MaxForLive: Creating Your Own Audio Tools in Max For Live

For years J. Anthony Allen has been teaching Ableton Live and Max in the college classroom. As a University Professor, his classes are sought after, and, frankly, expensive. He believes Ableton Live can be learned by anyone, and cost shouldn’t be a barrier. This class uses the same outline and syllabus he’s used in my college classes for years, at a fraction of the cost.

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. Allen has 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.

Learning MaxForLive: From the basics to the advanced, with Ableton Certified Trainer J. Anthony Allen.
