Beginning in April, I'm going to be taking on self-directed studies
in Max/MSP at the undergraduate level. It's going to be a full credit
load endeavor, maybe supplemented with the odd Ableton composition
here and there, so I intend to spend a lot of time with Max.
Currently, I have a basic grounding in programming (C++), and
extensive background in digital audio / composition. This'll be my
first formal experience with Max/MSP, though definitely not my last.
I guess I'm just a bit overwhelmed at the moment, and I'd love to
hear any advice anyone would be willing to offer, so I might spend
the next couple as effectively as possible. What are some good
beginner - intermediate resources? What might be some realistic goals
for a period of this length / intensity (I'd like to aim high)?
Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated!
