Recently invested in this complex software . I've been using Maurizio Giri's book to aid my learning curve, and I'm having fun building simple patches. I was wondering is it possible to compose solely in Max, more specifically, can I create sound sources without relying on analog sources? I definitely want to get a field recorder, and I have my eye on a Juno 6, but I was wondering about the possibilities of using Max exclusively for the time being. I'm very much interested in minimalism, with Eliane Radigue being my favorite artist. I would like to compose simple patches to produce textures that would suit my minimalistic tendencies. I was wondering does anyone else compose music of a similar style in Max.
I really enjoyed this patch:
I'm aware the piano samples were from outside Max, but the pads sound like they were made in Max.
I would also like a balance between composing in Max, and composing away from the computer; I purchased some pedals, a looper, and a Tascam Portastudio. I would like to bounce patches out from the computer and work on ideas/sketches via analog means (I love the sound of cassette, too) It seems all too basic, but I would like to have the balance between the two (computer/outside the computer).
Would like some opinions.
Thank you for taking the time to read this in advance.
