    Yes its true, you can run Max Gen patches on the OWL!
    To find out how check out the tutorial:

    OWL Max Tutorial 1: Getting Started

    Or try out some of the examples.

    Hi,
    wonderful! Is it possibile either to write max patches for the OWL pedal too or only for the rack module?

    Best wishes,
    Walter

    Yes it is, the same patches will run on the Pedal and the Modular

    I see in the Midi specification that there are control change messages mapped to more than just Parameters A-F. Can these be used int he gen based patches? If so, is it just a matter of using the correct name? Lastly, if this is possible are the values mapped 0-1 or do I have to set the range 0-127?

    Thanks

    At the moment the Gen patches support parameters A to H, and Push.
    In Gen simply declare a parameter with the right name, and set the min, max and default values that you want: incoming MIDI values will be automatically scaled (default range is 0.0 to 1.0).

    Will the other CC’s be accessible by gen~ patches anytime soon?

    and note on / offs?

    Would be great to be able to pass MIDI Notes to a Gen patch, but there’s no obvious way to do this in Gen.

    We could define a pair of parameters, e.g. Pitch and Velocity, to hold the value of the most recently received note (as MIDI note values, with Velocity=0 for off). That would probably work well enough for making monophonic synths (with no pitch bend), but what about polyphony?

    Thanks Martin, does pd have access to the AA AB etc Parameters or just the first 8 and push?

    Pd patches currently get the first 8 and Push, same as Gen. But Pd also gets MIDI note messages.
    I’d like to revisit how parameters are done both on Pd and Gen, so that more parameters can be mapped without incurring performance overheads for patches that don’t use them. But both Pd/Heavy and Max Gen have some quirks.

    The same, by the way, applies to Faust.

    Are gen~ generated patches running more smoothly in general? I seem to run into cpu heavy things with Pure Data compiled patches oftenly and wonder, if that could be improved by using gen~ instead.

    Thanx in advance!

    I think it depends a lot on what objects and structures you use, but I’m not an expert on Pd or Gen.
    We are working on improving performance across all platforms, to make smaller, faster code, but I can’t promise anything concrete just yet.

    Sounds splendid!
