For part 3, I'm going to continue to look at more common sources of anxiety like learning to work in the single-sample environment of the gen~ object. I'm going to focus on two of the important differences: learning to count, and living in a world without the bang message.
It's time to add a custom icon to our standalone. Join me for 20 minutes to see the process on both the Mac and Windows platforms.
In Part 2, I'm going to continue with our program of anxiety reduction by running through the gen~ basics that beginners may find uncomfortable. I’ll start by taking a minute to talk about some of the places where your Max experience translates easily to working in gen~, and move on to demystify some of the differences.
The first half of the title says it all - this is the first in a series of articles about getting used to the gen~ patching environment if you're a beginner. The goal is about becoming comfortable with the gen~ object and the approaches you might take to do interesting work.
My original motivation for getting into Max was to create The Best Step Sequencer Ever - something I’m still trying to do.

The third installment in our tutorial series on Standalones will guide you through the process of creating your own file format. I'll show you how to make your app read and write documents, customize menu bars, and even give you the inside scoop on a secret object.
In the second installment of our series on creating standalone applications in Max, we'll learn the basics on working with dependencies, scripting, and the fine art of trimming a standalone down to size.
For the final part of our holiday tutorial on creating an automatic sampling system, we're going to do a little cleanup and build a standalone application to share.
Welcome to the third part of our holiday tutorial series on creating an automatic sampling system. Now that we have automated sample runs and recording working, let’s spend some time cleaning up the recording process to get rid of the gaps at the start and end of our samples....
