if i wanted a maxmsp based installation that ran for a long time, wouldnt a computer be a bit overkill? when the computer will only be doing one thing. couldnt the max runtime and the patches be embedded in a chip or something that wouldnt require as much power and would be small and out of sight?
Ok, now your question is more clear. interesting. i was wondering about that some times ago.
i don’t know but i imagine that what is needed is only a little PC mother-board with sound output using an SSD drive… if you don’t need a screen, right ?
(well, at least you would need a screen on the first configuration : To automatically load your patch at Windows start.)
What you may need is a good geek. And I’m sure some maxers must have think about this before.
Maybe you could post a new topic on this forum, but with more a precise title, for example :
"a very small PC chip to run a max patch ?"
("running a patch ??" is absolutely not a good title, because if a maxer already use a chip like this, he won’t necessarily open this topic while looking at the topic list.)
If you find the solution, I will be interested by it in the future, so, thanks by advance if you can post it back in this forum.
