Assignment 7: Max: Intro to Audio

What we’re trying to do

What to turn in

How to do it

  1. Download Max Audio Quickstart. Unzip it by double-clicking its icon (if it hasn’t already been unzipped by your browser).
  2. Go through the Max Audio Quickstart tutorials 1-7 in order.

    If you’re having trouble with the material, focus on tutorials 1-2, 4, 6-7.

  3. Patch A

    Make a patch that works like the metro-driven one you did in Assignment 6, but instead of rendering the sound with a MIDI synthesizer, render it by using one or more Max oscillators. You will need to envelope each note. Vary the amplitudes of the notes. See below for implementation hints.

  4. Patch B

    Make a patch that lets you play several short sound files by typing keys on the computer keyboard. Use a playlist~ object for each of the sound files. See below for hints.
