Sound Processing Techniques

Sound Processing Techniques

The signal processing component of Max, MSP, offers a world of options for manipulating an incoming audio stream. Common processing techniques include filtering, equalization, amplitude modulation, overdrive, time stretching, pitch shifting, reverb, delay, compression, and more. The gen~ object gives users even more low-level tools to explore audio processing. Here are some tutorials, objects, and guides to get you started.
