During the month of June, we will be holding two beginners-only Max/MSP/Jitter workshops: one in Atlanta at Eyedrum June 4-7, and another one at SAE in Los Angeles June 28-July 1.
These workshops are specifically for beginners only, and are intended to provide an introduction to Max, MSP, and Jitter together as a unit. They concentrate on the basics of working with Max for all users in a variety of situations including audio and image processing.
The topics to be covered in the workshops include an overview of the Max, MSP, and Jitter objects in their natural habitat, basic audio and video processing techniques, strategies for patch design and creation, user interface design, and techniques for better patching, learning & problem solving. Particular emphasis will be given to learning about and taking advantage of Max’s data neutrality — the ability to interconnect audio and video image processing data.
These workshops place an emphasis on strategies for learning Max/MSP/Jitter that can be applied after the workshop ends.
Participants are required to bring their own laptop (Windows or Mac) with Max/MSP/Jitter installed. A three-month software authorization will be provided with the $300 class fee.
P.S. Our friends at CNMAT will also be offering their annual set of summer workshops, which feature programs for intermediate and more advanced users. You can find out more about their workshops from their website: http://www.cnmat.berkeley.edu/Max_MSP2007.html
