Max with Ableton?? Any suggestions for Algorithmic Pieces?

Feb 14 2008 | 7:00 pm

I am just wondering has anyone efficiently mapped some of the ableton live parameters to a Max Patch or vice versa?

Has anyone try’d to do this in the context of an algorithmic piece?

Any feedback at all would be great!

Probably one of the best aspects of max/msp is it just intergrates it’s self with anything , so YES of course , they work great together

On a personal level I have just used max/msp to Abelton Live and not the other way around

Just a simple patch of sending random CC values to desired FX ect.. within Abelton Live.

But hey you could go much further than that !!! This probably the simplest form of interaction between the two.

I recently created a work that took some clues from the "Going Haywire with Rewire" tutorials… Max was sending messages to Ableton Lives’ transport and tempo as well as midi data to fx and sometimes to record audio in a set. Attempting to record audio while the transport was being yanked around by Max usually ended up in a crash.

hostcontrol~ did the majority of the work.

here’s one of the tutorials…
