gen~ Video Tutorial Series

There has been a lot of wonderful activity in the Gen domain, and we would like even more people to experience the differences between Max and Gen programming. I have created a set of three videos to intended for the curious absolute beginner – they introduce the gen~ environment, explain a bit of the differences between working in the Max vs. gen~ environment, and include a few simple programs to get you started.

If you’re ready to do even more in Gen, follow our Gen Patch-a-Day series.

I've tried this tutorial

Bang! Finished it!

I had some trouble, but got through it.

I did not get this tutorial at all.

Will we see more of these? Great start but I’ve been trying to design a gen~ patch for a specific purpose and I’m struggling.

Same struggle here… Feeling like I go three years back, when I started Max. :))

Yes, you’ll be seeing more of these – and thanks for your patience.

I have to echo Andro’s woot woot.

I’m looking forward to more!

I find these useful as I’m uncertain in what ways Gen would be superior/more useful to use than normal Max objects
