Level: Intermediate to Advanced
Cycling 74’s Max/MSP offers a vast playground of programming opportunities to create your own audio effects. In this workshop you will build your own audio effects that utilizes multi-channel (mc~) for complex audio processes. This workshop aims to provide you with suitable skills to begin exploring the mc~ environment.
Session Learning Outcomes
By the end of this session a successful student will be able to:
Explore the basic concepts of mc~ and how we can apply them to signal processing via delay lines
Build multi-tap delay/resonator/reverb FX using various mc~ objects
Deploy feedback processing using filters such as mc.lores~ and mc.svf~
Apply UI elements to gain access to the various mc~ processes
Applying modulation sources such as mc.cycle~ to create a polyphonic/multi-voice chorus effect.
