Hi everyone, i'm a music tech student and i have to make an algorithmic composition using MAX MSP for a piece of coursework. But basically never having used MAX before i only have a very basic knowledge of MAX. I was thinking of creating the actual algorithmic pattern in MAX and then using a Playstation 3 controller to control parameters of a synth (eg. filters) in either Reason or Logic of which would affect the sound of my algorithmic pattern in MAX. I hope that explanation makes sense.
So any help/tips would really be appreciated on how to go about this, and when i say i have a very basic knowledge of MAX that's exactly what i mean, so go into as much detail as possible if you could please.
Thanks in advance for any help given.
