    Powerful Toolset for Media Applications
    San Francisco, CA • October 26, 2011 -- Cycling ’74 today released Version 6.0 of its Max media development tools. Enhancements to Max 6 include extensive user interface improvements, higher-quality audio, extended multi-processor support, organization tools for projects, and improved OpenGL animation and rendering tools.
    Cycling '74 also released Gen, a high-performance new patching domain that lets you create powerful audio, video, or Jitter matrix objects without leaving the comfort of Max.
    "With Max 6," explains Cycling '74 CTO Joshua Kit Clayton, "we've made a concerted effort to re-imagine the beginning user's experience, while at the same time making advanced user workflows more efficient. We're excited by what's come out of our development efforts for Max 6, and even more excited about what we have planned as Max continues to evolve."

    Max version 6 is now available retail for US $399. Gen is $100. The Max 6 upgrade retail price is $199, and is also available as a discounted bundle with Gen for $249.
