• Audition

    Audition is a flexible sample preview tool built in Max.

  • mike.aha

    mike.aha is an aleatoric human aggregator built with Max. ​ mike is designed to ingest large quantities of public domain source media (sound, music, speech, image, video and text) and recombine it aleatorically based on a few simple parameters: intensity, density, repetition, focus, and space.

  • Experimental Film [REPEAT],

  • sonic particles 2.0 is a real-time sonification of urban environmental data.

  • Video Voto Matic

    Users punch their rhythm into a “voting booklet” that mimics the infamous punchcard-style Votomatic voting machines used during the 2000 Florida election debacle.

  • Geografia Sonora

    "Geografia Sonora", a sound-video installation on the theme of the sea. An archipelago of “sound islands” (singing/speaking voices, sound signals, natural and mechanical sounds) and the a continuously changing sparkling sea are automatically generated ad infinitum by Max/MSP, the Spatialisateur, Jitter and Antescofo software.

  • lOOpfiNder

    A simple patch for galvanising inspiration.

  • Key Link API

    Wish Key Signatures could be synchronized between applications? They can! Heres a logically ordered list of all possible note combinations within 12TET with assigned OSC values. Theres room to include scales beyond 12TET, but at the moment it is centered around that particular temperament. In thinking of other temperaments, we are considering floating point values between the current integers, or extending the list to be much longer.

  • Having a couple lists of general midi compatible chromatic presets (each 128 long [one in Kontakt, one in FM8]) has been incredibly useful for me when I want to jump straight into composition and not think too hard about choosing an instrument. I've also been able to use it successfully with old auto accompaniment keyboards and other multitrack sequencers, and get a selection of patches that are a pretty good fit to what the intended sound should be. I've not yet posted my max patches to handle the program changes because they are sub-optimal, but if you'd like to join the discussion and collaborate on development of devices, the folder structures, and preset lists, please join the google group!forum/the-bsp-initiative

  • vStack

    vStack is a looper application build 100% with Max.

  • The vArisPeed patch is a tool for designing and performing realtime, random compositions from audio loop samples played at varying speeds typically between 0.01 and 0.99 of normal speed.

  • #Carbonfeed

    Tweets release air bubbles and electronic sounds that allow viewers to see and hear the environmental cost of online behavior and its supportive physical infrastructure.

  • SASER SAS24P3L Standalone

    SASER SAS24P3L is a software defined radio (SDR) telescope without an antenna need.

  • Redundancy Suite

    Redundancy is a full length LP composed entirely with Max.

  • Sonic Views

    Sonic Views are images generated by ambient sounds. To each value of the waveform's amplitude is associated a color ranging from black to white. Each color is then applied to a squared cell in a matrix, creating a picture where the ambient recording can be explored at its most granular level, but where sound is left to the spectator to imagine.

  • SUCKERPUNCH – drum synthesizer

    SUCKERPUNCH is a drum synthesizer created in MAX 7.


    SOLID STATE is an audio-visual installation, which deals with the rave experience and transcendence. The room is transformed through the use of light, fog and surround sound into a multi-sensory hallucinative and ecstatic state.

  • g.Seq.r

    g.Seq.r is a 16 step sequencer which allows you to experiment with rhythmic variation by leveraging the power of a genetic algorithm to ‘evolve’ new and unexpected patterns from a target.

  • Back, and Feed

    "Back, and Feed" is a project created entirely using Max.

  • In the Gravity Daze with an unusual attractiveness constructed by a dark space and white particles, the galaxy and the sounds could be manipulated in a poetic way to present in the scheme of the universe.
