This programming package was and is responsible for my deepening in electronic music. Before this platform was available, it was almost impossible to make electro-acoustic music without pushing into highly-subsidized (university and radio) areas! Everything was hardware and priceless.
Max consists of the parts Max, MSP and Jitter. Max is a graphical data MIDI environment for programming interfaces and automations. MSP is the (DSP) audio part of this environment. Jitter is the video part and is also used for interfaces.
