I am trying to learn a little about Cellular Automata. I am trying to make a little 1D CA in MAX. I made a patch based on a simple switching circuit. It seems to work but it is messy. A very typical patch for me, not clean or elegant everything is brute force connecting cables. I wonder if someone might have a look at it and suggest how to make it better, cleaner. It’s not a large patch so it is simple to see what is happening.
The PAK object is great for my little patch. Cuts down on cabling and outputs all at once, perfect. The Jit.Linden object is a little complex for me yet. I will have to do a bit of study on that one. The Wolfram patch is fantastic. It is a very complex patch but I recognize the patterns and it is easy to control. I can reduce size of the L-System to 12 and then I get 8 gate outs which is essentially what I wanted 8 chaotic gates to send to my modular synth.
So thanks again for the tips I will go off now and study up on L-Systems.
