i have idea for my new project that is related to music, but not in a common sense. concept is not finished yet, but i have some guidelines. i wish to create a software (vvvv patch) to control four printers. they should act like speakers witch will generate patterns writen in a txt (or gif) file, like loops… each printer should represent one channel like in a drum machine
here are some things that it should do:
- control printers in real time, like typewriter
- give them a pattern to print it in a loop
- abbility to smoothly change the patterns
- control them separately
and some questions:
- witch node should i use for sending data to printers, rs232?
- is it possible to control them in real time?
- what would be the best way to create patterns, text, picture or something else?
this is a project that has no deadline, i’ll try to manage it in my free time. any hint is wellcome :)
