Intro to Max 8 & RNBO

Taught by: Kyle Duffield

Participants will learn the basics of the Max 8 programming environment and RNBO  - an add-on for Max that allows you to take Max-like patches and export them as portable code. RNBO can compile code to a variety of platforms (Audio Plugin/VST3, Web with Javascript, Raspberry Pi, C++ Libraries), however, we’re going to focus on creating a simple audio effect with RNBO for use within Ableton Live. We’ll also look at tips, tricks, and tools to start your journey towards making your own custom Audio Plugins.
