On the computer in MC304, or on any of the computers in M373 on the third floor of the Music Library, launch Max 8, and take the following steps to familiarize yourself with BEAP.
To edit the patch, the padlock icon must be unlocked; to manipulate controls in the patch (dials, sliders), the padlock icon must be locked.
If you need help remembering how to construct this kind of patch, please watch A Few Minutes with BEAP: Create a Simple Synthesizer. (Other videos in this series will help you go further.) The only part of the basic patch that is missing in this video tutorial is another envelope generator to control the filter cutoff frequency.
This assignment will be graded pass/fail. If it produces sound and reproduces the functionality of the basic patch, you pass. You may ask for help with it during tutorial before submitting it on Thursday night.
