Using c74 as a controller for sound design.

    Hi,there, does any one have examples on using the accelerometer with c74? I'm trying to use the accelerometer to control the speed of the sequencer played in Max/msp patch on mac, but didn't make it work.... As I'm new to c74 and still trying to figure out how to use it .
    Thank you very much! Yilin

      The accelerometer is difficult because it puts out a lot of info even when the device is not moving at all. I'd recommend scaling it up and truncating decimal places in addition to using a speedlim to limit the amount of data. in the example below, I'm using a [scale] object so that the x-axis roughly controls a gain slider. You could also hook it into a [metro] or [tempo] to control the tempo of a sequencer. Just scale your values correctly!

      Thank you very much! It's an good idea to make it work . It seems that I need to create a bunch of scaling objects to make x,y,z works well. Btw, do you know where to find any resources about c74 max/msp patch?

      In the help menu... or ctrl-click on an object. You should start from the basis...

      well.. I mean .. any patch or website about related examples on people who using C74 to do sound design , not the "ctrl-click" help file. :)
