Shruthi-1 with MAX patch - first effort!

after finally sorting out the resistors which i’d put in the wrong places, i have hooked my shruthi-1 up to a max patch i hacked together - not being much of a midi person this is all new territory for me.
anyway, here’s avideo:

If you want i have an alpha test of a M4L patch with almost shruthi parameters implemented…

oh wow, 'looks great!
i don’t own Live or M4L though… :frowning:
have been playing on the demo only.

i’ll have to investigate the costs.

EATYone: I downloaded your last plug but because I’ve never used M4L before I don’t know what to do with those files. Also haven’t spent too much time with Live in general lately so placing the files isn’t really what’s been keeping me. But maybe for myself and others could you be so kind to fill me in?

Nice vid sync.

Sorry not enough time toonight to make a real tut, but it’s really easy if u got M4L:

  • create a midi track
  • Drag the .amxd direclty on it, from the finder or from the live’s browser
  • Select your midi out port on the midi track

And that’s done, u’ve got a plug to use like any other AU/VSTi , automation, …

Really nice work!
Thank you very much, as soon as I receive and prepare my kit, I’ll be trying this MAX patch.

I wonder if the Shruthi-1 could be linked via OSC to a Iphone/Ipod Touch to give additional visual feedback and controls at the same time as portability (without needing a whole computer).

@EATYone – where’s your Shruthi patch? You might be able to save me some time, as I plan on trying to create a Max standalone (like I did for the WTPA: )

I CAN post it, but there’s some bugz on it, but nô Time to fix them. If i remember some nrpn haven’t got good scale, and some others prob…all Cc are good…and for the shruti without H nô nrpn but all cc ok…

OK - if I get time myself, I will start on mine, and then if you share yours, we can compare notes…

here we go

For the maxpat file, in order to use them you will need to add a midi selector in/out.

Thanks EATYone, I gave it a look. Did you find that you needed all those speedlim’s because the Shruthi choked on the MIDI stream if not?

Doh! I don’t have Live 8. :frowning:

KSD just use the MAX patch and not the max for live one. You just need to download the Max Runtime (free)… If some of you are interested to use it without m4l tell me, i’ll do the midi output/input things you need to use it…

i’d be happy with a version to run in max/maxruntime with midi in/out :slight_smile:
i’ve not had much time, but have opened both ‘Shruti1.maxpat’ and ‘Shruthi1_ALPHA2.maxpat’ and don’t have the ‘Live.dial’… where’s that supposed to be?

i’ve had a quick play with Strettas polygome and guess a combo with your patch would be great fun!

thanks in advance :slight_smile:

ok i will work on it

woop woop!
thanks :slight_smile:
in the meantime, am i able to add dials in place of these juibogus objects…?

(how do these pics work…?)

Look beneath the textbox to the right an click on Textile Help

Yeah you can replace live dial by normal dial, but don’t care of this, i’am re build it entierly for MAX, and i think i can post it perhaps toonight or tommorrow night if my children let me some time to do it :smiley: Wich one do you prefer in first Shruthi or Shruti?

In progress…

hi, i’d be happy with Shruthi to match the machine i built, if that’s answering the question correctly :wink:
looking forward to this, i wish i had more time to build stuff with MAX, this could be a help!
thanks in advance!
