So, I've finally gotten around to d/l-ing the demo for Max/MSP. I've been going through the Tutes and learning a whole bunch. I'm now at the point where I think I can start building some stuff. I've already done one that picks a word at random from a list and inputs it into a sentence. It's really fun, but it's a little simplistic and I'd like to move on to something audio related.
Can anybody think of any simple audio ideas to start on that won't be too complex? I've got ideas for building massive interactive generative music engines and stuff like that, but I figure I'd better figure out how to get my britches on before I go outgrowing them.
I've been thinking of something like a delay module or distortion unit, but I have no idea how much work and depth of skillset I'll need to be able to actually do something like that. Ideally I'd like to finish it before the demo runs out (still saving for a full copy).
