Max For Live allows you to create your own tools for music and multimedia production, and the Max for Live Hack Night brings this amazing tool’s users together in one place. With the intention of developing a community around sharing and creating new custom-made devices and ideas, The Max for Live Hack Night is for anyone interested in building their own instruments, interfaces, or performance systems.
Unlike our last #M4LHackNight, this night will delve straight into hacking after a brief intro from our hosts describing some of the resources that we have amassed pertaining to the night’s hack topic: audio processing. After a short break with music, drinks, the night shifts into “hack mode” where attendees will be grouped into teams to collaborate and share ideas. At the end of the evening, each team will share their devices providing everyone with new tools and ideas to take home and use. All projects will be documented on GAFFTA’s site and patchers are encouraged to share their work on the Max for Live GitHub repository and on twitter to allow users that aren’t in San Francisco to fork their patches for their own projects. Both new and experienced users are encouraged to come, and make sure to bring your laptop!
