Of course, I read through the product description, but it doesn't tell me much. I am fairly new to Max, so far I am pretty comfortable with Max (building complex midi and OSC patches), but haven't touched MSP and Jitter so far. My original understanding of Gen was that it would be an enhanced version of the discontinued Pluggo, generating Code which could be used to build Plugins or software independent from the Max Runtime.
I cannot find any hints that this is what Gen does. So, can anyone tell me what Gen is good for? Especially for people like me, who are not into Jitter and MSP at this point. Maybe at some time I will start building synths, too. But my primary use for Max is building Midi/OSC Control surfaces in depth.
