Practical starting guide to Max/MSP/Jitter
Here we present a beginner’s guide to Max/MSP/Jitter. Our methodology does not include patches because we encourage students to build their own patches from scratch.
We provide textual indications and images to make it easier for the student building and understanding patches.
This is by no means a complete user guide of Max, take it more as the missing link between knowing nothing about Max and feeling confident enough to dive on the tutorials and other external documentation that may seem quite overwhelming for a first time approach to Max.
All the patches shown in images in the guide were tested with Max 5.1.6 and 5.1.7.
We would like to receive your feedback and also if you find the methodology interesting or not in order to develop more modules like this.
The aim of the project itself is to reduce the learning curve for Max novice users.
