What are you building with C and C++ externals?

      I'm working on the second release of Scheme For Max, an embedded lisp interpreter for Max. :-) https://github.com/iainctduncan/scheme-for-max

      I have dug out some of my very old C source code which I used to build MAX externals with one of the first Opcode MAX versions of the mid-1990s at CNMAT (UC Berkeley).
      I was surprised how easy it was to build the 64-bit external with the 8.0.3 SDK and load my orignal, almost 25 year old MAX patches into MAX 8. My future MAX projects will include gesture/motion MIDI controllers,

      Wow, both sound like great ideas. Im not sure what to do yet. Will give it some more thought.

      If you're just getting going with it, the Eric Lyon book is really good, and so is going through the examples that come with the SDK.

      @Iain Thanks for your infos - I will check out 'Designing Audio Objects for Max/MSP and Pd' soon. As I am now up and running with the MAX 8 SDK, I will also look into your 'Scheme-for-Max' as well!
      I am also intending to interface MAX with a Raspberry PI and a motion sensor - that is at the moment a C++ application. Fun, fun, fun!
      Cheers,
