A Few Minutes with BEAP, Part 1

Max 7 includes a new set of tools developed by Matthew Davidson for his work as a Berklee School of Music instructor. The idea is to have a set of objects that would be as easy to use as the Vizzie modules, but would mirror some of the functionality of a Eurorack modular synthesizer. The result is BEAP: the Berklee Electro Acoustic Pedagogy – a fancy way of saying “A Modular Synthesizer in Max!”

We are going to highlight individual BEAP modules over the next few months, but we should start off with a basic patch: our first BEAP synthesizer. Follow a step-by-step demo of the creation of a simple synth, and use it to explore the BEAP system on your own.

All the tutorials in this series:
Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11, Part 12, and Part 13.

I've tried this tutorial

Bang! Finished it!

I had some trouble, but got through it.

I did not get this tutorial at all.

Hi, Darwin – thanks for this great intro. I can’t seem to get any sound out of this, despite confirming the signal chain and seeing the DSP VU meter light up on the Stereo module (and the patcher Master volume). Audio works fine on my machine otherwise. Any suggestions? Thanks!

D’oh, never mind. Found the input settings under Options :)
