Device Overview

Name/Version: BBC FX Downloader 1.1.2
Author: MathieuLd  
Description: Simple device that allows you to download a random sample from the BBC Sound Effect database.
http://bbcsfx.acropolis.org.uk/

/!\ This device require the object node.script to run i.e. Max 8.0.0 or greater
Also the device wasn't tested on Mac

It was made for a school project, the goal was to create a tool that let you use random material as inspiration or constraint in the creative process.

The core of the device is in Javascript. I used Node for Max with the packages request and csv-parser to download the soundfile.

Have fun ;)

Hello

Very nice idea Mathieu.
I had some code in order that it fit for a mac too.
If you need, just ask me at takadimi@free.fr, I will send you the patch.
