Project 4: MAX MIDI MACHINE- MMM

 

Description

Due date: Mar 13, 2008
Value of assignment: 10%

Write a program that will generate MIDI music without using a synth keyboard. Use as many MIDI channels as needed. Some of the parameters must be controlled by the PC-70 Controller (i.e. velocity, program change etc.) The creation process must be explained clearly and the interface must be easy to understand, even if someone is seeing it for the first time. Your program will be shown in class and will be experienced on MARCH 13 by your other classmates (i.e. people who don’t know anything about your MAX MIDI MACHINE), so make sure it is clear and that it does what you say it does.

Save the patch as both: a text file and binary file.
Upload the patches - a text file- onto your Blog.
Make an audio recording of the sound generated by your program and upload the sound file to Ourmedia / Internet Archives. Post a link with the ourmedia player + a downloadable link to your Blogger account by March 13 at 9 am.
You will be presenting your patch to the class on Thursday March 13. Your program will be evaluated on its design: Is it easy to use and is it doing what it is suppose to do.
You must also give a description of your experience, process, and / or concept on your blog.
Your program will be graded on: functionality, esthetic and above all sound output! Be creative!
