Max For Live Opens New Doors      24/11/09

Cycling '74 and Ableton have introduce Max For Live - a visual programming toolkit that adds an "edit button" to Live.

Though Max For Live is just out, beta testers have already been giving it a workout. Here are some examples that demonstrate the types of doors that Max For Live opens up for Live users:
