Vade has posted a system called v001 for Max/MSP:

v001 is meant to help bring a structured method for building modular and reusable performance patches for Max/MSP and Jitter – it isnt a complete low level programming system like Jamoma (nor meant to replace it), rather an immediately useful set of pre-made objects and patching methodologies. I have found this architecure invaluable for rapidly creating new modules to expriment and integrate into my existing performance system, as well as being able to drastically alter the functionality of my performance patch while still being able to retain all of the previous effects ive generated, without having to re-code anything.

It looks very elegant and seems to work well. v001 is not as big and flexible as Jamoma (it wasn’t meant to be either), but I think there are several things we can learn from:

  • The dynamic approach, and quick update of boxes and menus
  • Consistent fonts and sizes make it very streamlined
  • LFOs can be routed everywhere
