Exam for Max certification level 2.
Exam for Max certification level 2
The certification test is made up of two parts (90 minutes each):
- A test of the applicant’s knowledge with open questions and comments and screen captures;
- Following a break, a series of exercises is given to the applicant with several concrete cases, with increasing difficulty. The applicant must find solutions, as if Òhe were in a professional situation (test on a Mac computer with Max).
The jury consists of two teachers (IRCAM Computer Music Designers/ Specialized Instructors) and a specialist in Max.
A certificate with the results will be sent to the participants 3 weeks following the exam.
