Cycling '74 announced the release of MAX/MSP version 4.5, a major
upgrade to its graphical programming environment for audio and media.

New Features in Max/MSP include:

Max has been an environment for the development of interactive media and live
performance applications for more than a decade. Max allows the user to build
programs (called "patches") by connecting graphical objects together. Some
objects perform calculations and others make up the user interface of the program.
MSP adds a large set of objects that connect together to make audio patches
where signals flow from one object to the next, and the Jitter collection of
objects allows the user to create video or 3D graphics patches or work with
any matrix-based data.

Pricing and Availability

Max and Max/MSP 4.5 are now available for both Mac OS X and Windows XP at
Cycling '74 dealers worldwide. Registered Max users can upgrade to Max 4.5
for $100 ($120 after September 30) and Max/MSP users can upgrade for $149 ($179
after September 30) directly from Cycling '74. The MSRP for Max 4.5 is $250,
Max/MSP is $495, and the Max/MSP/Jitter bundle is $850.
