RNBO (“rainbow”): Start in Max’s UI, deliver to plug-ins, Web browsers, hardware, any OS

The new Max thing Cycling ’74 has been teasing is here, and it’s pronounced “rainbow.” Maybe the easiest way to see why this is a big deal: on the product page, you can mess with an interactive patch in your Web browser natively.

Cycling ’74 asked artists to make a collaborative Max drum kit – and shared the patches

Kick, snare, hat, tom, and sequencer – the makers of Max remind us that patching your own drum machine gives you something unique. And they invited four artists to join in with some creative ideas. Grab the patches and see what you can learn.
