Cycling ’74 发布了 Max 的第 8 版,该公司称其为“最接近 Max 所拥有的思维扩展药物”。

可视化编程语言在最新迭代中进行了大量新改进,最引人注目的是新 MC 的引入。对象。

我们假设 MC 代表多声道,而 Cycling ’74 确信它将“改变您对声音设计的想象”。它使具有 100 个音频通道的 Patch 看起来与具有单通道的 Patch 一样简单。

看起来 MC 将使您能够使用更少的对象来操作多个音频通道和操作。

版本 8 中的大部分开发都集中在性能上。 Cycling ’74 现在声称 Max 在 Windows 上的启动速度比以前快 20 倍,加载补丁的速度也快四倍。整体性能得到改善,复杂的 UI 操作响应速度明显加快。

另一个重大更新是无需修补即可使用硬件控制补丁的能力。在新的映射模式中,您只需三个步骤即可将物理控件分配给您的补丁;只需进入映射模式,选择一个滑块,然后移动您的控制器 – 完成。

其他改进包括一个新的搜索边栏,它允许您访问 Max 附带的数千个 Max 示例和教程,以及来自网络论坛和深入文章的结果。


Cycling ‘74 has released version 8 of Max and the company is calling it “the closest thing to a mind-expanding drug Max has ever had”.

The visual programming language has taken on a raft of new improvements in the latest iteration, most notably the introduction of the new MC. objects.

MC, we’re presuming, stands for multi-channel and Cycling ‘74 is sure it will “transform how you imagine sound design”. It makes patches with 100 channels of audio look as simple as those with a single channel.

It seems MC will give you the ability to manipulate multiple audio channels and operations with fewer objects.

Much of the development in version 8 has been focussing on performance. Cycling ’74 now claim that Max will launch 20 times faster on Windows than before and load patches up to four times as quick. Performance as a whole is improved, with complex UI operations being significantly more responsive.

Another big update is the ability to control your patches with hardware, without the need to patch. In the new Mappings Mode, you can assign physical controls to your patch in just three steps; simply enter Mappings Mode, select a slider and then move your controller – done.

Other improvements include a new Search Sidebar which allows you access to thousands of Max examples and tutorials that ship with Max, along with results from web forums and in-depth articles.
