Gen~: Inside Max’s Secret Weapon with Cycling '74

Many Max users don’t know of the existence of gen~; but those that do consider it their secret weapon.

In this presentation, Cycling ‘74’s Tom Hall will present a demo of the gen~ object available within Max. We’ll discuss how the gen~ object provides atomic access to audio streams at the single-sample level, and how it can be used to create both graphical and text-based programs for audio manipulation. Additionally, Cycling ‘74’s partners Mod Devices will give a demo of their Mod Duo pedal as a hosting environment for code exported from gen~.
