  • Om NAMMa Shiva (Part N where N=3)

    The nature of the booth traffic is visible not only in a relative dearth of exciting action demo photos on my part (I am giving them aforementioned demos, and thus otherwise occupied), but also in my relative lack of trade show mobility. There are a few exceptions.


  • Om NAMMa Shiva (Part N where N=2)

    We’re behind the Apple booth. This is a good thing in that we are beside and right in the demo audio line of fire of the Sony booth; two such circumstances would probably make anyone mad as a hatter.


  • Om NAMMa Shiva (part N where N=1)

    Greetings from the Los Angeles equivalent of a serious cold snap (which equates to an exceptionally nice respite from a Midwestern winter). Yes, it’s NAMM time again….


  • MSP Learns to Ride a Bike

    The first version of MSP was released eight years ago -- December 21, 1997 to be exact. As MSP's age now represents a child old enough to read and understand a few rudimentary swear words, I felt it was appropriate to reflect briefly on MSP's past, present, and future.

    The Jamoma Project recently released version 0.2 of its modular framework for Max, MSP, and Jitter.

  • Things OTHERS wish people had told THEM

    When I started this series of short "advice" pieces to Max/MSP/Jitter beginners, I also decided to ask a number of my friends and colleagues about what their ideas of what good advice might be so that you won't be left with just my admittedly biased advice set...
