Multitouch Rotary Dial and X-Y Granular Exploration

With help from Josh Clos I have shot a short video documenting what my latest MaxMSP project does.

It’s a sort of swiss army knife of wavetable glitch machine and sample scrubbing tools. Hopefully the video will shed some light on what this project is about. I’ve been trying to describe it in a few other posts without much success, but seeing it in action seems to make a bit more sense.

The next step invovles integrating this tool into the Five Output Atemporal Looper i describe in my last entry.

For more information check out some of the related posts including Physically Modeling Multitouch Controls, Traversing Samples with Granular Synthesis, and TouchOSC Controlled Glitch Looper in MaxMSP.

  1. John, this is great stuff that you are doing with Max/Msp and TouchOSC.

    If you are willing to share, I’d love to see more info on how you get that scrubbing to work so flawlessly.

    I’ve been looking forward to seeing your new patches each week. Thanks.

  3. Hey Max. Thanks for the note. At some point I’ll try and make a quick abstraction that only includes the scrubbing feature and include it with a new entry here.

  7. Hey, great stuff! I was just wondering how you managed to implement the JavaScript to control the wheel friction. Where is the JavaScript held?
