Max/MSP is an amazing tool for musicians and interactive artists. Max is a graphical programming environment – an application that allows you to create your own software. MSP adds the ability to capture, synthesize and manipulate audio. The video above shows a step sequencer made with Max/MSP by local musician and teacher Jon Barrios as he is jamming with a student. Jon is interested in setting up a gathering of interested hackers and musicians to rock out with Max/MSP or a similar (free) program Pure Data. There’s a discussion thread about it over at Hive76, so if you’re interested post a comment there or you can send us an email.
