What You Will Learn

Want your Arduino to control audio, video, generative 3D visuals, or even Ableton Live? Combine Arduino with Max 8, a powerful visual programming environment opens up many possibilities for interactive installation, generative art, multimedia performance, and more! In this full day workshop you will learn very basic electronics, introductory Arduino skills, and how to use sensors and inputs to control audio and video in Max 8!

I Know a Bit of Max, what's this Arduino thing?

Arduino is a microcontroller that allows you to control electronic components and input data from sensors, buttons, switches, and output data to things like lights, motors and more! It's also software that allows you to change the code on the board. In our workshop, we will minimize Arduino coding and use it with Max.

Workshop Prerequisites
