• These are the slides used for the presentation I made at Cycling's Expo '74 in New York on October 15, 2011, titled "Making A Slick Max Standalone: Tips and Tricks." Many people that create Max standalones like to present as professional a package as possible, mimicking other applications that users routinely encounter.

  • bc.granulator

    bc.granulator-stereo.maxpat and bc.granulator-surround.maxpat stereo and 5-Channel surround soundfile granulators screenshot here Notes on the patches -       Both patches are essentially identical except for the method of spatialisation -       The patches are distributed free for your use, however if you do something cool with them, I’d love to hear about it -       The patching is not extremely tidy, so I apologise in advance for any confusion if you decide to ‘pop the hood’ -       These patches have been tested on MaxMSP 5.1.2 on Mac OSX 10.6.8 only.

  • pucktronix.golgi.apparatus

    pucktronix.golgi.apparatus is a cellular automata-based music sequencer application, with OSC output. The interface is divided into two parts - the “world” on the left, and the control panel on the right. You can interact with the “world” in two ways, toggled by the checkbox on the bottom of the control panel - labeled “Toggle Block / Cell Draw Mode” While the box is unchecked, clicking in the “world” will toggle grid cells - a cell can be either “active” or “dead”. If the box is checked, clicking and dragging the mouse will draw a colored block over the “world” - up to 8 blocks can be added / edited with the “Block Number” buttons below the checkbox.
