the barcode project

Every currently playing song/artist has to be typed in and will be visible on a big screen . Not all dj’s wanted to do this extra work . They idea was to create custom made barcodes for all the songs. Which could be scanned by the dj with a barcode scanner . The only problem was , we had to enter all off the songs/artists in a database….
Which was to much work and the project stopped. Today the djs just manualy type in the artists/songs which worked fine .
There are two maxpatches in the zip :
cyberbarcode1.0 (the above picture) this will create barcodes and puts them in a matrix which has the size of an a4 paper (for printing).
barcreader will read the barcodes and put them in a coll . This coll will be the database…
the zip: barcodes
update : i also found this file :1000barcodes.maxpat it creates a 1000 barcodes as separate jpegs …
