Wishlist for an update

Post by pyrolator » Fri Nov 20, 2009 9:02 am

Here are my two top-wishes for an update of Max4Live:

1. Multi-Channel Out

It would be great to be able to route audio from Max4Live into different outputs of Live. It is essential for spatialization and also for multi-channel mixing. It would even help to use "soundflower" within Max4Live, to make routings to other programs or instances of Max/msp.

2. Make the Max-Window bigger.

In Edit-Mode, when the Edit-Window is open there is a certain latency, not usable in Live-situations. For some reasons I do need a bigger view on the max-window. In the moment it is, as all other plugins, in the lower part of the screen - but if it would be sizeable like the waveform-window, this would help a lot in performances.

best wishes

there is another wish:

under Device or DeviceParameter in the API/LOM I would love to have the control of opening the plugin-window (like in CMD+ALT+P), could you add this?

thanks

It's really easy to create devices in floating windows like any usual 3rd party plugin. In this example I've broken out the step sequencer into a floating window and added a few bits of essential functionality.

Thanks Jon, I got it, thats not the problem - but thats why I had this "new wish".....

I want to have certain windows open at startup - not to have to click here and there to get all the windows open I need for a performance. It would be great to get in control of this part of the API to make a setup with all the plugins and max-windows that need to be open....

thanks anyway

@pyrolator, you can probably get what you need out of loadbang and pcontrol objects.

hi andrew,

you are right, i forgot that pcontrol might work with maxforlive as well as in max/msp. thanks.
It would be great to handle other plugins-windows like that wouldn´t it?
