Hi all,

I have started to collect some useful (non-tilde) objects in a library
called "maxlib" which stands for "music analysis extensions library".
Win only at the moment but I'm shure it compiles on Linux... (makefile
might need some changes)

The objects can be very useful to analyse any musical performance. Some
of the objects are 'borrowed' from Max (they are not ported but
rewritten for Pd - cheap immitations). Objects included (more to come
soon, as I find the time to make them 'ready for the masses'):

borax - the "swiss army knife" (Todd Winkler) for music analysis: it
takes pitch and velocity from a notein or makenote and calculates nine
different parameters (identical to the Max object with the same name)

ignore - lets input only get through when it stays unchanged for a
specified time

match - checks whether a list of entering numbers (only floats supported
at the moment) matches its arguments (similar to the Max object with the
same name: we take floats instead of lists as input)

pitch - outputs pitch (MIDI note number and 'real' key name as symbol),
pitch class, interval and register of an incoming note number

speedlim - lets information (floats) through only every N milliseconds,
especially useful to reduce continuos controller data (identical to the
Max object with the same name)
