The fretbuz_v0.2 files are on github: https://github.com/tkzic/guitar-hero
May need to get the PeRcolate_06 library?

This patch (buzz_360) has issues, but it shows how to use and calibrate a Guitar Hero guitar controller in Max/MSP.
Use /guitarhero/buzz_360_tz3 version
There’s no way to make this work clean for a demo without taking apart the whole button driver patch (buzz_setup_360) and it has some serious max6 compatibility issues. So it just needs to be calibrated everytime for now.
Use the GRY mode for a demo…
Before using patch, restart Max.
Works in Max6 – need to calibrate first, don’t worry about tilt and whammy for this app but you need to calibrate them first anyway by pressing the X toggle, tilt, then unpress, or it wont work. when you calibrate the buttons, the X toggle should disappear. then save and untoggle the config box.
Cool modes: (guitar)
To set a mode,
- hold “back” button
- then hold down the color code keys (for example, RY means “red and yellow”)
- then release “back” button
- RY – solo mode – hold down frets and twiddle
- GRY – 2 hand tap mode – orange does major 3rd up shift – holding flipper down does one button thing – my favorite!
- GB – uses tilt sensor
- also Y – power chords
