Assignment 8: Max: Intro to Audio

What we’re trying to do

What to turn in

How to do it

  1. Do the rest of the Max Audio Quickstart tutorials, 6-9. (If you’re having trouble with the material, focus on tutorials 6 and 7, and come back to 8 and 9 some other day. The latter two are not necessary for doing this assignment’s patches.)
  2. Patch A

    Use a microphone input to bring sound into the patch, and process this sound before sending it to the speakers. Process by using a filter and a delay line (with feedback) in some configuration. See below for implementation hints.

  3. Patch B

    Consider this patch as practice for doing the simplest kind of Max piece for acoustic instrument and computer: one in which the player, using a foot pedal, steps through several fixed-media cues while performing the piece. This allows the player to have more control over the time flow of the piece than she would if playing with a CD or single sound file (or tape in the old days). See below for hints.
