Max 5

Cycling ’74 has released Max 5! I have been beta-testing the software for some time now, and can highly recommend the update. There has been a lot of discussion about the new “rounded corners”, but Max 5 is so much more about improvements and workflow. What I like the most about Max 5 is the presentation mode, which allows for separating the “code” from the user interface. This greatly enhances creating more complex patches with a neat little interface on top, since you can easily select which objects to include in the presentation, and then rearrange them as you like.
