When you make a generative Max patch like we did last time, you can play the sound using the operating system’s built-in synthesizer, though it doesn’t sound great. You can also send the MIDI notes to an external software synthesizer using the virtual MIDI ports Max creates.
Another option is to render the audio within Max, using the native MSP audio objects. We will do that soon, but for this assignment we’ll do something easier: work with an add-on package for Max called Auzzie. This will let us focus on generating sound quickly, add effects, and experiment with audio routing possibilities.
We will rely on the note-generating techniques we explored in the last assignment.
