I'm new to all this as just bought Max for LIve last week... what an amazing program, it has really inspired me and bought a whole new enthusiasm to my music production. I am loving every minute of going through the Max help tutorial learning how to program patches. I can't believe how long I've been missing out on Max.
So after discovering max I'm thinking about crosgrading to Max/MSP. (not including Jitter)
Can anyone tell me or post links about what I would gain by doing this. Had a look about the Cycling and ableton sites but can't really see any info directly comparing the two. Obviously I'd be able to run Max in stand alone but are there any other gains??
