Max 8’s MC: working with hundreds more audio channels than speakers - Loop 2018


    In this presentation, Cycling ’74’s CEO and founder David Zicarelli and Content Specialist Tom Hall introduce us to MC – a new multi-channel audio programming system in Max 8. MC unlocks immense sonic complexity with simple patching. David and Tom demonstrate techniques for generating rich and interesting soundscapes that they discovered during MC’s development. The video presentation touches on the psychoacoustics behind our recognition of multiple sources in an audio stream, and demonstrates how to use these insights in both musical and sound design work.

      I downloaded the patch files, but they are max.zip files. I'm running a mac, and it is an unrecognized file type. Any advice?

      @tommyecho .maxzip is a contained Max Project - you can open it directly with Max.
