I recently purchased MAX5 in the hope of expanding my musical palette.
I have mainly used logic and ableton connect to lots of vintage gear.
I have hit a wall with those programs.
I have found that with these programs their are an abundance of tools to help you but most of the time they get in the way.
I have also began to hear lots of these effects/tricks used all over the place.
This led me to purchase Max in hope of designing my own interface
not a complex one, far from it, just one that enable me to control exactly what i tell it to do.
I am going through the tutorials but am getting very confused and trapped within the lessons. I will read a couple and it sticks.
Ill return to them and it makes no sense.
Also when you are asked to make a patch in the tutorials I just cant get them to work. I wish there were more examples (within the examples) to show how they look and work.
I really want to get into but can't afford any tuition and there doesn't appear to be a noob section or tips and tricks like Ableton website which would be handy.
Apologies for my lack of understanding but i have so many ideas of things i want to make but dont know where to start.
If any one has any thoughts that would be great.
