Ableton Acquires Cycling '74

Ableton has just announced the purchase of Cycling ’74 – the makers of Max/MSP, which is one of the first visual music programming software packages in history. 

Max For Live has been included with Ableton Live for some years, enabling the creation of custom sounds and effects for musicians. It will be interesting to see what comes of this acquisition – we would love to see this bring more expression to their Push MIDI controller – but only time will tell.
