"Whew! It was a ton of work, and took a lot of long hours, but we've released Max/MSP version 4.5.7 - a free update to all Max/MSP 4.5 users."

"The update contains a littany of various bug fixes, some new pattr features, and support for our upcoming Pluggo 3.5.4 update. This version also is the first to undergo a new regimen of testing to ensure that it is the most solid we've released to-date. All very cool stuff..."


Max/MSP is a graphical environment for music, audio, and multimedia.

In use worldwide for over fifteen years by performers, composers, artists, teachers, and students, Max/MSP is the way to make your computer do things that reflect your individual ideas and dreams. Max/MSP is a true cross-platform system compatible with both Mac OS X and Windows XP. You can download Max/MSP and try it for 30 days.

Max/MSP is a graphical programming environment, which means you create your own software using a visual toolkit of objects, and connect them together with patch cords. The basic environment that includes MIDI, control, user interface, and timing objects is called Max. Built on top of Max are hundreds of objects, including two powerful collections from Cycling '74:

* MSP, a set of audio processing objects that do everything from interactive filter design to hard disk recording.

Max Application Bug Fixes:

* Supports the hosting of the latest versions of Pluggo, Mode, and Hipno (3.5.4, 1.2.4, 1.0.4) using the vst~ object.
* Collective builder creates plug-ins with the correct number of channels listed in the plug-in's metadata rather than assuming stereo.
* (Windows) The built in text editor can now edit text much larger than the prior 64K limit.

Max/MSP Object Changes:

* (random, urn, and drunk) fixed bug where multiple random objects instantiated at the same time would produce similar results.
* (drunk) fixed bug for potential crash in random number generation.
* (Windows) number box now shows "–inf" and "inf" instead of "-1.#INF" and "1.#INF".
* (line) Fixed bug where line wouldn't work with a setclock.
* (spell) input characters with ascii value above 127 are now output correctly.
* (zl) right inlet input won't mess up currently-outputting lists.
* (qlist) fixed incorrect assistance strings, fixed crash when opening editor if file not found.
* (multislider) fixed off-by-one bug with candycane colors 9-23. It now works as documented / intended.
* (ad_asio, Windows) added support for the following sample rates: 64000, 88200, 128000, 176400.
* (cross~ helpfile) added missing pcontrol so the "see also" section works properly.
* (poly~) changed steal mode so that instead of stealing the first available instance in note-off mode, it steals the instance that was sent a note-on longest ago. Previously if you were playing non-overlapping notes with long decays and using all available instances, it was simply stealing the first instance every time.
* (pattrforward) fixed inlet-addressing bug.
* (tapout~) delay times are now sample accurate.
