I actually don't think it made sense for Max to be embedded in any DAW. Cycling could never use Max as a VST or AU in a Bug free way, how on earth is that lack of developer skill set going to translate to them embedding in a complex internally DAW like Live? They're amazing programmers on their own, but IMO embedding them is a mistake. Max should have stayed a separate program IMO, and Cycling should have hired people to help them with their VST/AU implementation.stringtapper wrote: Those are fair points. It you look at it only from the standpoint of production then it would have made a lot more sense to make Max for Logic.
Again I don't run this show, and there are things about Live that I like a lot more than their obvious competitor Bitwig, but the lack of sandboxing of VSTs, and the modular environment from a third party embedded into their code part not so much, that's where Bitwig are getting it right.
