MMF-Fantastick : Max Multitouch Framework for Fantastick on iPad, iPhone & iPod-touch

I’m happy to share this « framework » for Max & Fantastick.
(Fantastick is a free app for iPad, iPhone & iPod-touch : )

MMF-Fantastick is an extension of MMF (Max Multitouch Framework) : a set of abstractions to control max user interface directly within a multitouch screen.

MMF-Fantastick will draw on your iDevice (in Fantastick) a copy of all UI objects of your Max patch, and let you control them directly from the multitouch screen of your device.
It’s really easy to configure, fast, bi-directionnal.. and free !

have a look at this video :

– first, install and configure Fantastick on your iPad ( )
(test it with the maxhelp patch)
– download & install MMF-Fantastick from
(copy it anywhere in your max search path)
– open MMF-Fantastick_template.maxpat

(Fantastick works much better with an ad-hoc WIFI network, without WEP encryption)

MMF (Max Multitouch Framework)


this project was initiated in the Virage project.

The idea : control max user interface directly within a multitouch screen.

This « framework » consists in a set of max abstractions. to « multitouchize » a patch, you just need to place an « mmf.interface » abstraction in your patch, and add to presentation mode and give a name to all the UI object you wish to control with your multitouch screen… and that’s all ! MMF will do the rest…
