О курсе

This course is "5-Star Certified" by the International Association of Online Music Educators and Institutions (IAOMEI). This course has been independently reviewed by a panel of experts and has received a stellar 5-star rating.

For years I've been teaching Ableton Live and Max in the college classroom. As a University Professor, my classes are sought after, and, frankly, expensive. I believe Ableton Live can be learned by anyone, and cost shouldn't be a barrier. This class uses the same outline and syllabus I've used in my college classes for years, at a fraction of the cost.

This is Part 7: MaxForLive

MaxForLive is a powerful tool that lets users design their own instruments, effects, and devices. It isn't without its drawbacks: MaxForLive is notoriously difficult to learn. I've developed an approach for teaching MaxForLive that focuses on teaching it like a language: You will learn small blocks and patches, understanding the how and the why along the way. As we grow our vocabulary, we "learn how to learn" more and more.

Topics include:

  • The unique and quirky history and development of Max
  • What we can do with MaxForLive
  • Max vs. MaxForLive
  • The MaxForLive Devices
  • Finding and Sharing MaxForLive Devices
  • Getting Help: Help Windows in MaxForLive
  • Presentation Mode & Patching Modes
  • The Max Editor
  • Messages
  • Bangs & Buttons
  • Project 1: Building a MIDI Delay
  • Project 2: Building an Arpeggiator
  • Working with Audio Signals
  • Project 3: An Audio Delay
  • ~ Objects (tilde objects)
  • Presentation Setup
  • Controlling Live
  • Abstractions
  • Controlling anything in Live
  • Project 4: A Beat-Quantized Randomized Filter
  • Finding the Beat from Live
  • Project 5: Artificial Intelligence (sort of)
  • And much more!!!

Also included in this class is 6 of my own MaxForLive patches for you to download, dissect, use, and build on.

And of course, once you sign up any part, you automatically get huge discounts to all the upcoming parts of this class. You will not have another opportunity to learn Ableton Live in a more comprehensive way that this.

Praise for other classes by J. Anthony Allen:

  • "I've had Live Lite for a while but never quite understood how to use it because of the different options in how to arrange audio. This course explains exactly how to do that and get the most out of Live."
  • "Great overview - I would start here for sure if you are just getting your feet wet with live. clear and to the point. session walkthroughs are great. looking forward to more"
  • "I have never had any formal training in music at all. Trying to learn all the notes and how everything translated was a serious challenge. After going thru this class, Dr. J has totally brought down the barriers. The content was very useful and was easy to grasp for me."

    Welcome & Overview
    Welcome to the class! In this first video I'll give you a quick overview of what we are going to cover.
    Introduction
    Welcome to the world of MaxForLive. Say goodbye to your friends, your spouse, and your social life (but surprisingly not your money). This is addictive stuff.
    What is MaxForLive?
    Before we get started with the language, I would like to be sure we are all on the same page about with MaxForLive is, and isn't.
    MaxForLive in a Nutshell
    For starters, I want to just talk about the basics of MaxForLive, and show you what it looks like.
    The 10K ft View
    Next, I want to take a 10,000 foot view, and show you how MaxForLive works.
    What We Can Do in MaxForLive

    Lets talk a little bit about the possibilities of MaxForLive.

    Patch Download: Artificial Intelligence Experiment

    Our first download: This is the patch I showed in the previous video.

    MaxForLive vs. Max vs. Max/MSP/Jitter

    The name of this thing can be a little confusing. I'll address that here just to get us all on the same page.

    A Brief History of Max

    Max has actually been around for a few decades - while MaxForLive is fairly new. It has a long and strange history - worth knowing about (and fun to talk about!)

    Getting Started
    Next I want to show you how to use Max, not just Program Max. Also in this section we will start covering the basics of the Max workflow.
    The MaxForLive Devices (in Ableton)

    The MaxForLive Devices are our basic building block - sort of our canvas for creating devices.

    Loading MaxForLive Devices

    Your installation of Ableton Live probably came with a bunch of MaxForLive devices. Take a quick look at what you've got - knowing that any device can be opened and altered.
