You should also check it's cousin, pure data, the freeware version of the MaxMSP paradigm.

Does puredata have the DSP power of Max/MSP?

Highlights of Max 5 include jWeb, text buttons, presentation mode and improved graphics all around.

Incredibly powerful program, incredibly difficult company to deal with. Licensing, unless they've changed it in the new version 5, is very arcane and cumbersome.

I agree that the licensing is a major hassle, involving challenge/response and waiting times. They have had to take into account student rebates, temporary 30-day accounts, and all other sorts of things that have boxed them into a corner. I wrote a review of Max 5 after playing with it for a few days. People are welcome to read the full review at http://jnote.org/162
