A solid understanding of fundamental audio engineering concepts, specifically signal flow, is paramount to the successful operation of audio technologies. Failure to fully understand the signal path of a system can lead to students learning audio technology “functions by rote, making them inherently non-transferrable” and may also lead to the development of inaccurate conceptual models. This paper discusses the use of Max software to teach fundamental audio engineering concepts to first-year Bachelor of Audio students. Although not designed as a learning and teaching tool, Max is perfectly suited for this purpose as it is interactive, adaptive and facilitates multiple modes of learning and interaction.
