However, there is also not enough literature into English. We can also include Brazil, as Brazilian Portuguese is close to Spanish, and many people will be able to read the book there.


The methodology I used was to build trancisco as a pyramid, reviewing past concepts as new ones are introduced, so knowledge is enlarged and solidified. At that time I was working in a small electroacoustic music laboratory in Buenos Aires.

How would you describe the teaching methodology used here? When you aren’t writing books about Max, what else do you do?

You can expect a very detailed and step-by-step guide to get introduced in Max programming. Could you put a link back to us?
