Research Springboard

To implement a rather robust Markov modeler in Max/MSP we recommend the following 2 part tutorial on YouTube. It covers the use of the Markov object in the ml.star library. Going through this ourselves was fun, we definitely had to pause a lot to double check the patching. After you are done you will have built a patch that can merge, mash up and generate MIDI.

Part 2

We also offer a pre-built patch here. There is a PDF available here that covers how to use it.
