Hey I know this is kinda a bit off topic, and different to people seeking help with Max Patching and stuff.
But I am looking into a MSc in either Audio Programming or Sound Design, and would like it if you guys could share some background into your occupations, knowledge etc and which one would you go for if you were me.
I am currently going into my third year of Music Technology so have a year left of study, plus a dissertation at the end of it (of which I do not know what to base it on), and I am currently in the process of learning Max as I really want to learn it to help develop ideas and projects to manipulate audio/midi.
I really love to manipulate audio and Max seems the best tool to use to take control of it (even though the learning curve is quite erratic) and think that it is well documented compared to the other audio programs out there (Csound, Supercolider) which are less documented and require a broader knowledge of programming.
Do you think that going down the audio programming route I will struggle a lot (as I will be programming in C++ and Max), rather than the Sound Design route (where there will be some programming using Max).
Sorry for posting such a topic here, but would really appreciate it if you could just post your experience with both topics or anything that relates to them, and provide me with further information.
Cheers everyone (and sorry for the long post)
