  1. Max/MSP + Wacom Hijinks »

    Feb 05, 2011

    In follow up to a meeting I had with Robin Bargar on Monday, I spent this week constructing a suitable control environment utilizing max/msp and my Wacom tablet. Essentially, I’m using my Wacom pen and the parameters it outputs (x pos, y pos, x tilt, y tilt, pressure, z-axis, etc) as real-time control knobs to […]

    This past week we did thesis class double duty, holding court two days in a row. This presentation was a big one, but not the Big One. We’ve been prototyping and working toward broad stroke executions of our thesis concepts and needed some extra wiggle room to fully describe 2-3 execution concepts each. In the […]
