I am loking for max objects/ methods to analyze and manipulate _big_ lists in max.
I have looked at the RTC objects, but they don’t seem suffiscient in what I try to do:
I want to make a charicature of a recorded melody that is played by the y axis of the mouse.
I have recorded the mouse data stream into a list, and now I want to look through a list and when I see certain number changes in the data stream, I want to add/subtract to a section of the numbers in the list where the number changes occur …
Anyone, who has good experience working with big lists in max?
For pattern recognition i’d suggest giving a look at the Ircam FTM and/or MuBu externals. For large lists, there are some good recommandations in this thread already, but the bach library might be worth looking at. It’s all depending on what you mean with "big " – if it’s less than 4096 elements, you probably should go the zl way.
