My name is Wojciech Morawski and I am a part of small company named lowertone which makes Max based apps and utilities. We have already made a release of the first pack of Max h.elpers - a free collection (CC license) of Max patches designed to make the patching process faster, improve its visibility and to encourage Max users to develop their skills.
Our idea is to give students a bunch of patches which deal with specific problems and can be freely used as abstractions. In that way one can easily use them to speed up patching or to learn how to solve some specific tasks they cope with.
h.elpers is pack of 16 addons for Max/MSP, that should help in faster and easier prototyping and learning.
h.elpers consist of:
h.cpu~ – meter of CPU usage
h.dac~ – audio output with limiter and recorder
h.del~ – delay with feedback and freeze options
h.dw~ – easy dry/wet control
h.ext~ – dynamic external audio routing
h.meter~ – customizable audio signal meter
h.midi_Key – converting computer keyboard into midi input
h.midi_S – mapping for midi signals
h.pan~ – panning module
h.print – easier printing with gate
h.psd~ – pseudo stereo delay
h.rec~ – faster audio recording
h.slider~ – for using dB curves for 0. – 1. values
h.solo~ – easy soloing of multiple signals
h.soloStereo~ – easy soloing of multiple stereo signals
h.vol~ – easier volume control
Mac and Windows versions included!
