Explore with BEAP

Start with some basics with monophonic expressions. Using the BEAP modules, we’ll build a patch that creates a compelling and unique sound design with only a few connections. It’s a great introduction on the basics of Max but relevant to any modular workflow and designing sound with pressure and location. patch: Live Stream.maxproj/MPE in BEAP.maxpat

 

MIDI

Using the Temporal Conduit Oscillator patch, we’ll get into how to adapt an existing patch to a Morph Overlay. It’s pretty simple, thanks to Max 8’s MIDI Map feature, so it’s an easy way to get your Morph working with someone else’s work.

We’ll also check out a visual patch where we use MIDI and the innovator’s overlay to animate a 3D puppet.

Scaling

The Morph is all about feeling. Max is a great way to dial that in, or find something new. We’ll go through some different ways of tuning the data from the Morph so you can dial in how your gestures affect your art.

MPE and VST

Possibly the easiest way to get rich sound out of Max is to use plugins. This lets you focus on interaction, rather than coding DSP.
