Für alle Sound u Media-Begeisterten unter euch, so einen Workshop von und mit PURE darf man sich nicht entgehen lassen: Max & Max For Live Einsteigerkurs in Wien (noch gibts ein paar Plätze – Betonung auf ‘noch’!)

Max is a visual programming language that connects sound, visuals and more media. Based on a concept similar to modular synthesizers Max is easy to learn and fast to work with.
Max For Live brings the power of Max to Ableton Live and hugely extends Live’s possibilities with additional instruments, audio effects, modulators and much more. In our course we keep the theory to a minimum and quickly start building Max For Live devices. At the end of the workshop the participants will have working devices for further use/development/learning to take home.
On Friday we introduce the concept, basic principles, important elements, and conventions of Max. We will show what is possible with it and how to achieve it. Then we start with our first device: a melodic MIDI Step Sequencer. Building a MIDI Device is an efficient and motivating way to get into Max while creating something musically useful.
On Saturday we will complete our MIDI Sequencer while learning more programming techniques and tricks. Then we start building a basic, monophonic instrument (synth or sampler).
On Sunday we finish our instrument. Finally we look into the infamous LOM – the Live Object Model. By understanding the LOM you are able to take over control of Ableton Live in unique ways which are impossible with any other DAW .
We will then discuss various topics relevant to musicians who want to build their own instruments and effects like different kinds of “musically useful randomness”, how to implement probability, and topics suggested by the course participants.
Der Unterricht wird, den Bedürfnissen der Teilnehmer.innen entsprechend, auf Deutsch und Englisch geführt.
The course can be held in English or German, or both, depending on the needs of the students.
