I have started moving to Max 5 from 4.6.
I have lots of complex patches in 4.6 and a continuing schedule of
personal projects and consulting deadlines so I am wary of jumping
I know there are other great new things in Max 5 but transport and
the associated timing scheme are of most immediate interest.
I am wondering if there are any dangers in running both versions
together. My idea is to continue running my production stuff in 4.6
while controlling timing with patches written in 5. I plan to send
signals 5 >> 4.6 via either midi or udp. If this is indeed feasible
and safe, is there an advantage to creating the Max 5 patches as
I don't need examples, just advice and caveats.
