Step By Step – Adventures in Sequencing with Max/MSP is out now.
The 272-page guide was written by Gregory Taylor, the long-time Max expert responsible for the crucial suite of tutorials on the Cycling '74 website. Beginning with a simple step sequencer patch, Taylor slowly expands the system, introducing readers to new concepts and ideas along the way.
Autechre's Sean Booth provided a testimonial for the book, saying, "Gregory is a brilliant communicator and his tutorials are always super clear and accessible, and have been invaluable over the years to both us and the wider Max community. Many of the techniques explored here will be useful to anyone using Live, M4L, or just interested in expanding their Max sequencing capabilities."
The book is available now via the Cycling '74 website. The Kindle version costs $19.95 while the hardcopy is $24.95.
