i'm taking a course in it this semester and it's pretty awesome. i'm still really rough with it, obviously,
but it's a lot of fun. building a delay patch at the moment. the square/saw mod wave shapes aren't
working right, but once i get around that, i'm gonna add multi-tap, distortion, stereo, stuttering,
a warm pair of socks, etc.
anyone else using it? i can include this patch if anyone wants it, but if you even have max you
probably see how simple it is, haha.
Solved! Go to Solution.

thanks! it's definitely a daunting program. i've had it on my computer for ages but having a course/someone
i can turn to with questions definitely helps*. the tutorials are really helpful and detailed, but it's still a lot to
take on! if you can though, i definitely recommend it!
edit: *i just sent the patch for a once-over by my professor and apparently my lengthy
[if $i1 == 0 then be an asshole] object is handled just as well as [sel 0] :facepalm:/:love:

awesome! i'm still very much learning but if you need someone to bounce ideas of off, i'm definitely up for it!
so far i've cleaned up that patch a bit and added up and down sawtooth wave forms to it too.
throwing in an optional "analog" filter+distortion next.
i'm studying with the guy that worked on the development team of the program so it's just :love::love::love:

I've certainly known about it for ages, but have never really messed with it. It will be interesting to see / hear what you guys come up with.

you can run max patches for free using "max runtime"! i'm not completely sure of the rewire capabilities of the free version but i'd gladly share anything i come up with/gladly post for you/anyone to use!
unless it's gold and i need to mark it up, of course :catmad:
I've used a few plugins that have required the Max runtime in order to work, but I've never tried rewiring any of them.
Please do keep us posted. I'd be happy to give whatever you come up with a try via the runtime once you're happy with it and finished with the development.

Back when I was at Berklee doing my undergrad I took a couple C-Sound classes and a MAX class. My prof had a modified Nintendo Powerglove to use as a controller.
Cool classes and I think C-Sound helped me to get into more programming but to be honest I am surprised MAX is still around - and I'm surprised C-Sound hasn't taken over the synth industry.

I would def check out C-Sound. If nothing else it will teach you a lot about programming but the really cool thing about it is it's totally modular so you can program it to do anything you want.
I studied C-Sound (and MAX) with Dr. Boulanger @ Berklee back in the mid-90s. At the time there were some pretty amazing things happening with software and computers. You had to work in C pretty much but these days there are different ways to work (Java, etc...). I remember when a MIDI in/out was developed. When I was first learning C-Sound you would just program and compile.
The thought at the time would be that a company could make identical hardware - say a green box, yellow box, red box, black box, etc... and have different software loaded on each. This was kind of pre virtual instruments (although Sample Cell was out). A different time for sure, but we had companies like Opcode and it was kind of a different and exciting time.

just an update here, i'm making loads of headway on a HEXE revolver type stutter effect. all the mechanics are worked out and it's just a matter of what little add-ons i want. also i have to map it to a midi foot controller, but that's really easy to do
