I’m totally new to Max and would love it if someone could give me a good resource to get started (such as some specific videos they recommend, good beginners tutorials, etc).
I am interested in routing eventually to Ableton Live, but for now would like to know if anyone has already written something that I can use to take the analog out of my old Casio SK-5 and use it (through analog line-in) to trigger MIDI messages/notes that can then be fed into a synth in… say ableton live?
Any assistance is appreciated.
The tutorials that come with Max would be a useful place to start. They’re free and you already have them.
Thanks raja… I’ll look over various tutorials.
Also, doing some research, it seems pretty obvious…
I had seen this video:
Which led me to fiddler for puredata. I’m guessing there may be a fiddler object for Max, but… if not, doing some research turned up this object:
Also, I have Vista… Just setting all this up, so I haven’t really configured midiyolk or maple midi, and I have a feeling I won’t need them with the maxforlive integration?
Thanks much for your input,
Thanks raja, but I can’t use that port of fiddler because I’m on Windows (looks to only be compatible with mac?).
I used the above pitch~ patch (http://web.media.mit.edu/~tristan/maxmsp.html) and created the attached (of course I "cheated" by copying most of the stuff, but I do actually code with object based programming [visual c#], so I read up on the details)…
Still no midiout yet (hey… I need to sleep). VERY cool program. Thanks guys.
