~/ buffering : livestream - sunday 9/6 3PM CDT

the recent shift toward live streaming workshops here has been really great : ) as promised I’m gonna try and start up my own.

overall I’d like to roll with a “let’s make a thing in an hour or so” structure as opposed to a strictly tutorial style, and I’d also like to take some opportunities to develop ideas from other people as opposed to my own ideas. there will probably be a max focus since that is I guess the technology I have been using mostly, but it won’t be exclusive

but before that let’s start off with some ~democracy~ :

  • saturdays
  • sundays
  • weekdays

  • max / norns app creation
  • prososdy / norns app overviews
  • musical process stuff

Stoked on this! Just started offering the first online courses through the maker space I helped start here in pdx. We’re doing weekly Intro to Pure Data courses atm and hopefully soon offering other courses in things like Processing, OBS, VCVRack, Tidal Cycles and Max. We’re planning to also host one off seminars. Would love to have you if that’s something that you’d be interested in!


Can you post link to the pure data class?

Max!! On all the days!

@faded whateverspace.org Unfortunately both of them are full but we will be offering them again after these cohorts finish. I do have video recordings of the workshops that we will be uploading to youtube or something like that. If you’d like I can email those to you?


Yes definitely thanks

@andrew if you’re able to record and post them later that’d be great for those of us living around the world (Trent & Dan’s have been super useful to have recorded for studying later).


please do some Max stuff

Just purchased Max…again…for the third time…and this time I intend to make it stick in my brain, so any livestream help would be fantastic.

@mmml I have a quite long on-off relationship with max, but maybe this time it will last a while longer…

@andrew is this day times or evenings? the answer changes how i respond to the poll. thx

I’m thinking afternoons so it would would be better for EU folks

I definitely want to record them too - thinking about using youtube live so the comments stick around in the archive


hey all ! it’s been a second but after a busy / rough summer I think I’m finally ready to get going with some live streaming stuff.

i’m calling the series buffering. as I laid out up top, the focus of each stream will be on building a musically useful application with music tech.

this sunday (very many time zones up top), i’m going to (attempt) to build a radio in max for live. no idea how it’s going to go, but the format is supposed to be fairly youtube-friendly as well so barring any technical difficulties expect to see it up there in addition to twitch. I have a lot of ideas so we can hope to have a go at it every week or every other week -ish !

hope to see ya ~~~~


day of bump !

gonna go on in about 40 mins / 10:30cst to prep + test my setup


archive is up !

I’ll keep the code for every stream in this repo:

we tried to make an AM radio and it ended up much closer to traditional AM synthesis than expected - the end result was sort of a stereo auto-wah / mixer.

there were plenty of weird failures & some unexpected discoveries like the transmitter being the same as the receiver + effected carrier wave effects

hopefully i can revisit this at some point !

building a thing w/ @glia ! it’ll either be a softcut-enabled version of alliterate, or an adventure, or both
