Here comes a new external that helps to create more versatile user interface elements. It can be connected to an existing Max UI object and then respond to more input event types. I hope the help file illustrates to some extent how to put together useful custom controls with it. At the same time I take down the 11mousewheel download because I believe that this external serves the same purpose if mousewheel control is desired.
I'm glad I had the opportunity to develop the hb1Control software with Hornberg Research. hb1 is a nice midi breath controller with some cool features.
The hb1Control software provides you with full control over parameters, presets and preset combinations of the hb1. It also adds features that are not available if the hb1 is used without a computer. The software can be remote controlled with a web browser on (nearly) any device.
On a search for things related to audio metadata extraction i came across MEAPsoft quite a long time ago. I didn't like the GUI and the way it was meant to be used but noticed there has to be some interessting code behind it. The intention was to reuse the open source code in Max someday but my knowledge of any text based programming languages was very limited at that time.
It was this summer that i took part in a 7-week C# course which finally gave me the needed insight into object oriented languages that i was missing to understand the code and to start this project.
It's hard to tell when a private software project is finished, in fact it's never. I decided to share this now because it reached a state where it has all main features of MEAPsoft and some more. In addition many bugs in the MEAPsoft source code have been fixed. And i really need a break from JAVA.
MEAP4Max is nothing to use, it's something to build upon. A tool for the Max community. Have fun.
