Assignment 5 - My first Sequencer
Due on Sunday, November 30, 2008 @ midnight

Description

In this assignment, you will be building a sequencer in Max/MSP. A sequencer is a program that acts like a tape recorder for MIDI signals - it can record MIDI signals that it receives on its input and can play them back on its output.

Your MIDI sequencer will be able to record at least 10 notes (pitch values) and play them back in the correct order. You will be building this sequencer using basic Max/MSP objects such as int, metro, table, gate, pack or funbuf. Don't use the premade sequencing objects like seq or timeline!

You may also want to read the MAX tutorials 21 and 30.

Some ideas for extra credit for this assignment:

  • Recording and playback of arbitrary length sequences
  • Preserving the original timing of MIDI events
  • Recording of multiple voices
