Raspberry Pi, little revolution in march

September 20, 2011 | 1:36 pm

If arduino coul deal with video, sound, camera, open gl…
it would be the Raspberry Pi.


* 700MHz ARM11
* 128MB or 256MB of SDRAM
* OpenGL ES 2.0
* 1080p30 H.264 high-profile decode
* Composite and HDMI video output
* USB 2.0
* SD/MMC/SDIO memory card slot
* General-purpose I/O
* Optional integrated 2-port USB
hub and 10/100 Ethernet controller
* Open software (Ubuntu, Iceweasel, KOffice, Python)
1 Watt powering. !!!!!!

What do you think of that ?

Hi all,

I’m sure many of us are who work with installations and interaction design are very excited about the possibilities of creating rich interactives with this incredible computer.

Can the Cycling74 team tell us about about any plans for how/if we could run Max on RasberryPi?

Looking through the forum – installing Max on Fedora/Linux sounds like an ordeal.

Any projects using the Raspberry Pi would be of huge interest. Very exciting.

Beyond just the nightmare of trying to install Max on linux, the raspberry pi uses an ARM CPU, so there’s pretty much no way it’s going to work.

Well, another reason to port Max to Linux. They could even sell a runtime especially compiled for a raspberry…;-)
I wonder how long c74 will resist…

They sure have ‘resisted’ the iOS thing well enough… Not to mention Linux in general. Though it would be awesome to have an embedded max solution.

And mainly it would be fantastic to finally get a Raspberry Pi. I am on the waiting list for month!! :( anyone had success in getting one?

I guess that makes the new release of PD even more of a game changer, then?

April 24, 2012 | 2:04 pm

Why changing and not using every tool for what it can do best… ?

Though i love the work-flow of Max a lot and it would be awesome if it could be available for more platforms…..

+100 for a Linux runtime for raspberry pi. I wouldn’t mind if it had limited capacities (i.e no jitter)

I still don’t find Pd-extended anywhere near as useable or quick to work with as Max, which is frustrating because I’ve got nice Linux alternatives lined up for pretty much everything else that I want to do.

+1 for Max getting into Linux and iOS spheres.

this card by interface-z, french compagny is a max patch reader.
you can plug sensors, motors, pwm, relays…
you upload the patches into it, and then don’t need computer anymore.
It doesn’t deal with video.

Didn’t know such a thing existed! Surely it only supports a limited set of objects, no externals, etc?

June 6, 2012 | 6:09 pm

it’s a mix between max objects and its own objects

really good stuff

that doc says:

Le mode autonome ne fonctionne qu’avec Max4.xx.yy ou plus ancien pour l’instant, le traducteur Max5 n’étant pas encore écrit. Une fois écrit le traducteur de patch, la carte fonctionnera aussi avec Pure Data.

(only can translate max 4 patches)

actually it does work in max 5 now !
there is still a problem in max6 (certainly because of the rounded patche coords attributes), but soon in max 6 !

The Rpi only has 256 MB of ram.
I doubt something like Max could run well in what’s left over after the OS boots
