MAX MSP and timecode?

April 21, 2010 | 6:03 pm


I work in the cinema field, and would be interrested in using max MSP for some sound treatment.
Problem is, that I’d like to be able to trigger some presets at certain timecodes. (all the gear is slaved to LTC in rerecording studio).
So far, using and RME HDSP card with TCO (that is a card able of ASIO Positionning Protocole or APP), I couldn’t find a way to get Timecode (or even MTC) into MAX MSP… (using the adstatus timecode abilities, and with the dsp timecode message).

Does Max MSP support TimeCode? are there some externals dedicated to this task?

Let me know if you have any hint…

best regards,

Thanks a lot for your answer, I wanted to answer earlier, but didn’t because I was kept busy with non Max thing… and also because it doesn’t work for me, but I didn’t had time to investigate seriously enough to post something meaningful.

best regards,
