Max 7 Book

    Subtractive Synthesis in Max

    This is the third version of the book Electronic Music and Sound Design Vol. 1, updated for Max 7. The book is an overview of the theory and practice of Max and MSP, with a glossary of terms and suggested tests that allow students to evaluate their progress. Comprehensive online support, running parallel to the explanations in the book, includes hundreds of sample patches, analyses, interactive sound-building exercises, and reverse engineering exercises. This book will provide a reader with skill and understanding in using Max/MSP for sound design and musical composition.
    Authors: Alessandro Cipriani and Maurizio Giri (Foreword by David Zicarelli)
    Available in both electronic and "paper" format.

      Hi Maurizio, are you planning to sell this book in Kindle format? I usually try to stick to Kindle rather than iBooks for organising purpose, but if you are not planning to, I would just buy the iBooks version.
      Thanks a lot, Masa

      Hi Masa, the Kindle version doesn't offer the same quality of the iBook, so at the moment we aren't planning a Kindle version.
      Thanks Maurizio

      Thank you Maurizio. I didn't know about the quality difference. Is it about images? I am going to buy the iBooks one. Thanks a lot.

      Perhaps it's a silly question but is there an option to update from a previous version? I bout the April 2016 edition on iBooks.

      Hi Maurizo,
      I've been looking for a solid resource for learning Max and just discovered your book. I see that you updated it for Max 7. Will there be an updated version for Max 8?
