    Max is used as a graphic interface for a custom C external.

      Thank you, very interesting ! I did not know about the Phonogene. Groundbreaking machine for its time.

      I must mention that this can alias pretty hard if you try to do anything radical.
      I'm just resampling the input (using cubic interpolation) to oversample it into a buffer, to get some wiggle room for changing the "speed" of the tape.
      Sometime soon a manual.
      Also, I have a prototype that uses sinc interpolation that I could never quite get to work - open to collaboration if anyone wants to help with some coding.
      The keyboard shortcuts combined w/ mouse movement really help this become a playable piece of software.

      I would love to see a manual. I am swimming in the program from time to time, which is a blast, but maybe even some simple video tutorials would give me the tools to take it further. I appreciate the nod to early electronic music. That's where most of my interest lies and so my digital prowess is pretty lacking.

      sorry! - website is down for redesign
      if you send me an e-mail, I can send you a .rar or .zip of the program, source code if you want that sort of thing.
      Best, Tristan

      Hey Tristan, any chance of getting this patch?
    • Nov 17 2015 | 3:22 am
      Hi all -
      It's really great that so many people are interested in this, and sorry for the radio silence - my computer was stolen last year, and I've got to dig up the standalone from an old hard drive, but the source was lost - that said I still have the compiled objects, and they should work on most macs.
      I'm working on a gen version that uses sinc instead of cubic interpolation, but I've built on the example in the gen folder, which has no anti-aliasing. More on that soon! If anyone knows how to properly anti-alias that example, i'd love to chat.
      Hopefully I'll be able to post a new link to the standalone or original patch this week!
    • Dec 16 2015 | 3:06 pm
      I would really like to get a hold of this. My email address is, if you or anyone else could send me this, that would be great. Thanks!
