mlr-tutorial with serialosc?

  • Hi,

    I'm new to Max and monome, and I'm trying to figure it all out. Has anyone completed the mlr-tutorial with serial-osc?( I'm trying to figure out how to read buttons, but I can't figure out the 'serialosc development tools' ( patch to try to figure out how to complete the tutorial. If you've done this, I'd love to see it.

    I'd also like to find the most simple Max for live patch that reads buttons and launches clips, so that I could unlock that and figure out how to do that.

    Thanks for any help, or links,


    Edit: Links.

  • the tutorial was written for monomeserial protocol, so if you want to adapt it to serialosc, see- at the bottom there's an 'updating-monomeserial-apps'.maxpat.

    i've also been looking for a simple max for live clip launcher, but the only thing i found was here-
    …and could never get it to work.

  • Thanks elquinto.

    I'll look at the link for adapting to serialOSC. I've been messing for hours with the 'serialosc development tools.' It took me that long to figure out how to light up an LED and how to receive the coords of a button press.

    I'm still trying to figure out why my app is called /example, or where I set that.

    I'd love a simple clip launcher M4L device. Something with clip launch buttons and mixer_device volume increment ++ and --. Sometimes all I need is to launch clips and adjust the volume of tracks. Also switching around in different pages and modes gets me lost quickly.

    Thanks for your help, and thanks for posting all the M4L device ports earlier.


  • insanity comes to mind. but the clips are being mapped manually. then there is pages, that lets you do all kinds of live remote stuff (and much more, but nothing prevents you from using it as a single page app like you prefer)

    I totally see the need for live control with the monome, but I always found it to be a bit of a waste of fancy buttons. A Launchpad mini lets you launch clips for a fraction of the price.

    DIY is definitely the way to go!

  • @elquinto
    for the m4l cliplauncher you may want to check 'stark audio tools' on docs.

  • I was looking at the stark audio tools, it looks like the video is gone.

  • too bad, I really liked the video demonstration and the tune...

    Basicly stark audio tools allow you to define areas of whatever size you want on your grid to trigger ableton live clips (clip mapper modul) or send midi notes (noisemaker modul), including 3 pattern recorders per area.
