In this BMA lab, Rodrigo Constanzo will cover the basics of live sampling and processing setup using Max software. For different types of instruments and inputs, we will understand how to implement samplers and how to control all this through external MIDI controllers. At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to use Max and implement the tools learned in their musical instrument or professional practice.
