Abstract

This paper describes a setup for embedding complex virtual instruments such as the physical model of the prepared piano sound synthesis in the sequencing library note~ for Max. Based on the requirements of contemporary music and media arts, note~ introduces computer-aided composition techniques and graphical user interfaces for sequencing and editing into the real time world of Max/MSP. A piano roll, a microtonal musical score and the capability to attach floating-point lists of (theoretically) arbitrary length to a single note-on event, enables artists to play, edit and record compound sound synthesis with the necessary precision.
