RE: Computers **(MSP)**
What exactly is the equipment needed here to reproduce your experiments?
I think I'll have to get a PowerMac machine -- what CPU, what specs here?
Is the MSP software an individual program, or is it part of the MAX
I'm really interested in finding the details so I can run some
experiments. I've been looking for the very same thing to happen in a
Pentium II-based machine, but haven't.
Thanks for the info!

| Hi loopers,
| I saw the topic of computers come up, and while I have to agree that
| computer synthesis, to this point, has been inadequate (on many
| counts) for
| musical performance. There is something you all REALLY need to check
| It's called MSP ("max signal processing") and is an extension to the
| programming language MAX tha runs on Power PC macs.
| I imagine you can tell I'm excited about this program. I have tried and
| tried to come up with signal-processing or performance tasks that MSP
| could not handle, but I can't. There isn't a device in my studio whose
| functionality could not, in principle be reproduced in an MSP patch.
