Ten years ago, while studying abroad in Chile, I took a class on Max at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. I was still learning Spanish, so a lot of the instruction was lost in translation for me, and I left the complexities of Max behind me.
I wish I could call myself an autodidact, but for some subjects, I do much better in a guided environment. So, over the past couple months, I took the plunge back into Max under the tutelage of exceptional Austin-based organization dadageek. The course lifted the veil and got me over the initial learning curve, and now I feel like I’m capable of continuing patching in Max on my own.
The course was fairly brief (3 hours a week over about 8 weeks), so I didn’t strive for anything too complex for my final project. But I’m excited to continue working on what I did whip together, which was essentially a quadraphonic implementation of @Rodrigo’s kitchen sink help patch for karma~.
These photos were taken last weekend at the student showcase, where I performed a brief set using the patch. I hope to have some audio soon.

Thanks @Rodrigo for designing such an awesome object. I look forward to further unraveling its capabilities.
