maxtoolbox – hardware version
Checking to make sure that I have the latest version of Nathan’s
maxtoolbox, Google came up with this …
Looks very sturdy, but do they come in black?
I don’t see any firewire connection on this thing!
That’s ’cause it’s a modern Apple interface, and everything is hidden
Hey that’s not fair, I’m gonna mention this to my lawyer, unfair competition !
Joke aside, you can always get the latest version from this site :
I really hope I’ll have time this semester to update it, if I could decide myself, I’d work on it fulltime but unfortunately the name of my program at University is "Electroacoustic Composition" grrr….
The latest version (b6) was published not long ago and contains bug fixes.
The poor network admin at Angelfire is probably wondering why they
are getting so much traffic coming from C74. Apart from that your
mail reminds me of the most sensible thing I got out of the Tod
Winkler book on Max released some years ago (I wouldn’t rcommend it):
The danger about Max is that it is so easy to spend your time
developing another useful tool instead of actually using it for
artistic purposes. You seem to be on the right trackl, and speaking
of myself i find traffic is moving faster on this track than it would
without your toolbox. So thanks again.
Thanks for the appreciation :)
I guess I’m the kind of guy who prefers coding tools to help artists rather than being an artist by myself. I think it suits me well. I still enjoy doing artistic things when I have inspiration but it’s not a priority for me.
Also, I just updated the toolboxhelp.pat file in the current release because there was a typo, the S and W shortcut keys were inversed, sorry about that.
