On Richard David James's SoundCloud account named "user18081971", he mentions the use of MSP on the comments: "also loads of you interested in the setup..running a few progs, Traktor/msp and eurorack modular..dont often use Traktor but its ok but pisses me off it doesn’t do multiple bpms per track, come on NI get with the ‘programme’ will put a modular grid config up to shut you all up :)"more
"...For over 10 years, we had played with software made by Sascha, Safety Scissors, and Joshua "Kit" Clayton. It's based on Max MSP and it's a simple eight-track live looper. You put loops in and they are all in sync. It can play them half time, double time—you can make funny, simple things."more
Q: You've previously talked about working with presets. There's a producerly orthodoxy that you should steer clear of the presets. But that doesn't seem to worry you so much. A: Another thing I did on this record: with **Ableton Live and with Max For Live** there's lots of great ways to control the parameters using different types of LFOs and randomisers and envelope followers and stuff like that.more
"The EIS began with awareness and use of the delay that could be heard between the record and playback heads on reel to reel tape machines that is now emulated and elaborated in Max/MSP software." Also in an interview included in the book "Pink Noises", by Tara Rodgers: "It’s a long history of how things change from analog to digital. I still work with a hybrid kind of thing. I’m using Max, I’m using the computer as a programming and processing environment, but I’m still playing the accordion, which is a nineteenth-century instrument. All the sound is derived from acoustics rather than from electronics, but I use the computer system to process the sound. There’s still plenty of places for me to go, even."more
FJO: How many different programs are you using to make this all happen simultaneously? I see you have Max/MSP open. IM: For the music, this is all Max/MSP; the controller is Max/MSP and Jitter. And this is another effect. And I use GRM [plug-ins], and in that way I relate to physical musicians, but otherwise I’m not really physical at all. For the visuals, it’s a whole bunch of things made using FinalCut and then Flash to put together the animation.more
