This week I was gutsy, I did two MaxMSP tutorials. I know, brave. Sam’s tutorials on YouTube continue to be a fascinating way to learn Max, as well as yielding some interesting projects. This second installment this week is about building a vocoder. The audio effect now common place is still incredibly rewarding, especially when running through a mic rather than using a recorded sample. There is a strange pleasure in getting to hear the immediate effects of this on your voice, which is further compounded by the ability to add multiple ksliders (keyboards) to the mix. Below is the tutorial I followed along with yesterday, and a resulting bit of fun that I had as a byproduct.
