Re: My Revised MAX/MSP Looping/Effects Rig

Hi Kevin - max/msp will run VSTs. It's just a simple patch that you 
construct that runs the VST. I run Reaktor as a VST inside max/msp, and 
to run tons of VST effects before I started creating my own on max.  And, 
course, if you have time, you could write a max patch that notes your 
There is really not a lot of limitation to what you can do, if you have 
time and the technical acumen.  If you can't build it in max, then folks 
write their own "externals" for max, which is getting closer to real 
programming. I don't know what they use to write the externals, but it 
be Visual Basic or C++. Stefen (both on this list) would know. I know it's 
now assembly language!!! :)

Enjoyed listening to this -- kind of like real-time musique concrete.

This year I promised myself that I wouldn't acquire any new hardware
or software -- that I want to master the equipment that I have.
Having said that, I keep visiting the MAX/MSP website and may break
down and get it.

The only "hold up" is that I like to notate my music and max/msp
doesn't have notation.  If it would run as a VST plugin, then I could
manage the Notation on the Cubase side and the processing on the
MAX/MSP side.
