why must you torture me so!
i just got a shiny new macbook pro and i really want to get cracking with a copy of max all of my own. unfortunately i just noticed the max 5 post on the front page. now i’ve got this predicament. it doesn’t seem to make sense to make a purchase at this point in time, but “first quarter” 2008 seems so very far away. can anyone speculate on a more concrete release? or any details about upgrades and such?

my 2 cents…
David Zicarelli said himself that the basic ideas behind using Max will not change:
“you still use the same basic collection of objects in the same way”
First quarter 2008 is still months away. If you’re really gung-ho about getting cracking with Max then several months is enough time to get through the basics. Cycling has always been a very end-user friendly company and I’m sure the upgrade scheme will be reasonable.
I’d say go for it now. You could always download the 30 day demo and check it out before dropping the money on the full purchase.

I haven’t seen any official announcements of pricing, but in the past Cycling ’74 has provided a reduced price update path to the new release for people with licenses for the previous version. It has also generally made a special offer for recent purchasers of the previous version, although that might be moot for a purchase made today.
If I were you I’d get the 30-day trial, purchase a full license towards the end of the 30 days, and view whatever the update fee is as your premium for getting started earlier with Max/MSP.
If you’re a student I’d go for the extended student trial (something like 9 months), which should keep you going nicely until Max 5 arrives.
Caveat: nobody knows exactly what the future will bring. This is just an educated guess.

I thought that it is possible to buy/sell copies that use iLok hardware key??
Last time I asked, Cycling support said this is OK.
