This semester at uni we are looking at graphical programming with Max/MSP/Jitter. This simple little patch is the first one we created as homework. The aim is to take a pair of taps on the bang object and work out the timing between them. The LED object will then flash on every beat.
It is also manually adjustable by changing the BPM or milliseconds in the two float boxes. You can also stop the flashing with the “Stop” button.
It’s very simple and straightforward, but it is a great little program to create as an introduction to graphical programming in Max and getting an idea of how it functions.
