Practical Max #2
For this episode of Practical Max, Stretta builds a sweet-sounding and performance friendly Beat Factory that slices up and processes drum rhythms in real time. To do this, he leverages the pattr-family objects to control a complex set of parameters with a simple user interface. Using this sort of macro-control makes doing complex beat juggling much more manageable, and gives greater flexibility to live performances. Watch the videos to get a peek inside his process and download the patches to make your own morphing beats.
- For best performance, you should turn ON the ‘Scheduler in Overdrive’ and ‘in Audio Interrupt’ options in the DSP status window. You should also have an I/O Vector Size of 64 or greater.
