Glitch Factory: APC40 Performance Template internet-sensors Update 9/8/2013 – The Twitter examples were broken. They are fixed and have been updated to use version 1.1 of the API (oauth). The projects demonstrate 3 methods of authentication: - the streaming API via php - the REST API via ruby - sending Tweets using (aka cosm/pachube) and as intermediaries. Also a clarification: These tools are not meant to be turnkey Max solutions to using internet API’s. They are more like recipes – some with other ingredients – like php, ruby, or node running in the background as OSC servers. There’s more on the way! tz The Internet is a source of data which reflects the state of our world. These features combine to provide a valuable tool for artists.

Granulator by Robert Henke Granulator II is a Max4Live synthesizer based on the principle of quasi-synchronous granular synthesis. It creates a constant stream of short crossfading sections of the source sample, and the pitch, position and volume of each grain can be modulated in many ways to create a great variety of interesting sounds. Granulator II also offers two multimode filters in series to further shape the resulting timbre. Granulator II is the latest incarnation of a series of granular based synthesizers I wrote for my own usage since the additon of real time audio processing to Max in 1997. [0] Listen to a more complex sound example of Granulator with a singing bowl as sound source embedded in a bit of long reverb. ____________ D o w n l o a d _ G r a n u l a t o r _ I I _ h e r e_______________ This instrument is the result of lot of love and dedication. In case you really enjoy the instrument, and you are going to use it for your own artistic works, I would love to get something back from you.

stock market music with Max/MSP | ideas This a project which makes music from stock prices. See this page for a full description and case study: What’s missing from the above description is a technical reference manual and user guide. I intend to make this into a web-app which can be used for listening to stock trends, but it in the meantime here’s how it works. To look at historical trends, you would need access to historical stock data. However, it doesn’t cost money to get recent quotes from Yahoo throughout the day and store them in a database – so that’s the approach I took. If I were to do this project today, I’d look for a free online source of historical data, in machine-readable form – because the historical data provides the most interesting and organic sounds when converted into music. files all of the files have been moved to tkzic/w3 for now.
