Learn the fundamantals of Max For Live and begin designing your own uniques Devices, Instruments and Effects in Ableton Live...
Tired of the same old sounds, modulators and effects? Learn how to design your own instruments! That’s what Max For Live is all about! Join M4L expert Danny Piccione, as he introduces you to the basics of programming in Max For Live. Learn all about Max/MSP’s objects: what they do, how they work and how to patch them together to roll-your-own cool instruments and effects that work seamlessly in Live.
Danny starts off with an introduction to Max/MSP and how it is integrated into Ableton Live. He then explains the different object types and how the Max For Live UI works. Next he takes a look at some of the cool Max Objects—which handle the MIDI side of things— showing you what they do how you can use them.
From there Danny explains audio processing using the MSP Objects, which create and process audio. He even show’s you how to build a basic amplitude modulator synth! Finally, Danny wraps it up by showing you how to build a very cool random note Note Sequencer!
Max/MSP and Max For Live require a bit learning and practice. In this comprehensive tutorial, Max For Live: Basics, Danny Piccione will get you started on you way to becoming a real M4L programmer!

This was really good to get started with MAX for Live. I got a really good basic understanding, being able to click along myself in MAX while watching the video.
Good introduction to Max for Live. I have some modest experience with programming. The material helped put it together in a way I could understand and use. Nice job.
Awesome tutorial. I am already hungry for more. Hopefully it would come soon.
This is a very good introduction to Max4Live. It is specially good for people that have no experience with Max/MSP at all. I like the fact that it covers both, the MIDI and Audio aspects of Max4Live.
Good basics tutorial, but where's the follow up?
This was an incredibly helpful tutorial. I had been working with Max for some time but hadn't been able to accomplish some of the things I was interested in. Thanks to the information i received here a new pathway involving the integration of Max with Ableton Live is open to me. I look forward to the next, more advanced, tutorial.
Great stuff and going through the Max 6 tutorials but curious also whether you are planning more MacProVideo tutorials. Would be a shame to see you stop at just this one as it was great.
Easy to follow, good overview
Great tutorial for begging with m4L.Looking forward for more m4L videos for more advanced concepts.
Great introductory video that gets you going quickly on MAX and MSP. Very clearly explained and demonstrated. Now we need the next installment. ;)
Great tutorial to get you started in Max For Live. You need to create more tutorials for all the control elements (midi, api's, launchpad, APC40, Ohm...) in Max For Live. This could really make a huge impact on the Live community.
Excellent tutor; excellent tutorial!!! Thanks and please produce some more m4l tutorials!
Excellent tutorial. This has really got me going on Max. The only problem is that it suddenly stops. Please give us more. Many thanks.
