This week, Cycling '74 keeps you in the Loop and checks out an audio interface with some nice tricks.
This was my second time at Loop, a summit for music makers put on by Ableton in Berlin, Germany.
This week, Cycling '74 talks with a composer/Maxista and helps you build the better Throbbing Techno-donut.
Are you looking to dive into audio-responsive visuals, generative graphics, and multiples in Jitter? Rob Ramirez, Cory Metcalf, and I have been working on a package called jit.mo that combines our collective realtime wisdom to simplify the process and open up new possibilities.
It's been quite awhile since we had merchandise available for sale, so I'm happy to announce the release of new mug and t-shirt designs.
This week, Cycling '74 chooses a favorite Max object (and tells you why) and muses upon another oblique source of inspiration: a remixed Victorian novel.
This week, David Z.
Last week, we released a preliminary version of Max support for BLOCKS, an inexpensive modular system of controllers created by ROLI.
This week, Cycling '74 reports on a panel discussion about custom show designs, and takes a look at a hardware update (MSP/analog geeks take note!).
Last week, I was invited by to participate in a panel discussion at Live Design International (LDI) in Las Vegas, the leading conference and trade show for lighting and live design professionals.
This week, Cycling '74 shares the fruits of a rainy afternoon’s worth of patching, shows you awesome patching tricks, and celebrates the diversity of Max for Live sequencing devices.
One of my favorite categories in the maxforlive.com database is the “sequencers” group, which features the idiosyncratic designs of people like me: people chasing after the perfect step sequencer or percussion grid editor.
This week, Cycling '74 reports on a festival in Mexico, makes BEAP patches reminiscent of the Nord Modular, and highlights some packages for visuals.

This week, Cycling '74 reviews a book that’s already changed the coding world, spends a little time with a looper project, and points to a set of Max 7 externals you’ll love.
Not every project is an installation or museum piece.
This week, Cycling '74 introduces you to a seminal article on what Max is, reviews some hardware from Novation, and helps you get your OSC chops up to speed.
This week, I wanted to point you to some resources out there on the web that have to do with the underlying principles of Max.
This week, Cycling '74 drops in on a pair of wearable interface designers, patches up a little video control for BEAP modules, and road-tests a Mirafied Max for Live plug-in.
This week, Cycling '74 introduces you to an artist and her Macro-Cymatic instrument, visits a place where Twitter is made visible, and shows you how to manage multiple objects in Jitter.
A few months ago I stumbled across some stills from an installation that caught my eye.
This week, Cycling '74 releases a special new package with MPE support, takes filter design to the next level, and uses the Seaboard RISE as an effects controller.
The release of the RISE package gives us a chance to show the use of the Seaboard RISE in a different kind of context: as a video effects controller.
