CEO David Zicarelli told us, "In almost twenty years of working on this software, thereâ€™s never been anything close to the transformation weâ€™re undertaking. This is Max for the next twenty years."
In addition to a modern infrastructure designed to support todayâ€™s multi-core processors and tomorrowâ€™s operating systems, Max 5 features a stylized UI intended to aid in the expression and understanding of complex ideas. Each graphical element has a unique look that informs the user of its function, and the new presentation mode allows performance layouts that do not affect the programmerâ€™s view of the patch. This new system provides a more efficient workflow, and offers a richer experience for both programmer and educator.
Pricing and Availability:
The complete Max 5 bundle (which includes all the Max, MSP, and Jitter objects) is $699. There is a Max/MSP bundle for $495. The Max 5 Upgrade is $199.
