New user with questions about Max/MSP - Jitter - Ableton Live & more...

    OK, so i'm pretty much a newbie to the Max/MSP, Jitter world...
    I've been using Live for a lil while now, composing a lot of music and working on live performances with it...
    I also have done tons of video, motion graphics, etc. and have a couple of friends who've shown me Max/MSP and what they've done with it as far as audio goes...
    now i'm excited to start messing with Max/MSP as far as audio goes, but i'm really interested to start seeing where i can take it all as far as combining my audio with all my other video work through Jitter...
    now i must apologize if this has been dicussed, but i wanted to know if this is all possible and how can you use Ableton Live with Max/MSP and is it possible to even use Jitter and possibly even a Lemur with it all?
    does this make any sense? cause if i'm thinking of this correctly, sounds like it could be possible and could be a hell of blast trying to do!!!
    ;]
    please someone let me know wassup!!!
    thanks for any and all advice...

      hello,
      welcome to the wonderful world of customized creations...
      You can certainly combine all these tools together, and I run Max/MSP with
      Live all the time - both to turbocharge the MIDI capabilities of Ableton,
      and to process audio.
      If you are on a mac you can use jackOS or Soundflower to pass audio between
      the applications - or build your own VST's using Max's pluggo objects to
      make your own plugins. Not a specialist in jitter myself, but there are
      certainly many options here too.
      Not sure if you had any spcific quesitons in mind - the general answer is
      "yes", have a look through the max-msp tutorials, or scan them for subjects
      that interest you and then take a look at the examples, good luck, seb.
