MaxTutors revised


PQE
October 15, 2007 | 9:21 pm

I have just revised my tutorial articles, found at
ftp://arts.ucsc.edu/pub/ems/MaxTutors

This is a very extensive revision of the material, eliminating some outdated items, expanding some sketchy explanations, changing graphics to Max 4.6 etc.

I’ve also added some new ones, bringing the total up to 38. At 7 to 20 pages per, that’s nearly a book.

Since I am obviously going to have to do more revisions for Max 5, I declare this a beta set and invite corrections, complaints and suggestions for topics to cover.
I am particularly interested in reactions to "PQE Favorites", where I have endeavored to complie a list of the most commonly used objects as a comfort to those who are overwhelmed by the thousand or so available now.
I am also particularly interested in hearing from teachers who have used (or decided not to use) these in class.

I will watch this thread, but feel free to reply directly to me

It’s asking for a password.

That’s what happens when too many people try to log on at once. That server also manages audio examples for various music classes.
It’s probably busiest from about 1000 to 1800 PST.
Please keep trying.

So far, I’ve been working through the max tutorials. The ones one numbers ASCII, etc, etc. Are very clear and easy to read, it’s absolutely great to have as a sound student. I’m heading for some larger project periods and you’re writing will be of great help to refresh my memory on certain topics, using max as a main tool!

The max&chaos one is a whole different story, I spent a whole weekend simply tweaking and expanding the examples given. I understand it very well thanks to clear explanation and it really made me interested in the subject. I ordered the Gleick book to get some more insight, because I still find it hard to get from an idea to a concrete abstraction..

Thanks again for sharing a great set of knowledge!
