OH GOD – Richie, what have you done? Well actually this has been online since before the Cube-meister's brainwave struck. It's not about who came first though, the key here is 'potential'.
Any Max MSP users out there will know that taking an object meant for one thing and creating a wholly new creative purpose for it is only scratching the surface of what can be done – so I'm excited to see what people come up with - it's not all about 'I iz in Max MSP coding ur patch' yknow. Check out this video of a Max-based software that can send and receive sounds via a Twitter text-code – download it here.
Of course, being part of Max MSP means that it will be inevitably part of Ableton Live once Max for Live launches later this year – more creative options ahead!
