Your tools grow along with your creative process.

A lot of Max projects start out simple, with an idea, but continue to grow. Using a patch or performing with it will give you new ideas. You can always add another feature you dreamed up on the way to the show. Copy and paste a new idea from the Max forums and hook it up. As your ideas blossom, your Max patch will stretch to accommodate them.
