Here's an initial tip:

option-click the leftmost inlet for a list of attributes and messages, including all box attribute messages (prevents having to look them up).

Additional course patches

Posted by Jeff Lubow on July 23, 2012

These patches were either built up in class, or used by instructors during breakout sessions (during which new material was presented). We will be updating this page with new materials as we move through the week.

Planning for Max 6 adjustments to summer courses

Posted by Jeff Lubow on June 21, 2012

I'm going to use this space to update with what relevant details there are to advance to Max 6 standards in our coursework.

Some preliminary thoughts...

1. dict instead of coll
2. odot objs instead of osc-route and opensoundcontrol
3. general look of stuff in m6
4. might consider tabs if relevant (zl info etc)
5. might consider dict help in addition to zl info
