The SFA-MaxLib is a collection of Max/MSP objects developed in the context of the VCI4DMI. It includes functions and utilities in the form of FTM externals, FTM abstractions and Max abstractions. FTM is a shared library for Max/MSP developed by IRCAM, which provides a small and simple real-time object system and a set of optimized services to be used within Max/MSP externals.

List of FTM Externals: sfa.eig - eigenvalues; sfa.inputcombinations - combination generator; sfa.levinson - levinson-durbin recursion; sfa.lpc2cep - lpc to cepstra conversion; sfa.rastafilt - rasta filter; sfa.rmd - relative mean difference; sfa.roots - polynomial roots;

List of Abstractions: sfa.bark.maxpat - energy of the Bark bands from time domain frame;sfa.bark2hz_vect.maxpat - Herts to Bark conversion;sfa.barkspect.maxpat - energy of the Bark bands from spectrum; sfa.ceil.maxpat - ceil function; sfa.featfluxgate.maxpat - gated distance on stream of feature vectors; sfa.fft2barkmx.maxpat - utility sub-abstraction of sfa.bark; sfa.fft2barkmxN.maxpat - utility sub-abstraction of sfa.barkspect; sfa.hynek_eq_coeff.maxpat - hynek equalization coefficients; sfa.hz2bark.maxpat - Hertz to Bark conversion; sfa.hz2bark_vect.maxpat - Hertz to Bark conversion for vectors; sfa.hz2mel.maxpat - Hertz to Mel conversion; sfa.idft_real_coeff.maxpat - utility sub-abstraction of sfa.rasta-plp; sfa.maxminmem.maxpat - minimum and maximum of a stream of data; sfa.mfcc.maxpat - MFCC coefficients; sfa.modalphafilter.maxpat - 1st order IIR lowpass on a stream of vectors; sfa.nonlinfeqscale.maxpat - linear spectrum to Bark or Mel scale conversion; sfa.rasta-plp.maxpat - PLP and RASTA-PLP coefficients; sfa.spectmoments.maxpat - 4 spectral moments (centroid, deviation, skewness, kurtosis); sfa.3spectmoments+flatness.maxpat - 3 spectral moments (centroid, deviation, skewness) and the spectral flatness; sfa.spectralflux.maxpat - spectral flux on stream of spectrum vectors; sfa.spectralfluxgate.maxpat - gated spectral flux on stream of spectrum vectors; sfa.std.maxpat - standard deviation; sfa.win_to_fft_size.maxpat - smaller FFT size given frame size; sfa.GCemulator.maxpat – 3D gestural controller emulator;

Two externals performing score following on soloist performances using Hidden Markov Models (HMM)
Suivi is based on FTM and requires the shared library FTMlib for Max/MSP. Both externals use an FTM track object - a sequence of time-tagged FTM values - to store the score of the soloist performance to be followed. Notes, trills and other elements of the score are represented by FTM score objects (FTM scoob class). For the moment, scores can be imported from standard MIDI files only.
An editor for the FTM track class, which will also provide a graphical control interface for the score follower is under development as well as the import of MusicXML files.
The suivi object set is distributed within the IRCAM Forum.
