In MaxMSP it’s very easy to create relatively good looking graphical user interfaces (GUIs) quickly, which no doubt can be very helpful in a lot of situations (user guidance, performance, teaching etc.). But it’s also true, that the display of (especially dynamic) graphics taxes the CPU quite a lot.
Lately Benjamin and I went into the studio and had a little recording session of our duo improvisation work. Here is a 95 seconds summary…
Recently I’ve been playing a live solo set, which I haven’t done for a long time. On the whole the trip to Mannheim was worth it and fun to do – thanks to the elektrosmog team – Flo and Volker (the other one) – for inviting me. Here are some excerpts
I’m slowly trying to replace all external objects in my performance system by 64-bit versions, so I can finally run MaxMSP in 64-bit mode. Most of the externals in my setup are from code that I wrote myself – so no big problem updating those. But one of the few externals from other people that i use is the famous sigmund~ object by Miller Puckette.
On a mac the Accelerate framework delivers a lot of very useful DSP functions. Most of them are pretty straight forward to use, some are a little complicated. One of those is vDSP_deq22 / vDSP_deq22D which implements a vectorized 2 pole 2 zero filter (biquad).
I’m moving houses (again…) and while packing up my things I found this collection of old flyers in my drawer. As far as I know they were all handmade by Gilbi Trefzger (Smacks Tracks, Nuns n’ Hoses, Paris Safari), and even back then, I thought that they deserved a longer life time than just being […]
Just a quick av-recording during an impro-session with Jonas Althaus. Jonglage, Jonas Althaus Musik, Volker Böhm
Some time ago there was a discussion on the MaxMSP-forums going on about recreating a specific chaotic oscillator. Actually this goes back to this site: ciat lonbarde, where you can find all sorts of “intuitive analog organs for your atonal/chaos squishing needs” as the author says…
