Snake pattern generator --> Push

Post by laurentius » Sat Feb 16, 2019 3:52 pm

I just found this wonderful snake pattern generator:

http://www.maxforlive.com/library/devic ... 4771#12678

Now before I get deeper into programming m4l I would like to ask you guys one or two things:

- Is it possible to use Push's pads to select gates/notes and maybe the encoders to set the individual notes?

- Even cooler would be to set the quantizer notes via midi keyboard or again Push itself.

So far I never programmed any m4l device with Push-implementation. Is it possible to get graphical feedback for the sixteen notes and gates at all?

Yes, its possible but it needs work, you have to "grab" the button matrix or the needed 16 pads and program the logic, like that the light follows the pattern of the sequencer you posted. Having control of the knobs is much easier. Create live.bank object within the patch, save the patch, open the live.banks object and you can assign all controls to banks which will be shown in the chosen order on your Push 2 Screen. One page offers you 8 knobs, so you need to make at least two of them. it might be confusing as well, because the knobs aren't placed the same way as the sequencer steps. anyway, check out the Max helpfiles, they're really great.

Also check out this thread, second posting could get you started. Personally I think this is no trivial task but its certainly doable.

For programming a grid this is very helpful, using a matrix in max you can use all of it to program the Button Matrix on the Push (minus the monome specific stuff in the beginning.

Good luck :)

Thanks @herreinholt!

I thought it wouldn't be an easy task. But if it's doable I'll start diving deeper into this matter.
