midi "polyphony" (puredata)

  • Hey all!

    I've been successfully using my monome 64 for the past couple months with my Gentoo Linux box, serialpyio, and PureData. Been toying around with a few instruments I've made and having loads of fun. But I've just finished watching Stretta's demonstration of his Fourths patch for MaxMSP for the 1000^nth time and I can't take it anymore--I need to replicate that MIDI implementation!

    I've been able to map MIDI notes to each key, but how does one achieve triggering an assortment of notes at once over a number of keys?

    If anyone can explain to me an algorithm for achieving this then I owe you thanks and a beer if you happen to be hanging out in the Bay Area.
