The wacom object and Intuos4 tablets

April 19, 2010 | 7:44 am


Before I order the Intuos4 tablet – does this work with the wacom object in max? Is there anyone, who has had good experience with the Intuos4 tablet sending data into max?

Thanks ahead,

I should get my Intuos 4 in a few days; I’ll get back to you then.

Forgive my ignorance but do all such tablet devices require pen input only? I’d like to try one such interface in a Max DMI, but using fingertip interaction (not necessarily multitouch); should i be looking at, for example, the HP Slate or other iPad-alikes?

The iPad will definitely do what you want and there a number of apps with Max patches already available or easily programmed to do just about anything you want. Examples are: TouchOSC, Mrmr, Fantastick, and c74. Each has a slightly different twist on how get things done. Mrmr is free and pretty well supported, and TouchOSC while not free is very nice and a native iPad app.

Thanks ajoe
Are the apps you mention solely iPad native?

None of those apps is solely iPad native. All are available for iPhone and perhaps other platforms.

Midipad ( is due for release very soon and will be iPad native.

OK… I’ve got it !!! It works with Max/MSP 4.6 (didn’t install Max 5 yet…) and with the wacom external.

So it should go smoothly in Max 5.
