MAX/MSP is Cycling '74's visual programming suite. With this, you can build MIDI, AUDIO and VIDEO processing environments. Max connects objects with virtual patch cords to create interactive sounds, graphics, and custom effects. It is available as rental or payware. The Max program is modular. Most routines exist as shared libraries. An application programming interface (API) allows third-party development of new routines (named external objects). Thus, Max has a large user base of programmers unaffiliated with Cycling '74 who enhance the software with commercial and non-commercial extensions to the program. MSP: The ultimate sonic toolkit. Make your own unique synths, or craft your own swirling webs of delay.
