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

letter Ed uses to invite composer to submit music to ECO

Posted by Edmund Campion on November 11, 2011

Last year at CNMAT, in association with Cal Performances at UC Berkeley, we instituted a professional ensemble in residence, the ECO Ensemble. The ensemble is sinfonietta size (up to 20 musicians, possibly more). The musicians of ECO are drawn from the best performers of new music in the Bay Area and are under the direction of David Milnes.

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.
