Learning to Program Haptic Interactions using Max: Applications with Sound LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

In this workshop, participants will learn how to program force-feedback haptic interactions in Max. During the workshop, each participant will borrow a FireFader haptic device with the option of purchasing it at the end of the workshop.

When programmed in Max, audio signal flow is typically primarily unidirectional (top to bottom). In contrast, programming force feedback typically involves bidirectional audio-haptic signal flow between virtual physical elements. For this reason, programming haptic force feedback can seem daunting at first because it requires a physical way of thinking. This workshop aims to get participants easily up to speed by examining simple example haptic interactions in the familiar Max programming environment. Many of these examples are based on physical models and leverage Max’s palette of visualization objects to help communicate the means of operation to participants. More advanced examples help provide participants with specific insight into how haptics can be integrated into novel music compositions and sound art.
