Cycling ’74: 20Concepts 00-04

In the spirit of the 20Objects lessons that I mentioned in the last post, Cycling ’74 also created (well, partially, in any case) a second series of tutorials called “20Concepts.” Perhaps the most important difference, aside from the fact that they’re not actually finished, is that they start not with the simplest object in the Max/MSP/Jitter universe – the button – but, instead, they start with one of the most complex – the Vizzie modules for video manipulations. Actually, I think it makes great sense, as it’s much more engaging to start with the big pictures. And, besides, the Vizzie modules are fun!

Here’s the complete list of (intended) tutorials in the 20Concepts curriculum:

  • 20Concepts Curriculum Overview (Done)
  • 01: Vizzie Part 1 (Done)
  • 02: Vizzie Part 2 (Done)
  • 03: Messages Part 1 (Done)
  • 04: Messages Part 2 (Nonexistent)
  • 05: Time
  • 06: MIDI
  • 07: More About Numbers
  • 08: Networks
  • 09: Subpatchers
  • 10: Presets and The Pattr Object
  • 11: Audio Generation
  • 12: Audio Filtering
  • 13: Audio Levels
  • 14: Audio FX
  • 15: Jitter Input
  • 16: Jitter FX
  • 17: Jitter Compositing
  • 18: OpenGL Part 1
  • 19: OpenGL Part 2
  • 20: Max Output

As with the 20Objects tutorials, these look like they might be short but, when you actually do all of the exercises, they are veeeery time-consuming. So far, I’ve only gotten through the first three, but they have been very, very helpful so far. I look forward to the rest!

Here are video walkthroughs of the lessons that I’ve done so far.

Completed:

  • Cycling ’74 20Concepts, Lesson 00, 20Concepts Curriculum Overview; Lesson 01: Vizzie Part 1; Lesson 02: Vizzie Part 2, and Lesson 03: Messages Part 1 (13 exercises)
  • Lesson 04: Messages Part 2 is empty on the web page
  • Patches can be downloaded from http://db.tt/GBYLb0vY
