gen~ Video Tutorial Series

subfeature-genbeginnervideosThere 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 kick off a series 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. Start watching now.

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

Very useful, and very well done! Many thanks :)
