There are uncountable number of commercial programs for sequencing and modulating sounds, but I think that the more interesting and unique are the home-made and self designed digital tools. Here we'd like to share an example of our way in the band to sequence music on stage or in studio.

I'm often teaching Max6 & Max for Live frameworks and I decided to challenge myself and to write a short guide about Max for Live both in french and english. I had that idea during one of my latest course with a person and I made it! This is a self-published book usin leanpub.com platform.
OK so this was a project I worked on back in May 2010 and thought people might be interested.

Bow_o_Rama born from the desire to create a simple application of intuitive music, a small sound object that can stimulate the desire of the listener to discover acoustic particles; the audience is not a mere spectator, but an active part of the creative process. The choice of my instrument, the viola da gamba, an emblem of the Baroque period and the instrument on which I decided to start a journey in searching new sounds and languages, is also related to the specific desire to give an acoustic sound texture to the audio. Each sample presented in Bow_o_Rama is uncompressed, aiff to 44.100/24 bit, in order to ensure to the listener an audio CD quality, in contrast to the compression of common downloadable digital formats. The application certainly is not perfect, I’m not a programmer but a musician, it's the first app that I did using MAX 6 and is a first step towards the desire to offer a new way to enjoy music and contemporary art.
My personal emulation of the famous Roland tb 303 totally built using MAX. I added some simple effects like reverb (using the tool nw.gverb~), tape delay and a bit crusher for a chance to work more on the waveforms and to make the best performance.
