I'll try to get my lazy butt in gear and put some on the web page. Good

yes, you can do this -- I wrote two new ugens (MaxBang and MaxMessage)
that are included in the code. One will send out a scheduled bang, and
the other can send out scheduled lists of values that you computer in
ChucK. I've used this capability a lot with [rtcmix~], and the ability to
use arrays/functions/etc. in [chuck~] suggests that it would be terrific
for this kind of application. max/msp is horrible at maintaining any
semblance of state.
