Educational Institutions

Institutions all over the world have integrated Max into their classrooms, labs, and performance spaces. Max is an ideal teaching tool that introduces students to the world of media technology with an intuitive graphical interface.

At the same time, Max can be used as a platform for advanced research via Javascript and C++ APIs, the unique Gen language for DSP and visual effects, and thousands of third-party extensions. We provide a variety of options for students and institutions to use Max.


Workshops and Events

You can learn Max at workshops sponsored by organizations including Harvestworks (New York), Women’s Audio Mission (San Francisco), and IRCAM (Paris). Max users are regularly sharing their work at gatherings large and small, from Ableton’s annual Loop event to our irregularly scheduled meet-ups we call Max Connect.


Max in Translation

We’ve partnered with MI7 Japan and Francisco Colasanto at CMMAS in Mexico to create Japanese and Spanish versions of Max 7. There are also books on learning Max available in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, and even English.


Teach Yourself Max

We won’t lie: Max has a learning curve. But you don’t have to go it alone. Max includes innovative interactive learning tools and extensive documentation. You can also call upon an active and helpful Forum community and endless hours of fun YouTube tutorials.

For more in-depth instruction, there is a growing list of trainers, consultants, and online courses you can call upon to assist you in your journey to Max mastery.


A Playground for Invention

Max is an infinitely flexible place to create interactive media software. With in-depth tools for audio, graphics, interaction, and communication, Max is an environment to explore and develop your own ideas.



Each object does somแething. Max has objects that generate sound waves, represent hardware, or provide a UI for interaction.



Patchcords connect one object to another. This connection lets objects share their output with connected objects.



Connect UI objects like dials and sliders to provide control values or display results. Modulate, map and scale data to get just the right results.


Create Software Built Around You, In the Moment

Drag in your own audio clips and start manipulating them and connecting effects

Map your patcher with MIDI controllers as you go to start playing with your creation while you work


Expanded Ideas

Max patching starts on a blank canvas, free from any structure. This makes it natural to create interconnected processes and discover nonlinear approaches that would be hard to create elsewhere. The Max patcher automatically expands to fit your work as it grows, no matter how much space you take up.


Explore Sound without Limits

Design a custom synthesizer with as many oscillators and effects as you wish.

Manipulate samples in every way, including timestretch and pitch shifting.

Scale up to more layered sounds using MC objects to patch multichannel audio.


Make Visual Music

Max includes full-featured, expandable video and graphics tools with Jitter. Jitter is optimized for realtime audiovisual work, and is easy to combine with audio, sequencing, and modulation like everything else in Max.


Prototype and Evaluate

Flexible access to hardware makes Max a perfect environment for prototyping. Connect your development board to Max and get instant access to sensors, knobs, and switches. Watch the data stream in as you develop the interaction.

Countless commercial products, art installations, and stage shows have relied on Max to glue together all the p


Generate Audio, Video, Code

Use Gen to patch together fine-tuned processes for audio, matrix data, or texture processing. Gen lets you combine procedural commands with visual patching to simplify the creation of custom processes.

Gen objects can also output source code to be used elsewhere if needed.
arts of their process.


Extended Max

Max’s built-in Package Manager offers immediate access to over 50 add-ons covering everything from computer vision to support for hardware controllers including the Monome and ROLI Seaboard.

If the feature you want doesn’t exist in Max, chances are someone in the community has created it. And if they haven’t, you can extend Max yourself using C++, NodeJS, Java, or JavaScript.
