Device Overview

Name/Version: CamMap 0.1
Author: rickygraham  
Description: CamMap is a simple camera-based control device for Max for Live. The user may map scaled pixel data to any available parameters within Ableton Live with great ease. Smooth controller values using the "scale" device parameter (default is 50). Shorter interpolation times are recommended for tighter coupling (control intimacy).

This control device utilises [cv.jit.mass] from, which can be added to your Max directory. (Linked device is frozen!)

CamMap can be applied to any MIDI or Audio track within Live.

Coming soon: PitchMap v0.1 - Map and morph between pitch contours as a method of performance control using pitch tracking methods in Max/MSP.

Why not "Freeze" your device so the external is included in the .amxd file?

Good idea, Synnack. Done. The linked file is now frozen.

Interesting! Wondering if this patch works with the system's built-in web cam on a typical Macbook Pro laptop?

Hi Per. It should. That is what I am using on the demonstration video on this blog post:


when I load the patch I get this error:
cv.jit.mass: unable to load object bundle executable
2013-04-13 13:03:47.753 Max[12894:f07] Error loading /Users/marcello/Library/Application Support/Cycling '74/temp64-Max/mxt/cv.jit.mass.mxo/Contents/MacOS/cv.jit.mass: dlopen(/Users/marcello/Library/Application Support/Cycling '74/temp64-Max/mxt/cv.jit.mass.mxo/Contents/MacOS/cv.jit.mass, 262): no suitable image found. Did find:

what should i do?

Wallace, this device uses a 3rd party external that is 32bit only. So if you're using the 64bit version of Live and Max, you will get that. See
