Max/MSP - What You Can Do With It, What You Can Learn From It

A session at Revision 2013

Sunday 31st March, 2013

4:00pm to 5:00pm (CET)

Max/MSP by Cycling '74 might be one of the most underestimated tools within the demoscene. Is it a synthesizer toolbox? Is it a software development framework? Similarities to common demotools are obvious.

While Max is basically a visual development environment (connecting nodes for manipulating data), it can be used and extended in surprisingly easy ways. Want to use a MIDI controller to program camera movements in your demo? Max/MSP is for you. Want to build a synthesizer that reacts to webcam input? Max/MSP is for you. While Max comes with lots of ready to use building blocks, it can easily be extended via Javascript, Java or native C via friendly APIs, and thus be made to do practically anything without the hassle of reinventing the wheel.

I will give a brief overview, show a few simple usecases and take a quick look at the API to get you started.
