1. Collections/Tags And Searches
Cycling’s website reads, “A collection is Max’s version of a playlist and can be made up of files that fit a certain criteria (for example, all audio files from 2011, back when audio files sounded better) or a simple list of things you want to organize”.
Essentially, Max now allows you to sort your patches in any way you choose, and recall them at a moment’s notice.
Building off of the concept of a collection, Max now allows you to tag a patch or project with keywords or phrases. This will allow for a more organized recall system, as tagging multiple patches you’ll need later with the same keyword will making finding them a lot easier.
Max’s new workspace feature lets you keep working right where you left off with a new workspace feature that re-opens all the documents you were using when you last quit. This feature will certainly save a lot of time and headache.
3. Plug-in Integration
Max now allows you to access all your VST and AU plug-ins from the patcher frame. Additionally, Max for Live devices can now be used directly in your Max patcher. A new inline plug-in view allows you to configure a custom view of parameters you care about – and hide the rest. And, you can easily automate plug-in parameters with Max messages.
And, of course, Max for Live has received a big overhaul as well.
