(maxmsp) Lecture Notes: coll, iter, key, timer

Uncommented patches are in iLocker. Look for day7x-scratch.txt files. (3 files) Commented versions will follow.

New objects:

  • coll: stores lists of data with arbitrarily assignable index symbols. Lists don’t have to be same length, and through the intelligent use of symbols you can recall data with musically meaningful names.
  • iter: like unpack, it breaks a list into individual messages. Unlike unpack, the list can be of arbitrary length (not previously specified). The individual messages in the list are sent out one after another immediately out the one outlet.
  • key: allows for keyboard input from computer keyboard. Use the ASCII codes for cross-platform compatibility. You can use select to look for a particular key.
