Max/Msp Video Tutorials


Baz has very generously created a large number of Max/Msp tutorial videos. So far it's up to tutorial 10 with a couple of parts to each tutorial. According to Baz there is going to be "a ridiculous amount" of tutorial videos. Not a substitute for the 100 or so text/patch tutorials that come with the software but if you are just downloading the 30 day Max/Msp demo and want to get up and running without getting bogged down in lots of text tutorials then this is the way to go. 

The first tutorial is a basic sine wave oscillator and it works it's way through subtractive synthesis, tutorial 8 shows how to make a polyphonic sampler and the last vid so far is a delay feedback tutorial. Thanks to BazTutorials

that was me last summer.. counting down the days before the demo ran out.

If your thinking of buying it and you are not a student have a look at the offer available from Dance-Tech.net. A guy there called Marlon runs the site and he can get student prices for artists meaning you don't have to be a student and still get the discount. €59 for 9 months and €250 for the lot.

Alright Si...

Maybe ease your way in with a bit of synthedit. It's free and pretty easy to use. Much larger modules which have all of their I/O's labeled. It has a pretty decent granular module by DaveDeHaupt. Can't remember the name of the module but I made a patch with it and it sounds great.

if i managed renoise from scratch, im sure there's hope for me with max!

Im noticing that knowing how a synth works and how the signal flows from osc thru filter an envl really helps out!
