I'm totally new to Max/MSP...as in I haven't actually downloaded it yet. I've been reading the manuals, but I was sort of hoping to wait for 5 before I buy to avoid the confusion of switching.
I'm looking to use Max to build a custom step sequencer to interface my Monome 256 with my Access Virus TI synth.
My concern is the way the Virus handles communication between itself and the TI VST plug-in: it's fairly non-standard, and I don't know enough about this stuff to be able to determine if this is something I can do...
I COULD not use the TI plug-in and do things with MIDI, but then I'd need to buy a MIDI interface, instead of using the TI's USB connection, etc...
So, I tried emailing cycling'74, and Access, to see if anyone had experience with both. Cycling told me to try posting here. Access said:
"Thank you for your mail. Whenever the TI is used in a sequencer via its Total Integration, then the TI
transmits its knob movements in the automation event format of the sequencer it is used in.
Unfortunately we can't be of much help as we have no experience with Max/MSP at all. It is really
hard to say how you'd have to do this. I really don't know."
So, does anyone have any experience with this, or knowledge about how difficult it is to work? (I could use Live as a go-between, since the TI works well with Live...but I think that would present some limitations).
Thanks in advance...
