Working with Hardware: DMX, Part 1 - Cycling 74 Makers of Max Visual Programming Software for Artists, Musicians & Performers DMX, or more accurately, DMX 512, is a network protocol most commonly used for the control of stage lighting and effects. It is easily programmed in Max, using techniques similar to those used to program MIDI. With your Max skills, you can replace and extend the functionality of dedicated DMX controller/mixer hardware boxes with patches. This is the first article of three in which we shall explore the world of programming DMX with Max. Over the course of these articles, we will present some basic DMX concepts and an introduction to some DMX hardware options that are usable with Max. The second article will feature interviews with Max programmers that have experience with DMX in professional environments. Understanding the DMX Protocol The name “DMX” is short for “Digital Multiplex”. In a typical DMX 512 network, devices are daisy chained together. Here’s a picture of the simple DMX network we used to make the video. As an example, if we send a DMX packet with the following data: Stay Tuned

El pasado agosto, a través de las cuentas anuales, la compañía ya revelaba que estaba planeando lanzar su servicios de música en Canadá y otros países de Asia y América del Sur. Durante la pasada semana, según el Wall Street Journal, Spotify añadió el español a la lista de idiomas disponibles en la aplicación para iOS.

Tamora Pierce On The Reason Her Brilliant Books Haven’t Been Brought To The Screen (Yet) Tamora Pierce has written dozens of incredibly-beloved medieval fantasy books about young women doing amazing things. So why, in this era of wildly-successful YA and fantasy book adaptations, do Pierce’s books remain un-filmed? Pierce, who says she gets asked this all the time, had the following to say over on her LiveJournal about her characters’ lack of screen time: My film agent tells me that the largest barrier to my getting a film deal is one of the things my fans like best: the fact that, for 14 of my Tortall books, and 10 of my Circle books, there is a good chance the reader will encounter friends from the earlier books. Tragically, I don’t doubt that Pierce’s agent is correct; but that’s why I’ve always thought her books would work better as a TV show, anyways. To her credit, Pierce takes it all incredibly well. When I’m not writhing with envy, I actually don’t much mind.

Netherland Samantha was sitting on a lawn chair in her parents’ garage, smoking a joint, when she decided to run away. She had just graduated from high school, where she had few friends, and felt invisible. She went to class stoned and wrote suicidal poems about the shame of being molested by a family friend: “why try when there is no hope / for my dirty soul there is no soap.” The thought of remaining in her home town, in central Florida, made her feel ill. Reclining in her chair in the brightly lit garage, she closed her eyes and thought, Is this going to be my life? Samantha had got A’s in high school and had planned to escape to college, until she realized she couldn’t afford it. Throughout the summer of 2009, Samantha researched the logistics of being homeless in New York, reading all the articles she could find online, no matter how outdated. In a purple spiral-bound notebook, she created a guide for life on the streets. Samantha found her roommates tough and moody but supportive.

babbel by Ed M Wood As I settled into the barber’s chair and once again attempted to allay my long-held fear of a man with a sharp implement in his hand and questionable politics, I readied my mind. I had been coming to this barber ever since my follicles first demanded it, but had never satisfactorily fielded his cutting remarks, which, just like his politics, had not become blunted with time. I knew it would be particularly difficult on this occasion. I was visiting family in England having just moved from Spain to Germany. So young man, what are you doing with yourself these days? Teaching is a virtuous occupation, I thought. A terrible entry point. The meaning of cool has changed since my day, if clunky is the new cool. He didn’t use the word clunky. Uh huh. Oh but I do! 1. tollpatschig (adj.) - clumsy Patsch means something along the lines of “splat”; the sound a viscous liquid makes on impact. 2. das Kopfkino (noun) - the head cinema 3. die Naschkatze (noun) - the gnash cat

Use MaxURL to Create a Realtime Instagram Collage New with Max 6.1.7, the maxurl object gives you the ability to easily connect Max with the web using HTTP messages. If you’ve been thinking about creating a crowd-sourced multimedia patch or a data-driven interactive work, now is a good time to give it a shot. To demonstrate one possible direction, in this tutorial we’ll look at creating a Jitter collage with Instagram photos. If you haven’t looked inside the maxurl help patch, I recommend you start there and familiarize yourself with the different tabs. For this tutorial, we’ll be using the Javascript version of the object, XMLHttpRequest (should be familar to anyone doing Web development). Since we’re using the Instagram API to run this, you will need to visit the Instagram developer site to get your own API client ID. Once we’ve got the image files downloaded we can just take advantage of the auto-populate feature of umenu in our Max patcher to create an easy interface to randomly load those image files in

Equalify, ecualizador de diez bandas para Spotify ¡Por fin es viernes! Como sabéis, todos los viernes trato de escribir una nota con la que empezar el fin de semana de buena gana: La semana laboral ha terminado y aunque tengamos que atender a otras obligaciones, seguramente podamos sacar un momento para disfrutar de nuestro ordenador y de contenidos como vídeos, textos o música. Y en la música hay actualmente un servicio que destaca respecto al resto: Spotify. Spotify es el más popular de los servicios de música en streaming, y por eso en Bitelia tratamos de hacer un seguimiento de todas las novedades que van surgiendo al respecto. Equalify es una utilidad que hará las delicias de los más exigentes, ya que añade un ecualizador de diez bandas con el que controlar el sonido de Spotify y dejarlo a nuestro gusto. Es importante que a la hora de instalarlo cerremos por completo Spotify para que el setup pueda proseguir sin problemas.
