When Cycling74 and Ableton teamed up to release Max for Live, it suddenly became possible to do unheard of things inside Ableton Live.  Max for Live lets you turn Ableton into a live video performance system, build your own Live instruments and effects from scratch, control faders and dials with a wave of your hand or the motion of a dancing crowd, sidechain any effect to anything… the possibilities for new creative expression are stunning.

Experience Required: Basic familiarity with Max (i.e., having completed the first few tutorials, understanding how to plug objects into each other, and familiarity with data types).

Software Required: Ableton, Max for Live, and Max.  Please note that Max — not just Max for Live — is required if you are interested into doing video processing inside Ableton.
