Advanced Max: FFTs, Part 3

In the third in our series on using the FFT in Max, spend 45 minutes learning how to visualize the FFT processing you’re working with, and further explore the use of various window types in ways that you can see and hear.

All the tutorials in this series:
Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

I've tried this tutorial

Bang! Finished it!

I had some trouble, but got through it.

I did not get this tutorial at all.

Nice tutorial, thanks for that. I thought you would demonstrate using windowing in the [jit.fft] patch… Would still like to see examples of that.

Thanks, Jean-Francois! Great idea to apply windowing to the frames sent to jit.fft.

Gosh, I miss MaxMSP :(

(I’ve taken a vow to execrate all vernacular pseudo-religious exclamations from my vocabulary; it’s just a thing)

Gosh. (and then I did a google research, sigh)

Great series! I’ve been looking for engaging and accessible ways to explain FFTs to students in my audio processing/design course (which is all Max, all the time, I might add), and these tutorials and patchers are very useful. Thanks!
