Wow, it seems like only yesterday when the Cycling ’74 site launched,
with the lovely scans of the 1974 Schwinn catalog!

I still remember Max’s pre-product days with leaked copies from IRCAM,
then the start of “productizing” at Intelligent Music, and then the
big move to Opcode.

I remember scrambling to get all my externals* to a state where I
wouldn’t be too ashamed of them.

I remember cobbling together a bunch of examples, and sitting in
David’s apartment with Marsha Vdovin, deciding what was going to be on
the disk, and what the top-level patchers should be called.

I remember the day when David convinced me that my externals would be
better off being maintained by him (completely true), although I’m a
little bit sorry I didn’t ask for an “about box” credit at the time :-)

I remember the happiness I felt when it became clear that Max was not
going to go down with the Opcode ship.

I remember wondering why Cycling was wasting time with that Jitter
thing, until I saw what could be done with it in the right hands.

I remember the dark years, of constant OS and hardware platform
upgrades, which was part of the genesis of the modern platform of Max 5.

It’s remarkable how long Max has been around, and what great strides
it has made over the years. Here’s to many more years!

This should go into history books. I don’t know how David managed it,
but Gibson would have killed Max as it killed all these other great
opcode programs. I still don’t know why…
The whole world would be very different and much more gray and dark…

I’d still love to see a reader for the old 68k format files. There is
one for Pd as far as I know… That would be a nice anniversary project…

Together with the new skin feature of Max 7 we could be able to remake
the very first Max patches and let them look like the originals for the
25th anniversary of Max itself (which could be soon, but I don’t know
the exact date…). Lets organise a big party for that event all over
the world, together with the Pd community…

Yes, at least for my lifetime, I don’t want to miss it. That’s hopefully
some more decades…
Its funny how you can suddenly see, that you committed your life to
something without being aware of making a conscious decision about it in
the past…
