The Max application allows our users to define complex, interactive multimedia for installations, performances and design. While the core is written in C++ with the JUCE framework, we've started using JavaScript and Node to build extensions like file browsing, package management and search. Our latest work with Node is a user-facing package called Node for Max, which allows our users to write custom Node applications that run in parallel with the main Max application. With this tool, users could monitor a Max installation remotely, or design a generative music algorithm in JavaScript, or build a network of Max patches that communicate with each other. We're excited to talk about our technical approach and some of the creative possibilities that we envision.
