FM Surfer

March 17, 2007 | 5:19 pm

Anyone know how I can contact John Bischoff, who developed FM Surfer, the synth patch in MAX Examples? I really like this patch. It’s a lot of fun to experiment with…in fact, I’d love to hook up a giant floor keybaord so my 2 year old twins can play it!

Moreover, I would like to leverage it and figure out a way to feed it with audio input (guitar) rather than the keyboard. I know, conceptually, that this requires some frequency analysis of the audio input, and then conversion of that into data to feed the synthesizer. This is a new prospect for my MAX learning curve.

Excellent. Thanks.

I combined fiddle and fmsurfer (made it stereo in), and I’m having a lot of fun with it and my guitar. It’s out of this world..but fmsurfer is a bit over my head. I’m going to use fiddle with a more basic synth object to learn how to control it more efficiently.
