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

Scheduler settings suggestions for MaxMSP

Posted by Jeff Lubow on November 8, 2011

Andy was mentioning that he had tweaked some of the scheduler settings in Max, based on some research and intuition. I've modified my scheduler settings accordingly, and have ended up with a fairly stable working copy of Max so far. I'm including them here, and will invite Andy to comment further.

Deprecated features in Max5

Posted by Jeff Lubow on November 12, 2009

There are a couple of things that don't work in Max5 that used to work in 4.
I am going to try to keep a log of these as time goes by. Of course this post will stay open for comments if anyone else finds any.

1. buffer~ no longer supports init arguments, specifying an initial offset in ms from 0 in order to load a segment of your audio file

Intuitive Jitter Editor via Cellblock

Posted by Jeff Lubow on August 27, 2009

I've patched together a simple example of a way to edit a Jitter (char in this example) matrix without the traditional methods found in the help file.
Basically the idea is to capture keystrokes only when the current window is active. Then based on defined ASCII criteria, output that as you're graphically navigating around the matrix. I'm taking advantage of individual cell output mode.
