Looking for Max professional to build a prototype

Jun 14 2010 | 1:15 pm

Hello guys,

this is my first post. I am not a Max user myself, but I hope one of you can help.

I am planning a small (music) software project – i.e., I have a concept, but will need an external coder to turn it into a working product.

This means that I will need a mockup or preferably a working prototype that I can play with and give to this coder (whom I’ll have to pay) as a "blueprint", to ensure there are no expensive misunderstandings.

I am currently evaluating NI’s Generator (which I have) or Max (which I don’t have) as platforms for this prototype.

I feel Max is the more flexible and powerful platform, but I simply do not have the time to learn all the ins and outs for just one project.

So I wonder if one of the gifted Max users here might be interested in building this prototype.

I will pay for this – but frankly, it’s a small budget, as this is a one-time, kind-of-hobby project.

This would basically be a kind of pattern sequencer with a few sound generators attached, with some movable objects (preferably knobs) in a grid controlling pattern playback (speed, randomization, pitch, filter freq. etc.). While playing with the prototype, I’d like to be able to feed it with simple sequences (either MIDI or text files) and control the playback parameters from the grid.

I understand that a Max user could build a platform-specific executable that I could work with, or I could get the Max demo (and maybe buy the full product if this project takes longer than those magic 30 days ;).

This would not have to be a "pro" pattern sequencer, as it will only be seen/used by a few people.

If someone is interested, I’d be glad to hear from you, so I can send a longer description and a few graphics.

My mail address is

(I hope that this post is in accordance with forum rules, as I’m not advertising – I’m just looking for a Max user to contribute to a project.)

Thank you.

in case someone wonders …

I got two PM responses and just sent the project specs to the guys who offered to help. If things ends in tears and chaos (doubt it ;) , I’ll bump this thread. Thanks.
