UBC Toolbox

    The UBC Toolbox is a collection of 50+ modules that can be used to quickly construct Max patches.  The modules include players (eg. fm players, soundfile players, samplers, granulators, etc.) effects units (reverb, delay, chorus, audio units, etc.) input/output modules (panners, pitch-trackers, network connectors), and other modules.  The modules are added to your patch as bpatchers and are designed to interconnect easily and can be controlled programmatically.  As well, the  modules can be interfaced to NoteAbilityPro music notation program for live performance control.
    The modules can be downloaded from: http://www.opusonemusic.net/muset/toolbox.html. Installation and operation instructions are also included on the website.

      What about Windows (7) users? A comment in the tutorial states 'only for Mac'. Thanks

      Most of the UBC toolbox modules with run on Windows except for a few which use 3rd party externals that don't have Windows versions. It is only the interconnection with NoteAbilityPro that requires Mac OS-X since NoteAbilityPro does not run on Windows.

      The first part of the tutorial uses two bpatchers called FM_PLAYER and SFILE PLAYER which are in themselves MAX patches.. by taking them into "patching mode" i see the effort into creating it.. Thank you.
      MY question is is there a way to see ALL what your toolbox contains, and if so, where or how?
      I am trying to edit the envelope ADSR or modulation INDEX by the way..

      NoteAbilityPro by Keith Hamel is now free, available from http://debussy.music.ubc.ca. This is a full featured notation program, similar to Sibelius and Finale (but more powerful in many ways) that runs on Macs. You can embed Max/MSP/Jitter commands in the score and have those trigger and control events as your score plays. In performance you can use the score for automatic gesture tracking (so your performer's gestures -- bowing, trombone slide position, hand position on keyboard, joint and body position in dance, etc.) can trigger MMJ commands as they play, or you can control the (silent) playback rate to match the performer's location in the score and have the MMJ commands sent at the appropriate times. Supports chamber to orchestral scores, drag and drop audio file playback, exports in a variety of common exchange formats (as well as Guido) and also has conversion between Western and Chinese jianpu notation.

      How do I do to connect Max to NoteAbilityPro?
