Hi, I am trying to track down information, tips, resources etc to optimize Max MSP for 'good sounding' synthesis.
I have done some searching but can't seem to find what I assumed would be an obvious topic.
What I mean by 'good sounding' is that relatively immediate smoothness you get in Reaktor, or SuperCollider. (Apologies if saying those words in this forum is blasphemy!) Max seems glitchier and harsher for synthesis in comparison.
I am planning to build a basic synth tutorial for my Masters project, and for my BTEC class, to get them into synthesis and ultimately Max. (Hopefully, like a more basic, but better sounding and more user friendly of the excellent Huddersfield University's SYBIL).
Is there a 'synth tips' type, post that I can draw from and add to? If so, please can someone point it out? If not, would it be too presumptuous as a forum noob to suggest that we make one?
In the spirit of sharing ideas, please check out my first basic attempt at smoothing out audio switching, job no. 1 in my 'good sounding' Max synth job list, below.
Any constructive comments greatly appreciated.
(If anyone is interested, I'll happily breakdown the rest of my job list and continued ideas to solve).
