Product Description

Review

"A groundbreaking, step-by-step approach to empowering the creativity of music educators and music students through interactive computer software design." --from the Foreword by David Elliott, Professor of Music and Music Education, New York University"Max has become a major player in the world of music making and VJ Manzo's book is perfect for those who want to become fluent with the language. And, for the growing legions of music makers who are using clusters of applications for diverse projects, Manzo's clear categorization of Max functionality may well make this book an ongoing standard reference for building specific Max/MSP patches within each cluster." --Morton Subotnick, Composer and Educator"This book is a lucid and systematic introduction for beginners or intermediate users to all three components of the popular multimedia software Max/MSP/Jitter, covering MIDI, basic programming concepts, real-time audio/video manipulation, camera tracking, and alternate controllers. VJ Manzo does an excellent job of clearly explaining how to use the software. Music educators, students, music technologists, sound designers, game developers, composers, and multimedia artists interested in learning Max in order to develop their own software applications will find this to be a highly useful text." --Cort Lippe, Director, The Lejaren Hiller Computer Music Studios, University of Buffalo"There are very few comprehensive resources out there for educators in music technology to get their students engaged in the creative act of writing software, as opposed to simply relying on commercial applications. This book, start to finish, provides a thorough curriculum for using Max in a music education setting, nicely complementing the company's own documentation by showing how to build more complex projects that integrate interactivity and sound. Manzo's book is a great read, not only for educators and students but for electronic musicians looking to expand their arsenal of expressive tools." --R. Luke DuBois, Brooklyn Experimental Media Center, Polytechnic Institute of NYU

By Jonathan Mosley on 9 Mar 2014
Format: Paperback
I had have had a tough time finding good literature on how to learn Max Msp, and I was really surprised by this book. It sounded like it would be geared more for teaching but to be honest although the writer created this book as a means of educating teachers how to use Max MSP to help them teach music it therefore coincidentally is brilliant at teaching anybody who wants to learn Max MSP.

It doesn't go deep into an Digital Signal Processing and if you already know Max it won't push your knowledge but might reinforce the fundamentals.

If you want a volume of books for learning how to create synths, effects, filters, dynamic processors or EQ then you should look for Electronic Music and Sound Design Vol 1 and 2

I am currently studying music technology at university and one of the modules I have taken is called computer sound. This book has everything in it that I need to know so far, plus it's a great reference book for when the patches go horrible wrong as well.

Read the title carefully, this is mainly for teachers 20 Aug 2012
By harmono - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a useful book for anyone that is interested in learning MAX/MSP, however it's a bit boring if you are not a teacher. I bought the book, and didn't realise it was for teachers. I do like how it's written, and it covers many topics that I'm interested, especially MIDI. If you are MIDI oriented and not into making software synths this might be a good starting point, but you might lose interest when it gets into music theory.

Best Way to Learn is to Teach - Even Interactive Music Systems 3 Jan 2013
By Suzanne Bowen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Frank Oppenheimer once said the best way to learn is to teach. I know this statement is quite accurate in truth because I taught English for 17 years and have watched my son Scott Slay teach Music for over 10 years. In that time, I have observed that when one's students have the opportunity to research answers and then teach each other what they learn and then apply what they learn, they don't forget. They enjoy and they internalize. I like the book "Max/MSP/Jitter for Music: A Practical Guide to Developing Interactive Music Systems for Education and More" even though I am not an interactive music, algorithmic composer, and progressive/alternative rock musician, professor and expert like Mr. Manzo is. It's cool that the book includes the passcode for documented source code on a special website! Last, it is exciting to understand a little more about open source music tools. I am into open source voice over Internet, having started and sold one VoIP company in that industry. I have been studying open source music tools in 2012, and Manzo's book was part of research with a small study group of mine.
