Max/MSP Introductory workshop

I will be running a free introductory Max/MSP workshop on Saturday the 6th of November. No prior programming knowledge is required. All welcome :-)

Thinking of  starting at 10.30am and going on until 5.30pm (with time to play on your own little projects).

Space is limited to 20.

What is Max/MSP?

Max/MSP is a graphical programming environment, making it very easy to code quickly. All you have to do is connect little boxes together and you have yourself a programme. It's a great for artists!

With Max/MSP you can get your computer to do pretty much anything you want.  You can create music instruments, software to remind you to email your mom, or build an interactive video effects processor triggered by movement. If you are into physical computing (using microcontrollers such as an Arduino) you can bring in external sensory data into your computer, process it, and spit it back out as something else, allowing you to turn this data into pretty much anything you can dream of.


We will go from the absolute basics of creating a patch to building your own little programmes.


Max - it is the environment you use to create your patches - it's the brains behind your programme and is the key to MSP and Jitter. It really helps to learn this first, so most of our time will be spent learning Max.

MSP - It's a set of objects that deal with audio signal processing. We will touch the very basics of MSP

Jitter - It's a set of objects that deals with video and matrix data processing. We will also just skim over it. 

what should you bring?

    •    laptop if you have (let us know if you need as we have 14 computers available)
    •    If you're bringing your own laptop, have Max/MSP/Jitter installed (30 day demo available from
    •    Headphones
