Gen for non-programmer

July 11, 2013 | 5:58 am

Gen seems very interesting and I consider buying it before the end of the 6 days sale but does it make sense for someone with no programmer background ? For example, I wanted to integrate my video devices in the VIZZable suite but I’ve noticed all the existing modules use Gen. I guess the point is to be able to use code but is it worth working in Gen with object patching ?

Hi Stephane
as someone who would describe himself as being of similar skills – in the digital audio domain – I would simply say yes. I bought gen several months ago and I am learning how to think about DSP at a more fundamental level, and to improve/optimize my own digital audio tools. I think it removes one further layer of abstraction from the environment, in a similar way to the Max4Live API.

gen is pretty much noob friendly, at least if you have a certain background in maxMSP, when compared to other similar-level dsp programming languages.
