MaxMSP patch without pre-recorded audio files (476 KB)
MaxMSP measures the acoustical properties of the clarinet in real-time in order to control both physical-modelling synthesis and digital signal processing of an internet audio stream. In the former case, the acoustical readings from the clarinet will be mapped to the synthesis parameters of the physical model. In the latter, the audio signal of the clarinet will select sound fragments from the audio stream as well as determine how the audio is processed during playback. Selections of the audio stream can either be realised automatically, via the MaxMSP patch, or selected by another person during the performance. In either case, iRecord needs to be set up properly such that it is recording audio in one-minute segments, with the file names: 001.aiff; 002.aiff; 003.aiff; etc.. In addition, the recorded audio must be in the file search path of the MaxMSP application. Alternatively, the MaxMSP patch comes with pre-recorded audio files; therefore, the piece can also be performed without a connection to the internet.
