No, I don't but I could submit some code that's similar to what I did. The
Blit-based bassline in particular came out nicely, I thought. It glitches as
the waveform resets but the JCRev can turn those clicks into a nice effect
(as long as you mind the gains!).

Imulses are great for exciting filters. ResonZ does need a fairly large gain
boost before it's loud enough if excited with only a Impulse.

Yes, that was the exact case here. Marcel, who organsed this, teaches MAX so
most competitors were his students. MAX is great, nothing wrong with that,
but I would've liked more diversity in this competition (I saw one other
night as a spectator). After this finale I suspect next season will see more

I do know that most of those students also get courses on SC so that would
also be a likely system to be used next season as well. That's good, I
think. IMHO not all MAX users were playing up to MAX's speciffic advantages
like I did with ChucK's, using the physical modeling and re-sampling the
output. I think that would likely change when more systems enter.
