Max for Live Ultimate Zen Guide
Max for Live Ultimate Zen Guide
Become a Max for Live Master and discover a new way of using Ableton Live
About the Book
What you get is an unusually lucid look at how Max lives inside Live – how it integrates with what Live can do. That makes it essential reading for anyone wanting to tinker with Live and make it their own. From there (see the Table of Contents below), it moves into MIDI and audio, effects and instruments, making it an effective bridge to a more in-depth education in Max or patching in general. - Peter Kirn / CDM Blogs
