Software (Max/MSP): Max Tutorials

Max for Live little-scale: Max for Live Basics Tutorial 1: Sine Wave Synth Overview The aim of this tutorial is to cover the basics of creating a virtual instrument in Max for Live. This tutorial should be seen as a starting point that can be expanded upon. Max for Live is an extension for Ableton Live. This allows users to load patches made in Cycling 74's Max inside of Ableton as Live devices. Max is a graphical programming language whereby patches are created by connecting various objects together. Each object performs a specific function, and multiple objects - interconnected in specific ways - can perform complex operations. In Max for Live, three categories of devices can be created: • Audio effects • MIDI effects • Instruments An audio effect takes an audio signal as an input and outputs an audio signal. A MIDI effect takes MIDI data as an input and outputs MIDI data. An instrument takes MIDI data as an input and outputs an audio signal. This tutorial will cover how to create a simple, monophonic sine wave-based synthesiser from start to finish.

Max Objects Database A collection of resources for Max/Msp MAX/MSP is a graphical environment useful to develop multimedia applications or software for real-time musical compositions. By now it’s one of the most evolved computer tools, widely used by people interested in computer music. Official site of Zicarelli’s company Cycling ’74, that distributes the commercial version. You can find many news and an important section (COMMUNITY) that linked to many interesting sections. If you have money, you can also shop the last version of MAX/MSP and many other products! [December 7, 2013] Max Objects Databse, a site designed to find objects, patches, applications, etc… from Max universe [December 5, 2013] A collection of Max demos oriented on music problems, audio and Midi training: Pitch Shifting with MAX in real time: Six pdf tutorial for beginner users; but, as the author writes, for a MAX/MSP user that “knows what an object and a message are”.

Max Objects Database > mfromage [ 2014-01-02 23:40:51 ]grainbuffer~ has been fixed/updated from original 32-bit version (Max 4.5 & Max 5) to 64-bit (Max 6) version. Source has been migrated to Git Hub. New features include: Multi-channel expansion: option for 1 - 32 channels of spatialized grains, which is specified after the buffer~ name. Everything is updated to 64-bit resolution. The arbitrary limit on the grain pool was increased to allow for higher resolution grain densities. CAVEATS: while the object seems to compile properly in Windows, there was no system available to test the object... so use at your own risk.

Karlheinz Essl: RTC-lib - Real Time Composition Library for Max and Pd (1992-2015) Karlheinz Essl fights for a changing crisis Real Time Composition Library Software library for algorithmic composition with Max copyleft 1992-2015 by Karlheinz Essl and others Index Abstract Content Release Notes (vs. 7.0) NEW History NEW RTC-lib for Windows RTC-lib for Pd (Pure Data) Own works realized by using the RTC-lib RTC-lib Tutorial Video Articles Reviews Download License Abstract This software library - a collection of patches and externals for Max/MSP (an interactive graphical programming environment for multimedia, music, and MIDI running on a Macintosh; © by IRCAM / Cycling74) - offers the possibility to experiment with a number of compositional techniques, such as serial procedures, permutations and controlled randomness. The Real Time Composition Library (RTC-lib) was developed during my extensive work on Lexikon-Sonate (1992 ff.), an interactive realtime composition for computer-controlled piano.
