Voice controlled Pong – open source Max/MSP patch

We have created an alternative approach for this (worldwide) known problem. We made a MaxMSP patch that does the FFT analysis and sends a OSC package to flash (with the help of a small java application). MAX/MSP sends the Amplitude and the pitch of a stereo signal (left and right). So, now we could use the input of the microphone to make a two-player game. If you only have one input they will both send the same data. In fact you will only get four parameters in flash, you can do whatever you want with it (be creative)!
