Overview
Status: Available | Released: Oct 31st, 2017
Did you know that you can control synth and effect parameters with your web cam, play musical notes with a video clip, or generate video imagery that can react to your music? You can! In this course, performance artist Thavius Beck walks you through a variety of Max for Live devices (most of them free) specially designed for doing just that.

Thavius starts the course by explaining how to properly download and install the latest version Max for Live, included with Live 9 Suite. Once everything is set up, he reveals how you can display a live web cam directly in Live using a little tool called Cambot. Next, you learn lots of cool tricks such as how to modulate the cutoff frequency of a filter with your web cam, and how to generate audio and MIDI data from a video. You also learn how to record and manipulate the audio result for sound design purposes.

There’s also a whole section of tutorials focusing on creating visual effects with Max for Live devices, where you learn how to automate the playback of QuickTime videos, change their speed, and generate FX that dynamically reacts to the music. The concluding section takes you through other Max for Live devices for creating visual effects without relying on any web cam or video clips.

So join expert trainer Thavius Beck in this 22-tutorial FastTrack course, and take your music and video to the “Max”!
