A finding about Max/MSP/Jitter, applied to the creation of art and programming:
Programming can seem rather daunting when you’re a novice. Now, imagine programming for a person that considers their learning style much more conducive to visualizing a process versus seeing in code and plain text. Max/MSP/Jitter helps patch this gap for individuals seeking a dynamic toolset that allows mapping of code, and programming that enables processes to be charted and visualized. Max is predominantly used by musicians and visual artists interested in incorporating sound into immersive and interactive environments, and serves as a fantastic medium for anyone interested in creating music sets that are both dynamic and engaging.
