MIMS is very much a work in progress, and has seen several implementations and tweaks over the last couple of years. While the tool is destined to evolve into a unified and complete framework for 1D, 2D or 3D mass-interaction models with advanced functionalities, current versions will allow you to start creating physical models and running them either in FAUST (using mi_faust) or in Max/MSP (using mi-gen~).
MIMS_online is still in pre-alpha version, so be kind to the many bugs you might find and please report them to the MI team !
Happy modelling !
Tested in Chrome
MIMS is also available directly inside the mi-gen~ toolkit! It runs on NodeJS (which means it will only run in Max 8) and uses the same scripting and compilation engine as the online version. Models can be compiled to gen~ code or FAUST dsp, and the compiler informs of any errors in real time. A large base of examples using mi-gen~/MIMS4Max are available in the Max package and should help you get started!
MAX 8 running on OsX & Windows
The first prototype of MIMS is based in Python (using PyQt) and was presented in papers in LAC’19 and SMC’19. Although it is still available, it is no longer maintained and certain scripting and compilation features are not supported. We strongly recommend using either the online or the Max-based versions of MIMS as they will continue to be updated, but feel free to check out this old version if you like old-school Qt apps !
