Algorithmic composition is a rich and deep and subtle endeavor, and one of those things that probably every Max audio person out there has opinions about. If you're curious or a beginner, it's hard to know how to translate your curiosity or interest into action.
A bit of code can act very much like a score -- it is not only an individual expression of an idea, but it encapsulates the possibilities of that idea. It’s both an expression of self, like any piece of art, and a tool that can be repurposed, remixed, and reframed to fit the unique needs of a wide range of artists.
Tips and techniques for sending Jitter video content to streaming platforms and teleconferencing apps.
Many are facing the need to teach or present work using Max remotely, this article shows how to set up streaming from your computer.
I'm going to finish out our short series on Gen with a quick look at perhaps the least well-known of the Gen family: the gen object ("gen" without the tilde). Simply put, the gen object lets you create Gen patches whose Max event-domain processing routines are similar to what you can do with audio using the gen~ object.
One of my favorite things about Max: almost all the examples and patches can serve another purpose with the addition (or removal) of a few patch cords or objects.
Welcome to the third and final part of our tutorial series specifically designed for Max for Live users who are interested in creating their own devices.
During a visit to NYC a number of years back, I discovered the beautiful obsessive drawings of Martin Thompson and turned my respect into a Max tutorial. One winter’s day, I started thinking of porting the patch to the Gen world and see what a jit.gl.pix-based version of my original patch allow me to explore.
On a recent particularly cold and sunny day, I decided to fire up gen~ and spend some time exploring the kind of wavetable morphing that some of my Eurorack modules use.
