Re: Trying to create a VU meter that sends midi CC (audio>midi)

Awesome, this seems to work as is, I got three bands of audio sending different values to an LED via Arduino!!! Only problem is all that data is causing bottlenecks to the point of crashing live. Definitely will be looking into some ways to limit the data points..

Re: Trying to create a VU meter that sends midi CC (audio>midi)

A couple of issues.... The output from the vu meter is between 0. and 1. So you need to multiply the output by 127 and then convert to a integer. Also, there's an easier way of creating the cc pair using a message object. I have altered one of the routings in you patch and pasted below. Let me know...

Trying to create a VU meter that sends midi CC (audio>midi)

I created the device below using the multiband Max for Live example and a few other objects. Basically the idea is to take audio, split it into frequency bands, measure the dBs and then convert that number to a midi CC by banging a static CC number and grabbing the value from the dBs. Once the midi ...

Re: Using Maxuino to trigger an LED light show

Ok I messed around a bit more with it and I was able to get midi clips to play. Nothing to do with configuring the midi outs though. Per this page , it's using OSC routing to accomplish this so there was no need to send midi out at all and I was able to get the light show going :D Still just switche...

Re: Using Maxuino to trigger an LED light show

I would like to have clips with either notes or automation (or both) triggering the lights but I can't figure out how to make this happen. The obvious thing would be to open up the device and turn it into an instrument that can "play" the data to send to the arduino but the device seems to be froze...

Using Maxuino to trigger an LED light show

So I just picked up an arduino this week and I was able to get the Maxuino device to talk to it and light up as well as fade in/out various LEDs. The problem I am having is that the device is set up with faders that can be mapped to a controller or even to midi notes coming in, but I can't seem to g...

Re: Real-time vocal transformer/pitch "robotize"

I created a smart harmonizer for trumpet that basically does this in real time, though I don't know how great it would sound with vocals. Also I'm fairly certain someone who knows what they're doing in M4L could come up with a much more efficient way of doing it. Anyway I don't have access right now...

Re: Is there a way to modify just the duration of midi notes?

Just wanted to thank broc for a workable solution and everyone for their comments. I did an in-class demo yesterday at Dubspot and got some comments about this sound specifically!

Re: Is there a way to modify just the duration of midi notes?

I think it can be done by delaying the note off (velocity 0) events, like this. <pre><code> ----------begin_max5_patcher---------- 458.3ocuUF0aBBCDG+Y3Swkl8vVhyzh.p6gkr80Xwrfvo1EnkH0LcF+tuRAm tIp04FgDtziqs+ue8txZWGxX4Rrf.O.u.NNqccbLtJc3TO1gjEsLNMpvDFIV lkgBEoS02T3RkwuPpPPNYBjfoQqfayJtaaLhEYbQJpLK.q...

Is there a way to modify just the duration of midi notes?

I'm looking to add a few hundred ms to the duration of midi notes in real time. I'm playing midi guitar and would like to get some glide between notes played on the same string- this seems like the only way to do this for most synths. I know that for instance the makenote object can create a note wi...

Re: Is it possible to set effects on/off as momentary not toggle

another is just setting your midi controler as momentary, most can today. they usually provide a buildin or software editor where you can choose mesage type and togg/momentary for each buttons/pads. what is your controller? Mine is 10 years old so I'm pretty sure it doesn't, I think this is somethi...
