial the tune keeps playing untill you grab it again and start scratching in a different location.
as far as i'm aware the dial( what i will use as a deck) can only output the numbers from 1 to 100 in one box or from 1 to 100 in a sequence of boxes but they all change at the same time so when you move the dial to say number 20 all the boxes say number 20, i think what i need to do is have effects 1 play at 10 effects 2 play at 30 effects 3 play at 50 etc
so i need box 1 to get to 10 and stay at 10 then box 2 to get to 30 and stay a 30 etc and i need the effects to know they should play when it recieves a certain number so if it recieves the number 10 it will trigger the effect untill it sees a number 30 which is the next effect.
any ideas on how to lock the numbers in the boxes or a better easier way of doing what i need to do will be greatly appreciated, thankyou for taking the time to read my post.
