Chapter 07 of VJ Manzo's book Max/MSP/Jitter for Music is about Control Interfaces. More specifically, it talks about getting MIDI notes in and out of patches, the use of bpatchers in Max, and send and receive objects for "wireless" transmission within the patch. This is essentially a show-and-tell chapter, as VJ shows what can be done and we just follow along without creating anything new in this case. Nevertheless, there are wonderful concepts and practices in this chapter, a few of which are shown in the images above.
