Midi notes with ADSR

Apr 14 2011 | 9:03 am


i´m sending via USB-Keyboard Midi Notes to MAX.

With [notein] & [stripnote] i can Play a synth in Max.

But now, i wants Max to Use a defined ADSR on incomming Midi Notes…

I need some tipps, to control Velocity via a defined ADSR

The picture shows my actual setup. Every incomming note triggers the Envelope. Actual i´ve no influence on Note-lenght and note-Velocity…

are there no little Tipps?

Every synthesizer can run a envelope apending on ioncomming midi Notes…

Actually there is no effekt, if i play long or short notes…, because the envelope is alwas the same… But when i hold on an key/Midi-Note, i will hear this sound so long, i hold the key!!!

I’m going to go out on a limb here, and guess that you haven’t worked your way through the Max/MSP tutorials. This secret as well as a plethora of others can be learned in the tutorials. I would also point you towards the "Common Max Arcana" thread which discusses some common topics.

In general what you are probably going to want to do is learn the poly~ object, and make your synth run in there. I have a couple examples showing the use of poly~, as well as some simple enveloping on my examples page:

You can also look in some of the example patches: adsr_intro and adsr_advanced, which implement adsr~ and groove~ within a poly~ object.
