I'm an absolute newbie when it comes to MAX/MSP - I have absolutely no idea what I am doing. At all.
I was wondering if I could be pointed to some guides or demos aimed at people just starting out.
I saw the interview with AGF, which really inspired me as I had often wondered what process she had used to make such interesting sounds.
As far as I understand it MAX/MSP allows me to create my own audio effects and processors, yes? Now, can I save them as a VST to load in my sequencer (Cubase SX3 /Ableton 5) or does the processing need to be done inside MAX/MSP? Also, what the heck is Pluggo? I have read all the official product statements on the site - but they go a little above my knowledge at the moment (for instance, Pluggo looks to be a collection of VST effects and instruments, but it goes on to say you'll need MAX/MSP to edit your own. So is Pluggo just a wrapper for MAX/MSP)?
I would absolutely love to get into this, so if you can help me with the basics I would be very grateful! Guides would be especially good!
