Project Update November 19th 2010

Parsing XML Data directly into Max/Msp

(This post has since been updated, click HERE to view the updated max/msp patch) Had quite a busy and stressful week, working very long hours each day trying to parse XML data from Pachube directly into Max/Msp.

RGB LED

(October 19th 2010) I got my delivery of RGB LED’s earlier (from www.oomlout.co.uk) and have spent the evening trying to find a way of implementing them into my Max/Msp patch. I had previously used processing to light regular LED’s, but the RGB LED’s were a bit more tricky to control from Max. I used Maxuino […]

Project Update (Oct 1st 2010)

(Click the image above to view in fullsize) I’ve spent the past few days completely redesigning the interface for my project. I’ve removed the sine-wave displays and opted for a much simpler interface. I redesigned it in Max/Msp, using a world map (with a Creative Commons license) and also made each point on the map […]
