max/msp External 2
Development of a SPEAR-data max/msp external
Applications and Examples
These are very basic examples of how you might develop an external to
read and resynthesize/manipulate SPEAR resample-frames text data files.
They actually work! Yay! BIG CAVEAT, however: some of the
coding I did is Not Recommended -- I did some things mainly to make clear
how certain operations should happen without wanting to get too bogged-down
in silly syntactical things. So (for instance) don't declare
giant arrays as global, unless they are being accessed by many instances
of the external and it sort-of makes sense in the max/msp C environment
(like the wavetable in basicsine~). My file-reading and parsing
scheme is also fairly ludicrous. Oh well.
As with the earlier
class example, these are CodeWarrior files, and the *.tar.gz versions
do not retain proper resource information for OSX. These *.tar.gz
archives are mainly for Windows-people to grab the code.
