Max Tap Tempo Calculator Extended

Max Tap Tempo Calculator ExtendedAfter a little bit more work in Max, I’ve extended the tap tempo calculator to diferentiate between semibreves, minims, crotchets, quavers and semi-quavers rather than just displaying the crotchet timing. I have left the big LED in so that it can be compared.

Basically the difference is that now the crotchets are split down into semi-quavers, and from there the metro goes into a counter and to the LED’s which are lit up as the counter counts through them on each beat of the metronome.

Aside from that it remains very simple in what it does – just does it in a slightly more interesting way. I’ll put up some more interesting things done in Max/MSP/Jitter soon, promise.

Max tap tempo calculatorThis 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.
