I have an ER-301, and can record CV there, and also manipulate it in time and frequency domains. Even slice it.
So why Max? Because I had the idea that it would be interesting if CV recorded in Max could be represented as a spline curve, with handles that could be used for editing. It would be nice to be able to do all the things you can normally do to automation curves in a DAW.
I don’t know enough about Max to know how hard this idea would be to implement. Any particular objects/patchers I should take a look at?
Ah, I see. I don’t know anything in Max that will translate a stream of data into useful curves like that. You could ‘record’ points into the function object, but it would be more like if you record from faders into a DAW - lots of points, one for every change, rather than nice curves you can edit.
I’m not sure how the Live API works but I wouldn’t expect you’d have to go through a MIDI translation (but maybe @ithkaa, @chapelierfou or another M4L guru could chime in). All of that said, I’m not sure this can be done out of the box but my gut says it would be easier to figure out how to map OSC to automation breakpoints/curves in M4L than build up all the UI around editing curves provided in Max.
A couple of questions:
I’m assuming this is for recording arc gestures?
do you want to audition recorded gestures “live” as applied to whatever parameter they’re affecting or is it sufficient to capture a stream of events and then edit/apply them?
I really don’t know how Live got into this. There are no clips. Not necessarily any use of Live at all. I merely showed a screenshot of a Live automation curve to make it clear what user experience I was looking to create in Max.
My bad. My head has been in Live and I saw your screenshot and jumped to a hasty conclusion. It also has the benefit of supporting a bunch of what you’re after out of the box. That said, if it’s off the table, so be it! (And sorry for the derail.)
It doesn’t do what I’m after out of the box at all. Not with CV. This is a thread about hybrid modular systems (systems that use eurorack and in-the-box software in an integrated manner).
See this thread for more context.
The new “Studies” category was added to facilitate easier discovery of technical discussion of patching techniques (not necessarily just for hybrid systems, but that is what inspired it). Other uses for the category include things like
It would probably get convoluted pretty quickly, but you could possibly record CV and store it in a [buffer~] with [poke~], and then change/alter its output with [peek~] and [function]… it would be great to be able to record into a buffer and output that as a breakpoint envelope, but I don’t think that functionality exists.
