Following my ten day residency at STEIM which coincided with their second micro-jamboree, I was encouraged to take some of the ideas I presented and form them into tools for use by other people. As such I am releasing a set of java processing/jitter tools for data visualization and interaction.
Radviz max external win32 is the windows mxj java source, classes and Max 5 description patch that I am making available for general use. For mac you just need to recompile the external from within the mxj environment. Their is a readme in the zip file explaining where to put the source .java files within the Max 5 installation forlder.
The amiga forever font that is used inside the description patch is available for mac and pc from the excellent freaky fonts.
I am currently developing this data visualizer to accept input from Tristian Jehan’s analyzer external in a patch that handles realtime segmentation, analysis and database entry of acoustic signals. This will be publicly released shortly in a max patch that showcases this application of the radviz external. I am also developing the visualization of sequence information using the same framework.
Check back here for further updates to this work and feel free to ask questions over installation/use or leave any feedback.
