I'm forwarding this information from Gregory Taylor at Cycling '74, who will be teaching a beginners' workshop for Max/MSP/Jitter at Eyedrum in June.
Our next workshop will be held at Eyedrum in Atlanta, GA and is
strictly for beginners.
This workshop is specifically for new users, and is intended to provide
an introduction to Max, MSP, and Jitter together as a unit. It
concentrates on the basics of working with Max for all users in a
variety of situations including audio and image processing.
The topics to be covered in the workshop include an overview of the Max,
MSP, and Jitter objects in their natural habitat, basic audio and video
processing techniques, strategies for patch design and creation, user
interface design, and techniques for better patching, learning & problem
solving. Particular emphasis will be given to learning about and taking
advantage of Max's data neutrality -- the ability to interconnect audio
and video image processing data.
This workshop places an emphasis on strategies for learning
Max/MSP/Jitter that can be applied after the workshop ends.
Participants are required to bring their own laptop (Windows or Mac)
with Max/MSP/Jitter installed. A three-month software authorization will
be provided with the $300 class fee. To reserve a space call Jill at
