I'd like to let you know that my new web site at is now available for your browsing pleasure.

On this site, you'll be able to read about and download MSP,
my new DSP extensions for Max 3.5, and M 2.5, a new version of
the eighties interactive composition program.

Even if you're not interested in either of these programs,
you might find something of interest on the support page,
where there are a number of new and classic unsupported Max

In the next few days, a new version of Max, 3.5.9, should become
available both from Opcode and the Cycling '74 site. Opcode
is having some trouble with the copy protection (what else
is new) but I believe it might happen before X-Mas.

I'll let you know when it's ready. 3.5.9 has been in use by
a number of testers for the past month and they all seem to
think it's pretty solid. It fixes a lot of bugs and works
a bit better with MSP than 3.5.8.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of my MSP and
3.5.9 beta testers, whose support and graciously communicated
bug reports make computer programming almost a tolerable activity.

David Z.
