MaxMSP 5 vs 4.

January 2, 2008 | 8:49 pm

Hey all,

I just bought Max/MSP (the 9 month student edition)

I’m very excited to go ahead and start learning how to use it, but I’m wondering if its a good idea to start right now, when the new version, which looks to be very different is coming out very soon.

For those who are a bit more knowledgeable on the upcoming release, do you think I should start learning it all now, or wait until 5 and learn fresh?

Thanks :)

Most knowledge from 4 will be applicable to 5.

I say get into it now. All the knowledge you gain now will transfer
over nicely when Max 5 comes out. Just, erm, ignore that whole Timeline
thing for now. Happy Patching!!!
