Max 6 is the perfect environment for both the musical and visual artist, as both worlds can be combined and separated with infinite possibilities. Throughout the class, we will be building a toolset to analyze music and audio using MSP, emphasizing characteristics like level, dynamics, and spectral analysis. We will then create visual applications for these tools, from basic visualizers to interactive mirrors and openGL, using Jitter’s built-in audio objects and many others. You will be exposed to one of Max’s most important features; its ability to act as a media blender, interweaving one form with another, all in real-time.
This class will begin with basic Max programming, teaching the fundamentals and how a patch works, but will speed up over time to cover more advanced topics. While some experience with Max is very helpful, beginners are welcome.
