Current must have libraries?

    All I could find was a thread from 2007. What are the libraries for Max/MSP that are must haves today?

      Hi Wackyvorlon,
      This really depends a lot on what type of things you do with Max. Some essentials on my list are:
      - Sarcduino (straightforward way to read all inputs on Arduino boards into max at a stable sample rate.)
      - FTM. Ircam's awesome library from the iMTR group. Allows for matrix operations, named objects and variable and a lot of other goodies.
      - Soundhack externals. Very cool effects that make any msp chain sound great.
      - CNMAT everything. Great collection of objects, particularly useful for FFT stuff and advanced OSC routing.
      - BACH. If you write score-based music this is a must have. You can explore ideas and do procedural material generation very quickly.
      All best
