Object-based Creation with Max

The Max 6 environment lets you create a chain or matrix of different "objects", each of which perform a specific function. You don't need to know anything about coding to use Max, and the included tutorials help you get up to speed fast by showing you how to make commonly used devices like a polyphonic synth or an LFO. There are over 150 objects to play with, and the potential is only limited by your imagination.

Unlimited Sonic Potential with MSP

MSP is a set of tools within Max 6 specifically designed for audio processing. You can build your own custom synthesizer, then design a control interface you can use to control it with any type of controller you can connect to your computer - even a video game controller. Create your own effects processors - delays, filters, and modulators are just the beginning. Or create a chain of processors to split your audio signal into 473 different bands, phase-invert every odd-numbered band, then multiply the even-numbered bands by pi to create a... we're not sure what that would create actually, but if you want to you can do it in Max 6!

Powerful Video Creativity with Jitter

Jitter lets you create and manipulate video and graphics directly within Max 6. You can bet that with tools such as spatial effects, colorspace conversion, and spacial warping, you'll be coming up with video effects a lot more interesting than "sepia"! And since Jitter works within the Max environment, you can use your audio to affect your video, or use your video to manipulate your audio effect parameters, or even convert audio and video streams directly into geometry data to render kaleidoscopic 3D graphics. Seriously amazing, and seriously addictive.
