Max & MIDI (II)

This week’s lecture focused on programming style and strategies for structuring a patch for real-time performance situations. After looking at different solutions for Class 3’s programming assignment  we discussed strategies for detecting and removing programming mistakes (debugging) to make you programs behave as intended. We then studied different approaches to realize more complex data-flows and introduced […]


Max & MIDI (I)

This week we started working with MIDI in the Max environment. We discussed the different semantics of a MIDI note message vs a musical note (as we know it from standard Western music notation). While the former is a discrete instruction, the latter has a duration and is commonly embedded in a harmonic and metric context, i.e. it has a musical meaning. In MIDI, […]
